    -----------------------------------

    I've been wanting to do a comparison video for a while between the TYT MD2017 and the Retevis RT-82 dual band DMR HTs, which are essentially the same radio. They both take the same CPS, cable and codeplug, but there are minor hardware differences between them.

    Also, I had the privilege to debut the newest version of the TyToolz from KG5RKI for the dual band DMR HTs.

    The Winner of the BridgeCom BCH-270 handheld radio from Episode 113 is also announced.

    You do understand that is the same radio make by the same factory. There is no difference in the radios. Useless comparison and a waste of 35 minutes of your life and 30 seconds of mine.

    The firmware is different. The differences are slight. That was pointed out by the author. Knock off this nose-in-the-air stuff, willya Clem. We're supposed to be a fraternity.
