DMR Stuff

My entry came via an MD-380 in 2016 which is good radio with good support and TyTools etc.
Currently I’m running the Anytone AT-868 dual band analog and DMR from Bridgecom Systems  who are just the best for support etc.
Also using Openshark RF and Zumspot hotspots as well as the RF repeaters.

Along the way in 2019 I tried a Retevis RT-52 which is also a very good radio but for me it didn’t pick up my soft voice enough to be usable. A great shame as it has just the best clear display. There is also no adjustment for this or service menus etc. I contacted Retevis direct to see. A fantastic radio to use as a scanner though…
See my programming /user database YouTube.

The Anytone AT-D868 for me has saved me carrying 3 different radios.
It is used for work frequencies, DMR and Ham repeaters.
I also use it for some scanning by adding the frequencies of interest into a zone.
And then use that zone and scan.

May 2019 update, now have AT-D878
