    Agree. I had this radio and its absolute nightmare. Its not even in the ball park of being user friendly. To me after trying to use it and waiting so long with very little updates that were coming out for the radio to improve it i consider this radio a failure. It has a extremely long way to go. The Anytone AT-D868UV Runs 10 circles to this radios 1.

    If you have any problems with the radio, you can contact the seller, I think they can solve for you.

    Anyway, thanks for your attention. I think Ailunce will make it better and better. And if you have any function suggestion, welcome at any time. Thanks. Good day to you.

    HD1 has 3 modes

    Gifted mode - someone buys you radio for a gift and you try it and set it aside

    last option mode - no other radio available to use and had to resort to this one

    trash mode - Realized last option mode was not a good choice and threw radio away

    I have this radio. For perspective I have these HTs. Kenwood TH-d74, A few Beofengs, and the HD-1. The HD-1 I purchase on Amazon. This is a GREAT radio. I use it more than the TH-d74. It is my go-to radio. It is more intuitive than the TH-d74. It has better power. It is easy to program. The support has been great when there have been issues. The Retevis team is working very hard to support its product. They reach out immediately on their FB forum or via request on their page.

    The Kenwood is still locked in menus and UI from 20+ years ago. It is a great radio too, but it cost $500+. It could have embraced DMR and be an outstanding radio. But in reality D-star is great on 5W only if you are with a hotspot or next to the repeater.

    Again the Kenwood and Ailunce are great radios with great tech. The HD-1 is my go-to and is the case for many out there. From the outside, Retevis is pushing HAM tech into a great direction.

    LOL,most that are here complaining have never even touched one of these HT's yet they must say something negative? I like the Ailunce HD1 & it does very well on DMR & Analog & there is a Facebook group that is very helpful with any issues with the radio & usually quickly.Just did the firmware update last night & it works great.For the $150 shipped I paid for it I think it was a STEAL & it does things my ICOM & Baofeng HT's only dream of & it does it with ease.Like N8GM said above,Retevis has done a great job with support & updates & they are customer/user friendly.
