Adding a channel to your codeplug
Go to the channel section of your codeplug and scroll to the bottom and add the new channel to it by clicking on the blank line and then entering the needed information to cause it to be usable such as the rx frequency, the tx frequency, that it is digital, the color code for the repeater or hotspot, the time slot and the talk group name you want to access. Now go to the zones section and add the channel to the zone or zones you want it in. You have now added all the information necessary to be able to access the new channel from a zone or zones on your radio.
Write the new codeplug to the radio and check it out. If all went well and you can access the new channel and talkgroup you entered save the new codeplug file to your computer as your new codeplug.
