Is the AnyTone 878PLUS a Good First Radio? by Ham Radio Crash Course


– Without further ado, let’s get in to it. The AnyTone AT-878UV. (upbeat jazzy music) One of the question was would I pick this for a new technician, possibly a first radio? Normally I would say
no I wouldn’t recommend this for a new technician. I don’t think DMR is the place for a brand new radio technician right, or first radio. This is the fence rider. This is the radio that would be the fence rider for me. With the ability to program on the keypad which this does have and the ability for a less convoluted programming
software solution, I find that this could
be a first time radio. Now of course that individual should have a desire to get into DMR so this would probably be more for the newer technician but is
still a techie kind of person. But yeah this is a fence rider, this is the first time I can say that I’m unsure on whether I
would say yes new technician go try this which speaks
volumes about this radio. You guys know I’m fairly hard
on DMR for its programming, not the radios necessarily
but the programming, and when the features all come together and the software works out well, I don’t have a problem supporting it and this is an example of that confluence. (upbeat music)
