Please keep this DMR radio and your hotspot away from C4FM reflectors.....
And.... you guessed it, an affiliate link in the description below. Too bad we can't see the YouTube description while watching through qrz forum page.
If you click on the video, we all lose. It encourages the making of more 'content' (substitute your own word).
I'm new on this site....are you guys all dogs? can dogs be licensed?, can cats?
No, it is pronounced “Radio-Ditty”
This radio comes from China.
Avoid it like the plague.
Considering this is just a dual band, analog radio I think you're reflector is safe. For the low IQ crowd it's not DMR.
Some of these Yaesu radios that have come out over the past few years are pieces of junk as well
I bought one for myself for Christmas. The battery life is a little short but the USB charge is handy. I like the color display. This is a solid feeling radio with good ergonomics. Signal reports are good on our local repeater. The bluetooth programming was challenging but using the keypad was pretty easy. I did not watch this guys video so no opinion there. But, I like the radio and would encourage everyone to form their opinions on their experience rather than just the usual generalizations.
I do like the fact you used a camera tripod, quality camera, and bright lighting...most you tubers turn off the lights while holding a phone on record in their mouth.
I have to say I also agree with some of those above, pretty light on content. I realize we are all a bit different in what we like, but shouldn't any video on a radio include testing the radios performance? BT is cool and all, but does little good if the battery lasts 3 hours max and it has a worse front end that a Baofeng. Or maybe title the video as an unboxing type deal.
