Hi everyone, I'm Cody, W3AMG, from BridgeCom Systems. Today, we're going to be talking about ham radio prepping and specifically why the AnyTone 878 Plus is a perfect choice for any survivalist looking for their first radio. In this video, I'll take you through everything you can expect from your AnyTone 878 Plus and the key benefits in any survivalist or prepper situations.
So let's start off with reliability. The AnyTone 878 Plus DMR radio comes with up to seven watts of power for clear and long handheld transmissions, and a 3,100 mAh battery, so you can go for days without needing a power source. DMR transmissions are more energy-efficient, so your radio will last longer and DMR transmissions are easier for your radio to receive. They transmit further, and they sound better. Digital radio reception is more resistant to interference and eliminates many imperfections of analog radio transmissions and receptions. This ensures you are having clear communications.
This radio can be used on commercial bands with the correct licensing so you can talk to almost everyone. And most crucial, the AnyTone 878 Plus is dual band. This means you can use it on analog or DMR, UHF or VHF, and you can use it with almost all common frequencies. With this being a DMR radio, you might be concerned that it will need internet to work, but this isn't the case. As I said before, this radio also has analog capabilities. Regardless, a DMR radio can still work without internet.
The loud and clear speaker makes this radio super easy to hear in noisy environments or in the vehicle. On so many radios out there, the speaker is just not loud enough. This will go above everything else and you will be able to hear it. So we have the radio on max volume going to try out the parrot real quick. Testing one, two, three. This is W3AMG testing the volume on the AnyTone 878 Plus.
[Audio coming back from the Parrot on the radio]:
Testing one, two, three. This is W3AMG, testing the volume on the AnyTone 878 Plus.
Yeah so it will actually hurt your ears if you don't have it far away from you. This radio is also IP 57 water resistant. So even a little bit of water won't bother you.
Daniel, from a previous video:
Andrew was asking how durable is the housing for the 878 plus.
Sebastian, with Daniel:
I'm going to have a little bit of fun with that here actually. *Sebastian throws the AnyTone 878 Plus onto the concrete floor.*
But yeah, it's very durable this case, so he just threw it on the ground pretty hard there and it's all good.
Back to Cody:
This thing is hard to break or damage. Finally, let's talk about how user-friendly the AnyTone 878 Plus is.
