I would like to set a gateway from dmr to zello walkie talkie app for mobile phone users. I have sent a email asking if i can get a talkgroup number and asking for permission to do this. For myself and other amateur radio members of the world wide amateur radio group on zello to use from a smart phone

I'm not sure where you're located, but FCC rules prohibit transmissions being made by other than an amateur. Under the rule definitions, having an incoming Zello message trigger a communication out of a hotspot or repeater would violate those rules. So it can't happen in the US, at least.

the channel would only be used for amateur radio users only anyone else would not be allowed to use the channel

Using Zello to communicate to & from DMR networks is absurd.

In order to use the DMR, everybody is required to be a licensed HAM OP and to be assigned a valid DMR ID. Plus, I am not even sure if it is possible to link two completely different standards and protocols...

Doing that (simply said, forwarding the traffic bidirectionally between Zello & DMR) could even be forbidden and/or illegal in most of the countries, whatsoever.

There are examples of people linking Echolink users to the UHF repeaters, but rules might be rather different regarding this matter.

I'd recommend you speak to your country's HAM radio officials regarding the broadcasting laws or something like that, and of course with the Brandmeister about this.

Yes it is very easy to link zello and also dmr together and yes it would only be used for amateur radio users to communicate from a cell phone in to dmr. There is no law what voip over ip you use in any country to link rf to any voip software only law is that its used by radio hams
