Boafeng DM-5R: Tier II Support

Radioddity has updated the DM-5R listing with this cryptic note about Tier II support:
"Support DMR repeater function (DMR Tier I; support Tier II if upgraded with less than $10)"
Thanks to Don for pointing out the update.


  1. Could they be referring to purchase of a programming cable?

  2. The programming software is password locked to unzip

  3. You know, I submitted a couple questions to them. First, what was the nature of the $10 upgrade? Second, did the new DM5R retain the same direct keyboard programming and spoken menu feedback of the UV5R? And could I get access to the programming software to test for screen reader accessibility? And they wrote me back with a 10% off coupon code, which didn't answer any of my questions. Not very impressed with that...
