Retevis Dual-Band HTs

You can support the channel when purchasing a Retevis dualband HT or accessories. So far we have talked about the RA79, RA89 and HD1 DMR radio on the blog and channel. These are an budget friendly alternative to their Japanese couterparts, and excellent way to get started.

Retevis Ailunce HD1 DMR Ham Radio

The HD1 DMR radio with built-in GPS is fully DMR Tier I and Tier II compliant, has built-in APRS, Cross-band operation, 3000 channels 256 zones and up to 200000 contacts; support signal call group call and all call; IP67 waterproof allows us to use it in rain, snow or other harsh weather. The HD1 also supports charging over USB-C. This can be done from the radio, or via the charging dock.

These are affiliate links. The channel receives a small commission if you use these links to purchase your radio.

Retevis sent over their affiliate links for the HD2. Some of these links will bring commissions to the channel, without any cost to you.

Banner Sponsor

If you are a company wanting to support the website, a banner is the easiest way to do it.
Current banner for one year is $350 (29 August 2023). Banner support funds the blog, storage and bandwidth on the website. Use this link to send it over, then I’ll reply to the email you used to send it over with banner instructions. I can also make a banner for you if you don’t already have one. Then the only thing missing is the link you’d like the banner to point to. The banner will automatically dissapear one year from the publish date, but feel free to renew or update it.
I prefer banners from manufacturers have sent over gear for review.

The channel and blog are a 100% not-for-profit undertaking. It is also 100% viewer supported. This means no money is accepted for reviews. Any support coming in, is put right back in to the channel, blog, website hosting and/or used to support new content creation.
