I don't think you need an ID number from DMR-MARc just to listen.

You can certainly write up a code plug (at least for ham radio) for listening purposes only. You can also put one together and add you ID later. If you've got a ham radio license, I'd recommend getting an ID. There is no cost in obtaining one and are turnaround time is probably pretty close to instantaneous these days. (It's been a few years since I got my ID and it took a few days then.)

I applied at DMR-Marc. I believe that is the only place to apply for ham radio IDs. What area are you in? You may be able to find a codeplug for another radio and use a codeplug converter to convert one to your GM-77.

I got my ID from them last year. It took almost week. I don't know if they've improved any.

Not the only place. The other service is ham-digital.org.
I learned this from an interesting article at Brandmeister. https://news.brandmeister.network/
To register at ham-digital.org: https://register.ham-digital.org

I didn't know about ham-digital.org. I appreciate the info, thanks. Funny thing, although I've tried to keep my codeplug up to date with user IDs, I've noticed a lot of IDs starting with 1 that don't resolve to a name. The Brandmeister article explains it.

I may be wrong but I don't think it is an absolute requirement that you have an ID to transmit. As long as you have a ticket, you are transmitting on an amateur repeater just as you do in the analog mode. It is just for a convenience so the other users can "see" who you are.
Correct or no?

As far as I know you are correct Bob. If you're wanting to operate on systems like Dmr Marc they require an id for organization and identification and could technically not allow you to use the system without one. The other reason to have an id would be for some of the special features of dmr like private call or texting. Without a valid id it would be difficult for someone to text you. But it's not like a trunking system id that the radio needs just to listen on a system.

There are alot of Sys op's who wont let you on without one , and ultimately there equipment there rules, however if you dont have one you can listen on hoseline .
I also may be wrong on this but even on a hotspot you need to be able to key up to make the connection ,i haven't gotten around to fiddling with DMR yet ,still doing time in dstar/fusion ,i am pretty sure without an intial connection you won't hear a thing , but like I say you can listen in on hoseline from your phone or tablet with nothing.

Back in 2012 when I applied to DMR-MARC for my ID #'s, I received them in less than 10 minutes.

Neither do I. But the incoming e-mail with my new DMR ID #ís was timestamped 10 minutes after I sent the request.
