The new AnyTone AT-D868UV Dual Band DMR and Analog transceiver will be released to the US market end of May 2017. This is an advanced one chip radio complying with the MOTOTRBO Tier I and II specifications and offering 4 inherent power levels of 6W/2.5W/1W/0.5W. The frequency bands include both 136—174 MHz and 400—480 MHz.
The radio will auto-sense digital or analog transmissions and connect accordingly. It offers 2,000 channels as well as VFO tuning and for DMR operation offers 2 channels per frequency. The new radio includes a 1.77 inch TFT color LCD display which allows ease of seeing the many operating modes including icons for a successful connection to a repeater as well as the caller ID and name etc. The bandwidth is 12.5k/25k for Analog, and 12.5k for digital DMR operation.
GPS, man down, voice recording, and shock sensing are optional features. Firmware can be user updated. All typical CTCSS/DCS, and DTMF/2TONE/5TONE encode and decode features are also included with the radio. The digital part of the radio allows SMS texting functions via the keyboard. One battery option is offered in addition to the standard 2,100 mAh Li-ion battery: a 3,300 mAh polymer film battery option.
In addition to the Dual Band AT-D868UV radio, AnyTone will also introduce its new Single Band AnyTone AT-D868S radio with the same technical data except the power level will be 10W/5W/2.5W/1W. Both radios will be FCC approved and supported with an enhanced software programming package. Several additional AnyTone radios, including two mobile 60W/50Watts Analog/ Digital DMR radios are planned for release later in 2017.
The new Dual Band ATD5888 may be worth waiting for as it will offer the same enhanced features as the portable radios above. DMR repeaters are also being developed by AnyTone.
