Point and click? I guess I'm missing something. I watched one video, that was enough I think. 73, n9zas

A $50 Android phone is a POS. This rune bow phone is high-quality extremely rugged phone for H to use. It has all the features of a high quality top-notch android phone. They're also not HTs. And neither is the iPhone or Samsung galaxy. They don't have DMR radios in them.

This conversation has morphed into a discussion of RFinder's data collection practices and a comparison between RFinder and RepeaterBook. Admittedly, I contributed to that diversion from the original topic.

Let's get back on topic of this Runbo/RFinder/Android radio. Maybe the discussion of various online repeater lists goes in another thread.

I might be more interested in this if it were dual-band capable. I note that they have (had?) a VHF Analog only version available.

Of course it's all rather academic at this juncture since they are all "out of stock"...

Oh well, that's your opinion lol. I stand by my Moto G and have a Cs700 as well, so $800 for that thing is unreasonable. . 73, n9zas

To get back on topic, I tried to find reviews to read on the Runbo radio but found none, so decided not to consider it. 73, n9zas

Would be great if they made an app that uses PTT to access DMR+ and DStar Reflectors via gateway in case there's no Repeaters around. Kind of a virtual DV4Mini or DVAP.

Hopefully not as horrid as the DV4mini!
More like a front-end for a MMDVMHost software daemon running in the background.
Hmmm...has anyone even looked at porting MMDVMHost to Android?

A friend was asking about this and I found the 2016 thread

Now they do have a Dual Band

A local guy has one of these. While the idea is novel, his tx audio is always cutting in, & out. He actually goes to ham fests with the owner, helping him to sell the product, but whether he is in NY, or S.Florida, his TX audio is very choppy, & hard to listen to. I wish there was some kind of FW update to correct this.

I think you should look a little closer. You can get it in VHF or UHF, but not both. This is not a dual-band.

Thanks, my buddy thought it was dual-band and I never looked closely as I was not interested
