I'm afraid I can't help with software, but DAPNET sounds fun, I didn't know it existed! I hope you manage to find the software.

Dapnet paging not used so much in the UK as a NOV is required to pass other people's messages. I suppose you could carry a personal hotspot around, tethered to your cell phone, to transmit the messages addressed to your DMR ID (or that prtion of it that is used for the pager RIC).

There was a DAPNET mailing list (wasn't in English) and the chaps there would likley be a source for the programming software (though I imagine most people are using the alphapoc clones or other more recent cheap pagers).
The multitone units used to be much better quality but idiotic prices!

I don't know if this helps at all. You have probably already found this.
