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  https://www.bridgecomsystems.com/  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
