The DMR-MARC Worldwide Network
Our network is an all-digital
group of over 200 MOTOTRBO DMR repeaters in 18 countries with over 3,500 users. We are all
operators many of whom are Motorola Solutions employees, Motorola
Service Station employees, dealers, system installers, and Motorola equipment aficionados.
All repeaters on our network are connected all the time. TRBO radios have great voice quality, great coverage, and extended battery life all in LESS THAN 1/3 the channel bandwidth of a traditional analog FM repeater with TWICE as many voice channels! Our mission is to offer you a reliable and scalable choice in connectivity: local, regional, national, and international. Isn't time you upgraded to digital radio's cutting edge?

- BEWARE! CPS 8.5 requires a 25 kHz entitlement key to program 25 kHz analog channels. The entitlement key is free with a paid CPS subscription but we see no need to update subscriber firmware newer than R01.09.10 using CPS 8.0

Please make sure you read the radio programming instructions before transmitting on the network!
- We HIGHLY recommend ALL DMR-MARC trustees and bridge partners to ONLY use the below firmware. This helps minimize system incompatibilities.
Repeaters ONLY R02.20.12 XPR4550,DM3601,XPR6550,DP3601
Mobiles and Portables
R01.09.10* (or newer) XPR5550,DM4601,XPR7550,DP4601,SL7550

- IMPORTANT!! Repeater Firmware R02.20.12 has been released. Please update your repeater immediately. DO NOT UPGRADE TO THE LATEST VERSION OF REPEATER FIRMWARE!!! You have been warned. Again.
- ADVISORY! If you upgrade an XPR4550 or XPR6550 past R01.09.10, you will need a 25 kHz entitlement key for wideband 25 kHz analog channels. Therefore, we recommend R01.09.10 and CPS version 8 for programming those units.
- The Nebraska Network is now active! Use TG3131 on TS2 for statewide comms.
- New NorCal talkgroups have been launched, some with new time slots. See the Networked Repeater map.
- The Lonestar Network is now active! If you have a Texas MOTOTRBO repeater and are interested in joining the Lonestar Network which is connected to DMR-MARC and a statewide Texas network on slot 2, email Jim Hopper, W5EBQ.
- We have launched regional talkgroups on time slot 2. These talkgroups are only be available for
contacts within the region. If you are outside the region you must use TG3 North America for region to region contacts, just like before. Note: Your master repeater's location dictates if you have access to the regional talkgroup. For example, peers of K9MOT have access to the Midwest Talkgroup, peers of NE1B have access to the Northeast talkgroup, peers of the RMHR and NoCo groups have access to the Mountain talkgroup, peers of Norcal, Arizona, and Hawaii have access to the Southwest talkgroup, etc.
Regional Talk Group Status:
Talkgroup Name Group Call Activation Northeast 3172 Mid-Atlantic 3173 Southeast 3174 Texas-Oklahoma 3175 Southwest 3176 Mountain 3177 Midwest 3169
- NETWORK ISSUES: If you notice any problems, complete the form under the Contact Us link at the top of the page. This way your observation gets routed to the specialists. Complaining on the air, even during the weekly net, will do you no good. Thanks for your patience and help in this matter.
