Ailunce HD1 Codeplug for Hotspot Users
Making a Ailunce HD1 codeplug is easy. All I want to do is use my Jumbo Spot and my Ailunce HD1 at home. We don’t have any digital repeaters in our area so there is no need to program frequencies in for those. There are no zones and no RX group lists. Just priority contacts (talkgroups), my address book and a few simple channels. For the hotspot, have a look at my previous article: Digital Mobile Radio DMR MMDVM Hotspot Jumbo Spot
What is a Codeplug?
Simply, the codeplug is your radio’s programming file. It contains channels with frequencies and options. Also, RX group lists, zones and other settings if necessary.
The DMR radios that I’ve seen also save address books. These are files that contain Amateur Radio operators name, callsign and QTH. This is a huge benefit because this information can be displayed on the front of the radio when listening to a station.
Ailunce HD1 Codeplug
If you are like me and just want to use your HD1 with a Jumbo Spot (or any hotspot) this is the easiest codeplug you’ll ever find. It’s so easy I was really surprised because I saw so much information out there on RX groups lists and zones. There’s no need for it. Just the basic setup and some channels with Talkgroups. It’s that simple!
Talk world-wide with this simple station!

Getting Started Basics with a Ailunce HD1 Codeplug
- Go to the Ailunce website and download the HD1 software. The HD1 comes with a nice cable and I did not need the USB driver, but there is one there if you need it. There is also updated firmware if needed. I’ll put a link below on how to update firmware.
- If you’ve been following this project of mine you’ll already have a DMR ID, but if you don’t have one you can get one HERE. It goes in the Basic Settings shown above.
- You’ll want to download an address book. I got mine HERE.
- Then you’ll need some Talkgroups (priority contacts). Those can be found at the BrandMeister Talkgroup List. See the above screen shots.
So it’s this simple. Have a look at the video because it includes everything you need.
