I can't seem to find any pricing at all on the Hytera PDC760. This is a really neat looking radio that looks to be feature packed by being able to do cellular, analog, and DMR.

I’ll be watching this. Checks quite a few boxes for me, and would keep me from having to tote around extra hardware. Waiting to see the final price point.

Agreed, I too am very tired carrying around a cell and DMR while on-site with clients. This will be a unified solution for many problems. One thing to remember that Hytera has done that a lot of the other Chinese manufacturers have not, PDC760 supports 4W RF out on the UHF band while all others (so far) are only 2W. This is most likely to meet FCC certs for low power (2W max.) UHF operation without a license (i.e., LP business band/splinter freqs. pool). . .

I'll have to wait and see what is handed down to me, concerning the pricing on this unit. I'll keep you guys posted . . . Hytera will only allow MSRP's to be displayed on Internet, whereas, I can set my own pricing from inquiries through my website ;) (URL, see above)

There are no UHF channels in the US that are license free other than GMRS. And that requires a 1/2 Watt radio with a fixed (non-removable) antenna. There are a few license free channels in VHF for low power use, but none in UHF.

I think you are trying to say that FRS Part 95 Subpart B is 'license free', which it is. FRS users are limited to 500mW (1/2W) and is NOT GMRS, though the band is shared. Those using GMRS are required to possess a license under Part 95 Subpart A (which I believe is now, $95/10 years) and are allowed a maximum power of 50W (which is channel specific).

I think you missed the rules change last year. FRS is now limited to 2 watts except on Channels 8-14 (1/2 watt, same as GMRS).
