    I am one of the companies working with AntTone to develop this radio. Yes I have several for sale after a factory firmware update coming next week. The ones I have include GPS and the large 3.3 A battery and sell for $200 shipped with all the software and Programming Guide

    I have been working with AnyTone to develop this radio. We are waiting for 1 more firmware update before selling the radio as it has a small quirk left. Once that has been fixed I can ship them to you - they include GPS and the large battery and ship for $200. Also Include Programming Guide document

    You don't have to as Caller ID will show you the name already, unless it's blocked.

    With a digital transport this additional info could be embedded in the payload perhaps, but as it stands now it's nice to see "Mike" on the screen and not have to remember a name. I find it a useful feature.

    Dear AT-D868UV users - or you that may consider this radio,

    As I have been working with AnyTone to develop this Analog and Digital DMR UHF and VHF radio D868UV, I have also recognized that a Programming Guide explaining all the features and options may be helpful for us Amateurs wanting the understand everything about their best DMR radio. This document will also be published on the AnyTone website when they add all the D868UV software there - around mid October. Any recommendations for updates and/or clarifications please let me know.

    A heads up - AnyTone will release 2 mobile radios similar to their hand-held AT-D868UV. One later this year (25W), and the other next year (50W with removable front).

    For you that think this is a clone or copy or junk - I can tell you that I have personally visited AnyTone and seen their facility where they also build other "US" major label radios . They have had 8 engineers designing this radio, and they are very proud of what they have been able to accomplish in such a small compact radio.

    Which other brands do they build?

    I am sorry - that is company proprietary! But as I have seen it, I can vouch for one of the best production facilities I have seen for radios ( and have seen several).

    Just picked up on this post/thread in the UK.
    My 3-yr-old CS700 is beginning to show it's age so looking for a replacement.
    What's the low-down on getting one/some shipped over.
    Or is there a UK stockist in the pipe-line

    I will be at AnyTone next week and will ask them who sells their radios in the UK.

    True Tone issued a press release in February of this year that the radio would be out in May. Well, I was at Dayton and ready to buy it but it was not to
    be seen. I waited several more months and then bought the TYT MD2017. That radio has turned out to be a very good radio. This radio
    will store 100,00 contacts which is not that important to me. It's been reliable, selling now for a little under $200. I really like
    the ability to switch between DMR on UHF and analog on VHF.
