Amateur Radio Databases
About The Databases
Return To The NDC Home Page, link to the left. These Amateur Radio databases below are for the Nextion Display Driver and DMR Radios. Every effort is made to ensure that all new database issues are resolved and then applied accordingly to the downloadable files below.
These types of errors that We try to avoid here are called Soft-Programming, Soft-Coding Errors. These errors can cause abnormal program responses, behaviors, and can make a DMR Radio function improperly / erratically. We say this only to let you know that We take providing these databases listed below very seriously. They are hand checked before being posted.
These Databases Are Not Publicized
We do not PUBLICIZE these databases elsewhere. What this means is that YOU will have to keep tract of the last time YOU downloaded them and determine if YOU need an update. We try our best to update them as often as possible. They are most likely updated late evening East Coast United States time. This website area, these databases are to be considered PRIVATE.
ATTENTION: AUTOMATIC pulls of these files is frowned upon. IF we discover that YOUR AUTOMATIC pulls of these files below are getting to be a nuisance, an abuse of Our server, WE reserve the right to BLOCK your IP address, this is your only WARNING. IF you need a convenient pull and place script to place these databases into Pi-Star/Nextion Display Driver, CLICK HERE.
“Stripped.csv File” - Link Is To The Left. (11,860,772 bytes) A more complete “stripped.csv” User file, used by the Nextion Display Driver. It's not necessary to use this file with Our screen code. We provide this file for those who wish to see less “id callsign not in stripped.csv file” on Our display's user screen info sections.
“Anytone 878.csv File” - Link Is To The Left. (11,860,772 bytes) A more complete “Anytone 878.csv” User file. We provide this file for those who wish to align their Anytone 878 DMR radio with the “stripped.csv file” above. This makes the Anytone 878 DMR radio and Hotspot/Repeater display the same DMR user information.
“TGIF_groups.txt File” - Link Is To The Left. (11,791 bytes) This is a Talk Groups file to be used with the Nextion Display Driver to properly display the Talk Group names associated with the TGIF Network. This helps display the proper Talk Group names on Our Nextion Display Code.
“DMR+_groups.txt File” - Link Is To The Left. (16,639 bytes) This is a Talk Groups / Reflector file to be used with the Nextion Display Driver to properly display the Talk Group names associated with the DMR+ Network. This helps display the proper Talk Group / Reflector names on Our Nextion Display Code.
My Email Link Is To The Left. So, if you see, or even think you see a mistake within one of the databases above, PLEASE send us a short Email with all of the details so We can correct it. Every effort is made to keep errors out of these databases.
02/11/21: The USER Databse Files Provided Here
ATTENTION: After being attacked in 2019/2020 over too much personal information being in our publicly offered USER Database files (From Foreign Country HAMS) and ALSO finding out that A LOT of the foreign Cities, States, and/or Regions information was never properly reported, or overly reported in other cases, the City/State/Region information was removed and replaced with the Country Name in all except for 4 countries.
It is our intent to at least report the proper Callsign, Full Name, and Country as best as the information used to update the database files can provide. With a 190,000 contacts in the databse files now, We don't have the time to handle threats of Foreign lawsuits from disgruntle HAMS that want to talk on the HAM bands, yet, want no-one to know who or where they are.
Is there other databases out there that provide more info? YES. It's just a matter of time when such databases will be taken down, forced to alter what they provide, continue to provide those mentioned inaccuracies above, or even worse, hidden in places that only a few HAMS can enjoy them.
Please accept Our sincerest apologies ahead of time if the database files that We provide here don't measure up to your needs. We are proud that these databases are "HAND CHECKED" for alignment, all non-ASCII charactres removed, and recently found mallicious code in other databases is not present in these. Soft-Programming, Soft-Coding Errors as mentioned above are a threat when these types of databases are used in programs not programmed to inspect for and eliminate such errors. This is why We are PROUD to offer these databases here.
