What is a Code Plugs?

A code plug is simply a radio’s configuration file. Using a manufacturer’s programming software you configure the channels and operating parameters of a radio. This file is uploaded to the radio and typically should also be saved on you computer as a backup. You can also download the code plug from a radio to modify it. Building a code plug can take many hours, especially if you want to program hundreds of channels. The code plug can also contain a Contact List of Radio IDs, call signs, and names to be displayed. You can find copies of configured code plugs on the web for different models of radio; check out the different Yahoo DMR groups. All DMR radios support a limited number of entries in the Contact List; you can download Code Plugs with the Contact List populated using a generator on the DMR-MARC home page.
