Another toy

A new dual band DMR handheld was being advertised at $86.99 from Radioddity.  I was a bit sceptical at first and thought it might have turned out like the Baofeng DMR HT in not being Tier II compatible.  But initial reports were ok so I took the small plunge (as it cost less than €75 delivered).  It works pretty well although the CPS software is in need of a bit of work.  RF performance is fine although it really does need adjustable squelch levels on analog and picks up too much intermod.  The small screen and inability to load the dmr database are also negative points.  But for the money it is a capable dual band set.
