Hello everyone, welcome back. KJ4YZI HamRadioConcepts. And this is the AnyTone AT-D878UV PLUS.

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

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. It is, with the belt clip on, it is a little bit more thick in the hand than the other radios that I've used. 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. I was able to put it in a VFO mode and enter in a frequency from the keypad, which was a pleasant surprise. I've turned the radio on and I have it set up here on DMR to my openSPOT, Parrot.
