I am trying to decide between buying a FUSION, DMR, or DSTAR mobile radio. I'm considering the Anytone 578 (DMR), and the Yaesu FT300DR (Fusion), and haven't completed research on DSTAR options. The Anytone 578 has VHF/UHF and 220 Mhz (DMR), the Yaesu does not, only Digital VHF/UHF (FUSHION). Repeaters on 220 Mhz are becoming less prolific, and some believe they're on the way out in the USA, with some of the band width being skimmed-off by the FCC to other services. It's said that manufacturers are opting to manufacture a lesser number of radios with 220 Mhz because of the band's waning popularity. Plus, the 220Mhz band included would mean that if you're going to use the 220Mhz band, then you would also need a tri-band antenna. So, while the Anytone 578 has the band width advantage, as well as a stellar reputation for performance, I'm leaning toward the Yaesu FT300DR, simply because the 220 band isn't that desireable to have. And, I've been a Yaesu guy for 35 years, and their quality/performance has consistently also been outstanding. Plus, the FUSHION system is said to be the easiest to program when comparing DMR, DSTAR, and FUSHION programming. Of the two repeaters in my rural area, one is VHF Fusion, less than a mile from my house, and the other that is ten miles away is UHF and multiple mode capable, DMR, DSTAR, and FUSION. I also have a Yaesu FT3R (Fusion), and could take it along when traveling, and easily access all the Fusion Repeaters while traveling in urban areas. If you have a cheapy with you that's DMR capable (Baofeng, TYT, etc...), then just use it to access DMR or DSTAR repeaters, if need be, and the Baofengs are easy to program with CHIRP open source software. The way I see it, the real remedy is to take along the Shark OpenSpot 3 when traveling, and that seems to totally level the playing field so you can access any and all of the digital modes through your cell phone's internet connection. And, the Shark Open Spot 3 can just as easily be employed on your home turf as well. Of course, the hot spot option assumes that cost is no option, especially with the Shark Open Spot 3 ($300.00). Now, these are all assumptions on my part because I'm just getting started, and trying to uderstand the options. Do I understand the options about right, and which would you buy, the Anytone 578 or the Yaesu FT300DR?
