    With a VFO, not so many memory channels are necessary. As for the contact IDs, I personally only store those of people I know. This radio sounds ideal for me. What I need to know now are where I can get it and what it will cost me.

    The topic of this article title picture shows a Mobil anytone?
    Good review on this HT covered.
    Let's see more about that cause more RF is what we need to advoid audio pixalating chop out. The Md2017 is a great looking radio but we await dualbander dmr 40/50 watt radios .

    Any word on when these radios will be available? I was thinking of picking up a MD-2017, but after seeing this radio, I may be swayed into buying the AnyTone instead.

    Do you have all ten billion world wide phone numbers in the contact list on your cell phone? If not, how can you tell who you are talking to on the phone?

    The notion that we need to have every single ham worldwide who has ever requested a DMR ID number stored in each radio is nonsense that sounds logical only to new hams.

    The first shipment of the radios is on its way to me. Contact me for more info on availability.

    I recently came across a pre-release version as well. They did increase the contact storage to the 150K range but other than that I have not played with it much due to work.
    I think the only other point of contention for some is these radios have the serial chip (for programming) built in, so while the programming cable LOOKS like the same Kenwood/Baofeng style cable, those other programming cables will not work due to the chip (Prolific/FTDI) in the cord instead of the radios.

    I have both, I definitely like this AnyTone better, and the programming software for the AnyTone is MUCH easier to use compared to the pain in the rear TYT CPS software.
    Plus there is a massive size difference, the MD-2017 is a monster compared to most other handhelds.

    I hope that AnyTone soon will issue all the related software and Programming Guide on their new website so all can have access to it. The Programming Guide definitely helps in understanding how to use the radio with all its features.

    Hi, where did you buy this radio? I can not find it at any sales site.+

    I use retevis rt82, trackball is not useful at all.
