Why are you banning radios?
I use the TYT MD380. Is that also banned?
What about the Radioddity RD-5R? Also banned?

Effectively, they are now banned from the entire network of ~30 repeaters.

For whatever it's worth, even the Rocky Mountain Ham Radio group have published on this problem, and expanded the list to include other similar radios with this issue:

The BaoFeng radios are being banned because the activate both time slots at the same time.

I am curious if the people using these radios actually know how to program them. There is an option in the CPS that has to be checked, and if it's not checked you will TX on both time slots.
