In other words, the DG-77 Dual band DMR portable radio "appears" to be a real upcoming product from Radioddity that is not for sale yet. Like most people, I will reserve judgement until it is actually for sale and it's operation has been reviewed by several people.

Default Dual band DMR

On another forum, Jerry at Connect Systems announced the strong possibility that he will introduce an improved version of the Anytone AT-D868UV UHF and VHF DMR radio. While not perfect, he has produced results that are reasonably priced, work as expected, good quality, and supported. I will wait and see what he offers before trusting Tytera or Radioddity.

Hopefully this is the solution for affordable, reliable DMR radios.

One thing the website says is that changing DMR to Analog requires software and a computer. I wonder if this means to input different digital and analog freqs or if the whole radio is locked digital or analog one mode at a time.

According to several early videos, the radio works in both modes:

The description mentions a "Point to Point repeater function". I wonder if that is a single-frequency repeater where the input and output are on the same frequency, but on opposite timeslots so that no duplexer or special filtering is needed because the radio is not ever transmitting and receiving at the same time.

This is most likely the Chinese understanding of DCDM (Dual-Capacity Direct mode) - two radios in direct mode on one frequency...

Default GD-77 CPS bug

I got one of these today. Noticed a looming bug in the CPS software. I setup a test FM repeater pair using PL tones both TX and RX. I saved the file after writing to the radio. Tested the radio, could not key the FM repeater (it's line of sight from me).

Opened the codeplug in CPS and noticed it borked the CTCSS values. Says RX CTCSS is 17.7 and TX CTCSS is None.

Anyone else seeing this?

What version is your software? I have v1.1.2 and it seems to keep the PL tone I've selected. I'll find out tomorrow when I get the new radio whether that will survive being loaded into the radio!

The CTCSS bug is still in the v1.1.2 analog channel settings. DCS works but not CTCSS/PL.

FYI - VPS Version 1.1.4 is out via Facegroup Page (not yet posted on-line). Testing it now.

If someone could post on facebook for me:

Ability to sort up/down Contacts, RX Groups, Zones, Channels, and Scan Groups. Helps me order items for the CODE PLUG.
