AnyTone AT-D878UV PLUS is a GREAT Radio - Review by Phil W

There are other features that are very much like programming a $7k Motorola commercial radio....

I happened to buy a Yaesu FT3DR around the same time I bought the 878, so I've done a lot of comparisons between them. IMO, the 878 is a much better radio in spite of being less than half the price.....

I'm completely happy with my 878. It feels good in my hand, and the audio quality is excellent....

AnyTone Accessories Review with Bob, from K6UDA Radio

Guys, this time we're gonna take another look at the AnyTone 878PLUS. 

So far, very impressed with the radio. 

I have been playing with it now for about a week and I've decided because I don't want to do a half hour, 45 minute video on doing an entire review on this thing, I am breaking this up into three parts. 

Today I am going through all these accessories this time on K6UDA Radio.

Is The AnyTone 878 PLUS a Good First Radio? By Ham Radio Crash Course

Without further ado, let's get into it. 

The AnyTone AT-878UV PLUS. One of the questions was, would I pick this for a new technician? Possibly a first radio. Normally I would say no, I wouldn't recommend this for a new technician. I don't think DMR is the place for a brand new radio technician. Right? Our first radio. This is the fence rider. This is the...

Menu Guide to the AnyTone 878 PLUS by HamRadioConcepts

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

All right, so let's look at the radio a little bit more and see just some of the functions that are in the menu. Is this thing in Chinglish, like all the other DMR radios you used, is it impossible to figure out what each thing means? Well, let's find out. So if I go into Menu, okay? Main menu, it's a little icons here, so you have talk group, SMS, Call Log, your Zone, Scan, Roaming, Settings, Record, I guess you can record QSO? GPS, Digital Monitor, Bluetooth. Okay? That seems pretty easy.

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.
