I purchased this antenna at the same time I bought my D868UV radio at the suggestion of the BridgeCom staff at Xenia. The stock antenna that came with the radio was not flexible and could have been subject to breakage. The Nagoya antenna offers flexibility and superior TX and RX performance as compared to the stock antenna. I am very pleased with my purchase.
Ordered my radio on Saturday to get the Father's day package. Received it on the following Wednesday. Great job getting it out, Bridgecom Folks considering the number of orders you had to deal with. Built my codeplug from scratch using the guide in the software. Was so close to my MD 380 codeplug that it was just a matter of typing. The user db was not as easy by thanks to John Miklor, it was a matter of using his link and importing it. I love this radio for its simplicity and ability to actually program without a computer (but the computer is nice). All my stuff arrived in good shape and as promised. Thinking that next time I get to Kansas City for a ballgame. I am going to stop in and shake some hands. I totally recommend this radio as not only a DMR handheld but also as an analog carry as well. PS, my wife is getting my MD 380 to carry. LolRead now
This is a great radio, I have had very many of the lower cost radios, all of them have their drawbacks, this one is my new favorite, it holds a huge codeplug and the entire DMR database. I had no trouble writing a code plug for it. You can import all of the components separately from.CSV files. Audio quality is top notch. The radio us a little heavier due to the 3100ma battery, but feels very good in your hands. The Nagoya antenna is a big plus also. I have programmed dmr repeaters and analog channels, and it has broadcast FM radio receive. Live this radio, it is my new go-to device.Read now
What a great radio, this has become my new favorite. I have had more than a few of the budget DMR radios, but this one ranks way up there for me. Programming was straight forward, the CPS software has the ability to pull in contacts, channels talk groups and much more from easy to edit CSV files.I have a very large code plug installed and it handles it nicely, I also have the local ARES frequencies loaded. Audio is very clear. The radio is a little heavier than some of the others that I have had, but it feels good in my hands, not "cheap". Added feature of FM broadcast monitoring and a 3100 ma battery is a nice touch. The special deal also includes a battery eliminator and a Nagoya antenna. Very Nice radio for a little more money than the budget versions out there. Highly recommend.Read now
Had a problem with the radio and Chuck took care of the exchange and shipped me out a new one within 3 business day after receiving the bad one back. I got the new radio all programmed with my code plug and demo it at the Club meeting the next Tuesday. Man do I love this radio and the excellent service that https://www.bridgecomsystems.com/ systems gives. they bend over backwards to make it rightRead now
