Just a week ago I bought a Hytera PD785G DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) handheld transceiver. Now I’m spending my free time reading about DMR, experimenting with the Hytera CPS software, and writing about DMR to my radio club’s webpage.
DMR works way beyond my expectations compared to analog radio. I can communicate on locations where my analog Yaesu VX8G can’t, and the DMR repeater’s antenna is about 100 meters lower than the analog repeater’s. Sending and receiving text messages is very fun, and I like the compressed voice of DMR’s AMBE+2 codec very much.
