Alinco MD-5 - Which radio do I have

Modified on Thu, 21 Mar 2024 at 05:55 PM

Alinco has the DJ-MD5 DMR radio in several variations.  Unfortunately, they all are imprinted with DJ-MD5 on the face making it difficult to tell which model you have.  

Shown below are identifying information on each that we have and a reference to which of the RT Systems programmers works with that model.  

The original was the DJ-MD5 with this label under the battery (that is the only place to really tell which one you have).  This one carries DJ-MD5TGP on the label.   It uses the APK-MD5 programmer

Next was the DJ-XLT. It uses the APK-MD5X programmer


The current model is the DJ-XTG.  This one also uses the APK-MD5X programmer. 

Both of these programmers are included in the setup downloaded with the serial number that you have from an earlier purchase or that is issued for a new purchase.  Install the programmer that is correct for your model.  

Watch for this screen during installation.  Install one or both programmers. 

Hope this helps you get everything from the Alinco DMR radio you're using.
