I purchased this radio with the programming cable and software recently. I was easily able to program it with the code plug provided by my local repeater. I also edited Channels Information to add 16 local analog repeaters, then added a new zone "analog" and made them a member of it. Now I can use it for DMR and analog modes.

Comments:

We use this for SKI Patrol Business - communicating with dispatch, emergencies, first aid, etc. Our mountain went digital and those of us who owned their own analog radio's could not reprogram them. The Tytera was our answer. Pricey, but works better than the new expensive mountain radio's. They produced an echo, the Tyters does not!!!

Great MOTOTRBO DMR. Downloaded the codeplug for the DMR network for my area of one of the local club websites, loaded it into the radio and was on the air in under 5 minutes. I will buy more radios from buytwowayradios in the future.

Comments:

I purchased 2 of these radios, one to get myself out of the Baofeng loop, I had gone through 2 Baofengs in 2 months, spending what I would have on one of these Tyteras. I use this for fire dispatch and communication. Before you ask, no I would not trust this in an interior fire, and that is why the department owns their own radios. I found the programming software to be easier to work with than CHIRP, and that program is pretty darn easy. This radio gets excellent range, during a radio test I was successfully able to ping our VHF repeater from about 30 miles away. YMMV. This could be due to weather conditions and all the other fun things that can cause a radio to one day have a spectacular range, and the next not to. I am using the short rubber duck antenna that came with it, it did include a whip, but I do not have a use for that right now, in my home, which is a manufactured home, so it has all the nice things built in that would interfere with a radio, I am able to get very clear reception on our main dispatch channel, and that signal is coming from about 15 miles away. This is an excellent radio, the reason I did not choose boating as a use is because I have not tested it in a boating situation, however if kept safe and out of the water I believe that it would work well.

Comments:

Nice radio, Hear numerous users in U.S. and Europe using radio on 70cm Amateur Band). User Manual is poor, (Chinese to English translation leaves much to be desired). Recommend you Purchase the Software and Programming Cable. If you need extra help, great YouTube Videos on the web will step you through the Software Programming.
