Top 3 Newest Features on the AnyTone 878UVII Plus

Top 3 Newest Features on the AnyTone 878UVII Plus

Voice Record

A best practice we recommend to Hams involved in amateur radio is keeping a call log. This allows you to easily go back and see who you made contact with, plus that log will help you send a QSL card after the QSO. Unfortunately, this can often be difficult to do on the fly and even more difficult when it’s hard to hear who you’re transmitting with. Luckily, with the 878UVII Plus’ voice record function, you no longer need to keep a log in real-time. With this new feature, the voice recorder allows you to record for up to 14 hours of transmission time. The 14 recorded hours will save the DMR ID of users during the transmission as well as the time it took place. Overall, this makes keeping a call log much easier to manage and will ensure you won’t have any issues writing your QSL card.

Contact Storage

If you don’t already know, DMR is one of the fastest-growing modes in amateur radio. According to, we’re less than 4,000 DMR IDs away from eclipsing the 200,000 mark. This is a huge accomplishment for the DMR community, but it also means you’ll need a radio with enough space to store all those contacts. Fortunately, the AnyTone 878UVII Plus was built with a storage capacity of 500,000 DMR contacts. This capacity will allow you to set your contact storage worries aside and enjoy the freedom of knowing you’ll have plenty of space or years to come.


Before the AnyTone 878UVII Plus, you weren’t able to receive analog APRS on an AnyTone radio. If you’re less familiar with this part of the hobby, APRS stands for Automatic Packet Reporting System and is used to send data packets. AnyTone DMR radios previously could only use this system to transmit your data which can include your callsign, and location, but you could never see anyone else’s data. With the new 878UVII Plus, you can finally receive that data to your radio. Now some of you might be thinking “why would I even want to use APRS on my radio?” For you Hams involved in backpacking, camping or hiking, APRS will help ensure others can find your location with pinpoint accuracy. So if there ever comes a time when you get lost, you’ll be able to send and receive key GPS data to get you to safety. However, APRS is mostly just a fun way to see where other Hams are traveling and where they are making contacts.

Bonus Round: BridgeCom University

If you’ve been nervous about getting into DMR radio, you can end your worries right now. We know this mode of radio can feel intimidating. However, with our 17 years of experience in the hobby and dedicated support team, we’ve put together a course to assure you enjoy your radio. It’s called BridgeCom University. With your course comes an array of simple how-to videos, in-depth tutorials. Plus, when you complete the course, you’ll get a BridgeCom certification for mastering your radio. The best part is, you get this course free with your radio.

I ordered an 878UVII Plus as I understand it takes full advantage of APRS. I use a D72A to track amateur rockets via APRS. Wonder if the 878UVII Plus might be able to step in here.
If not, that’s o.k. with me as I’d like another APRS rig that doesn’t have Kenwood on the label.
The D72A has a digital out port so I can interface it to a Garmin 60 Cs or CsX so I could track a rocket flight in real time with an APRS tracker and enhance the rockets recovery.
Have no fear. We rocket guys aren’t nefarious. We go to isolated places and get F.A.A. flight waivers to a given altitude to fly our rockets. The F.A.A. issues a notice to airmen that we’re flying rockets to such and such altitude at such and such time so it is all legal.
We have parachute recovery systems installed to hopefully get the rockets back and fly again.
I’ll keep you posted once I get the rig. Kurt Savegnago
