“Last fall I got diagnosed with bulbar onset ALS. So I am trying to do as much with my kids as I can. The old micor repeater we had was damaged by lightening that came in on the AC mains through the power supply. So that's why we got the BridgeCom repeater."
I purchased this Mic for my Kenwood Tri-Band HT. It works great. The Mic has a good weight to it and the swivel-clip is strong and locks into your desired position. The Mic's coiled cord is a good length where you do not feel restricted. The sound quality is great as opposed to some other mics that I've heard. I am very pleased with this purchase. I have not used it in the rain yet but I'm confident that it will work fine based on the quality of this product. This was my first purchase from BridgeCom and I will not hesitate to purchase other items in the future.
Took the repeater out of the box and was surprised at the quality of the construction. Took no time to put it on the air. The reception and transmitter are great. Better than we expected. A great piece of equipment.
I received my first DMR radio from BridgeCom. It is the anytone at-d868uv. I had trouble getting the radio to take the complete code plug. The technical assistance that I received from Chuck was way above my expectations! He got things corrected and the radio is working as it should. I would not hesitate to buy anything that I needed from BridgeCom because of their technical assistance.
Overall, this is the best handheld transceiver I've used. Features and functions are great - this radio has plenty of flexibility. My only issue has been the steep learning curve for the programming software. It would be nice to have a well written manual on setting up channels, zones, etc. It took me several hours to figure out how to add some analog channels and set them up so that I could select them (assigning the channels to zones. Most of the time it took me is related to not having used a DMR radio before. Thanks to BYRG for having set up the initial code plugs - that saved me a huge amount of time and got me on the air within a day.
