Setting Up APRS in a Hytera Mobile or Portable Radio


The Hytera radio is a bit tricky when trying to configure it to work in a Motorola IPSC network of repeaters. This is because the haters default ports for telemetry and GPS are different then that of the Motorola. This left me at a huge quandary when trying to figure out why my HT would work on my Raspberry Pi 3 with DVMega and not over the repeater network when other users with Motorola radios would be able to completely be able to get it to work with no issue. My first thought was the Hytera Radio was incompatible with the Motorola data reporting ports. Through my many hours of experimenting and trying to figure this out I stumbled upon the Motorola Default ports and began to program. Upon writing the radio on several occasions, I found gold below is how to set up your HYTERA mobile or portable radio to Beacon APRS on a Motorola IPSC network of repeaters.
