Upcoming Online DMR Programming Class

I ran across this browsing the web recently.  It may be worth the time, if you are like me and could use a bit of a refresher on DMR radio programming.  It covers the radios most of us have and looks to be informative.

---Taken from the web
This is a follow up class to the "Intro the the Maine DMR System" online class. This class will cover building a codeplug from start to finish, for most popular DMR radios (Motorola, TYT, Radioddity, Anytone, and more). This class will also cover Brandmeister and DMR-MARC (or any C-Bridge) systems. It will NOT cover installation of the CPS software or connection to your radio. You must already know how to download/upload a codeplug to your specific radio. Check YouTube for a tutorial on connecting to your radio to your PC. This class was developed by kb1zpp and sponsored by the SJVARA.
