    Nice presentation Jason.
    Could you do a little bit about comparing the 868 and the 2017 side by side, comparing features and problems. I am on the fence about which one to get, but am leaning toward the 868 simply because of smaller size. Any thoughts would certainly help. Thanks '73 Jeff, WB1DPS

    I had that idea for another video. This one, I wanted to commit the entire episode to the Anytone, but I do think a comparison video is a good idea.

    I received my AT-868UV but if I don't get a code plug soon, you might see it in the classified section! Any chance somebody has one for the eastern or southeastern US?

    Doubtful since they are brand new. Try and build one that can be shared around.

    The creator of the Contact Manager is working on adding the AT D868UV to the program allowing to convert Codeplugs between different radios. Do a search and monitor when this program will be ready for the D868UV
