I use radios of Hytera and Motorola. Would it be helpful for Selfcare to have two IDs?

If you are not using SMS and APRS reporting, then it doesn't really matter. But if you are, IMHO you have 2 options...

1) use only one DMR ID and before you use the radio, switch to the appropriate radio in your Self-Care. This might be painful, but this is best when you want to receive SMS because there is no mistake possible of where to send it.

2) request an additional DMR ID, and use 2 different one for each radio, and configure both with the corresponding manufacturers in the Self-Care. However, when someone wants to private call you or send you an SMS... they might send it to the radio you are not using at this time.. or they'll have to try twice which can be painful for them this time...

Gotta choose now ! :-)

Yes, when you want to use GPS/APRS and SMS, then a second ID makes things much easier!
