Although not Brandmeister or DMR specific, you can use text messages through APRS to talk to a program on a computer.


I would prefer a method native to Brandmeister, can anyone tell me what kind of hoops I'm likely to have to jump through to get access to BM MQTT Messaging?

You can use BM's Simple External Application API to get call information and build your own app which is controlled with a DMR radio.

An example of an application using the Simple External Application API can be found here.

If you have access to a BM server, then you can develop your applications also using BM's MQTT API. This even allows controlling your app using text messages.
