Initial thoughts on the AnyTone 878 PLUS by Bob, K6UDA.

This time on K6UDA radio. This one comes from BridgeCom. The AnyTone 878 with uh... It's a DMR radio with built-in GPS. I've got the radio configured with a belt clip on it, the battery on there.

But hey, again, 3100 milliamp battery, this thing's going to last all day long, so I've got no --- about that. When I first did turn this thing on, it did go into a memory mode.
