DMR ID - Download several regions all at once (Request)

Post by F6GVE » Sat Feb 08, 2020 10:49 am

The tool to download the ID from Hamdigital, filtered by region and inactivity is a fabulous tool.
Instead of downloading one region at a time, then another one, then another one again, would it be possible to do this all at once?
something like 208;204;3022, etc.

It would be easy to copy/paste the good formula. Personally I have 30 regions...

Even if the TA is now displayed :) , I like better the dB if available, as the display is ordinary faster

Roger mentioned not long ago that he would refresh, update and renew CPS. I like the offer with many regions to download in an instant. I support!

Although I could change the code, if I had time, to use a comma separated list.

It would need to make a separate request to hamdigital for each region, and 30 regions would take a very long time to download.

It normally takes at least 5 seconds per request to hamdigital

I understand that this feature isn't a high priority.
As it is, it's already great. Thanks a lot.

Just confirming, under OpenGD77 1024 digital contacts are supported?

Yes. The total number of digital contacts is still 1024, but I can't image why anyone would have that many "Contacts" in there radio.

i.e Contacts can be a TG or a Private Call.

I have about 20 TG's as Contacts and currently only one or two private call ID's.

IMHO trying to access either 1024 TG's or 1024 PCs via the menu's in the radio, would be exceedingly time consuming.

If you are just trying to have the Callign and names for stations stored in the radio, so that they come up on the display, you should be using the DMR ID system, as that can hold well over 10,000 contacts (albeit you can't use them to make a Private Call or as a TG)
