First DMR radio. Excellent performance, easy to use. Programming is different from ham radio, but with videos and codeplug downloads it is a no brainer to experience the future of ham radio. Programming cable is a perfect free addition. Don’t delay, order yours today!
The programming software is a little clunky with obvious english translation mistakes and severely lacking in documentation, but it gets the job done and there are plenty of videos online to assist. Other than that, fantastic radio for the price!
First DMR radio. Great reports from all DMR contacts.
I have found no faults with this radio great for my desk.
I am having a hard time programing this radio. I'm new to DMR. I hope to use it in my area, but the repeater close to me is closed. I have looked at many you tube videos. They just go way too fast. I will try.
Great radios. Purchased for work. Job does not have Cell coverage.working great a little hard to program
This product is very good for the price. We use them for our Alabama Storm Chasers Team. Privacy is what we needed and buytwowayradios had what we needed..... Excellent people to buy from.... We ordered 3 to try and they are very very good for the price. We are looking to several more in the next few months as we move over from analog to turbo dmr. Perfect radio perfect website to buy from.. A plus all the way around.
Would buy again they ship really fast
This radio has features that would cost 2 to 3 times it's price. If you want to get in to DMR and talk digital local or worldwide - BUY THIS RADIO.
Abslutely outstanding company and people to sreak with
Radio easily compares to better known players. Excellent performer. Can be made user friendly.
Use as scanner only.
Good radio for fire service and ham radio
Good radio, well worth the money.
Use in and out of uniform for amateur and public safety DMR radio
The UHF version will allow you to install MD380TOOLS however the VHF version does not have enough internal memory to perform such
Good price, rugged, ergonomic, clear audio
I am using on both analog and digital systems with little or no difference with the performance
WAY more than I expected! You can't beat this radio for the price.
I wanted to try DMR radio, this little gem gets you there for a 1/7 of what a Motorola would cost. Ordered the mobile at the same time, received a call telling me the anticipated delay... great company!!!
Great Receiver, Works fine out of the Charlotte Area.
LOOK FORWARD TO GETTINGBACK ON THE AIR AND NOT DEAL WITH THE 2 METER ABUSE
I purchased this radio several months ago, when it came to down load the software it triggered a virus alert. I was told to turn off my antivirus and then download the software. Big mistake. After a dozen attempts to download, no help from the vendor, the radio sits on my shelf, unable to use it do to bad software. Save your money and buy a Motorola.
YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR THINKING IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE PROGRAMING. HAD I THOUGHT ABOUT IT, I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT THE SPEAKER MIC WITH THE RADIO
Being a first time DMR user, this rig is outstanding! Easy to learn and easy to use! Worked a OM in Switzerland within 5 minutes of installing the battery.
I'm still learning how to use it.
The radio programming, for digital use, is not terribly easy. Although pre made templates are available. If you watch a few you tube videos, programming will be much easier and make sense.
works so good I pur a 2ed
Amazed at being able to communicate with people around the world, loud and clear, with a handheld radio at a very reasonable price.
Love It and thanks look forward to my next radio
Light weight and easy to read, had no trouble programming, just downloaded a code plug from DMR-MARC and used the TYT software to install it.
Gateway to DMR...I was very impressed with this little radio...Very good radio at a good price...if you want to try DMR this is a good starting point for a bit over $US100...Programing is not easy for me....however I do have a Friend/Amateur Radio Operator who lives in my neighborhood that programed the Tytera with his PC and its full ...all 999 Memories..Have fun and Enjoy Life.
The radio works as it should. It's not a high priced radio so one should not expect a lot. The MD 380 is good buy
Super DMR radio.
Fine little radio, have not run into any cons so far. A lot of my radio buddy's have purchased this radio!
These radios are great. I was a little skeptical of them but decided to go ahead and get one. I am very interested in the DMR system and also use the analog system regularly. This is the easiest and cheapest way to get into DMR. I am planning on getting at least 2 more before it's all said and done
Use on my DMR repeaters in NC and VA
Trying to get on DMR. Finding it difficult to program the radio
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.
very pleased with radio
Great for doing Hytera with the DV4Mini and Mototurbo over local DMR repeaters.
world wide comm.
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!!!
Just getting into DMR and enjoying it so far.
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.
for the money you cannot beat this little dmr ht--hey there are many guys on the air today using them and that is the reason I got into dmr because of the reasonable price and good quality--they sound great too--No its not a Motorola but why pay for the name when you can have a nice little unit for a lot less money
Highly recommend this little radio for DMR use.
Perfect transition radio as we retool to a digital future.
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.
None at this time
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.
Excellent value in a DMR radio. Great features at the price point. Well built but not without some minor faults. The programming is difficult if you are not familiar with professional LMR radio programming. There is a high degree of complexity and interaction between program parameters. Once you get past the learning curve, you'll like this radio
Use only in amateur radio
Radio is good for amateur radio use only. The radio is made quite cheaply and yes you get what you pay for. It does decode tiers 1 and 2 well however the radio has a mind of its own. It's CPU is wonky to say the least. Very poor design with much misspelling on words in the CPU. Definitely tell even low end for a chinese made radio. Worst I personally have ever seen. Still it does what it it's suppose to do with just a lot of head-ache errors that's all.
Well build radio, inexpensive way to get on DMR
i have this radio for about a week and i really enjoy the radio clean audio in digital and i found a improvement in analog fm as well and i compared the radio with motorola xpr-4550 and found there is no difference in audio what so ever well worth the price
I programmed two of these radios for a couple of friends and I was impressed with the great performance of them.Display is very bright, RX and TX audio is loud, software need to be improved for adding zones down to the side keys.Radio locks on when a channel is been used not leting enter the menu u less channel selector be moved.
The service was excellent and we tested this radio against three other DMR/UHF radios. The Tytera MD 380 surpassed the others and I would highly recommend it. Thanks to Gary KA9ZYL for Beta testing these radios for us.
Works great. Again it works great, Buy one.Service is good as well. Thanks KB9MVW
Bought to run on an Amateur Radio DMR network. Primary use for local emergency work. Ease of use and easy to program.
I have loved the radio. A little challenging to program but I'm new to DMR. After I got the radio program it has worked flawlessly. I would recommend this radio to anyone starting out in DMR.
