Best radio to transition to Dmr and have a dual mode HT at hand.

Excellent radio, not only dual band ( programable) but dual mode. Perfect transition from analog system to the digital world. Code plugs are available online and easy to customize. Price and accessories make it a no brainer for any ham looking for a do it all handy talkie.

i love this radio it is well built feels good in ...

i love this radio it is well built feels good in the hand the screen is awesome nice a bright it works great no issues at all. my friend bought one and i messed with his and had to have one for myself right away. they are a awesome company and go out of there way to make sure you are happy with the whole shopping and product experince. if your looking for a great radio this is it hands down.

Great handheld

Definitely a great product does what it says easy to program all you have to do is follow the directions. Definitely a quality build doesn’t feel cheap. Make sure you download the program software on any windows computer and it is pretty self-explanatory

Great Radio!

Received product on time even after I initially was given wrong tracking number. Radio is great, works excellent and you just need to get used to tracking ball, is not a deal breaker for me. Retevis products and service are great, speaking from my own experience, and this is a great addition to my collection!

The ham radio is a very good DMR radio

The ham radio is a very good DMR radio. It stands up to the rating that it states with IP67 waterproof and dust-proof and it is a very good radio for DMR Ham radio operators that won’t to be mobile.

Great next step DMR Radio.

When I say next step it's great to finally have a dual band DMR radio. So far this radio has performed flawlessly. The support from Retevis has also been outstanding, I haven't had any issues with the radio so far but they have called me and emailed to make sure I didn't have any questions ont setup or use of the radio. My only complaint on it is the navigation ball. I would of liked to have seen a 4 way d pad.

that it was easy to load contacts

I just gave my husband this radio as a gift. He says he loves it, that it was easy to load contacts. I will let you know more as he is still "playing" with it. At this time he is very happy with the radio.

Robust, well constructed with great audio

A robust, tight and well constructed dual band digital/analog radio. Consistently positive comments on the the great audio from other hams. Two things detract from a five star rating. The first is the trackball - it is very sensitive allowing the channel to be changed accidentally - particularly if one is in the habit of placing the radio face down. A four way pad would be a better solution. Second is the CPS software v1.16 - it is extremely buggy and needs to be reworked. In my opinion, a significant software advancement would be to see "Zones" become repeaters/time slots were you enter the frequency information once and then assign talk groups to a repeater. Advance the software to make it "Ham" oriented. A higher transmission rate would also be welcome!

I find the RT82 easy to use after a short learning period

I find the RT82 easy to use after a short learning period. My audio reports are good and the audio I get from the radio are very good. It feels good and sturdy in my hand. I like being able to monitor/talk on both VHF and UHF, DMR and Analog. I use CPS2017 software to program it and seems to work great. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that so far I have been unable to find where to purchase just the battery for the RT82. UPDATE: Changed to 5 stars, since I was able to get a spare battery.

Great radio, hard to program

I really like the radio, but it has a really steep learning curve for programming.
