Err = Erm.
The radio is a Motorola not a Hytera.
Marc ID is the DMR MARC Network which you register with to get your ID in order to use the network.

it was an example.
If the other people use radio who send data (thats what the sms are) in an proprietary form your radio cant decode.

Does anyone try DSD+?
Here in my Area nobody use Digital PMRs....

'Er' or 'Err' is a mental pause that translates sometimes into a sound from the mouth.

When uttered by someone it means that they have temporarily lost their train of thought, the sound is used as a placeholder until the actual thought is resolved.

In the written word, 'er' is an over emphasis to suggest that the writer is having a mental pause, but in reality it is an irony suggesting that the answer that follows is simple and obvious.

Hope that helps.

DMR MARC is an amateur radio network of DMR repeaters. No, it is not PMR446.
I can understand why you would be confused about it, as you were posting in the license free forum and someone started talking about a licensed only network.

Not many people use digital PMR446 radios in the UK at the moment, and the people who do mostly use proper licensed radios like the Motorola DP3600, DP4800, Hytera PD785 and so on. Some people also use dPMR radios, like the cheap ones from China on these frequencies.
They usually realise that it's illegal but just want to try their radios out and the PMR446 band is not really regulated well in the UK (or probably most countries really). These are the hobbyists and I'm sure many of them will have tried out text messaging but probably don't use it regularly it's difficult to write anything with this type of radio.

I'm not sure if you were talking about DMR on PMR446 or dPMR on PMR446 as your first post didn't make that clear. There are some commercial users of these modes, but as with most commercial radio systems, most of the radio users don't really bother to use the radios to their full potential, or haven't been told how to do so. So I would imagine that most of the commercial users don't use the text messaging feature.

A "MARC ID" is the radio ID given to people who sign up to the DMR-MARC amateur radio network. They are told to put this ID into their radio so that others will know who they are when they transmit.

I see the Radio ID when i receive Amateur Radio via my SDR Dongle.

The Problem is and was for me that the digital PMR Radio cost to much. Commercial Radio even the good known Names on the Market are cheaper.
