Best DMR Radio for 2022 (via Hamtronics)

Richard Pennington and Robert Combs over at Hamtronics.com have a great article outlining the best DMR radios for 2022.


While I generally agree with their assessment, I will say the omission of the Anytone AT-D878UVII is a very large miss. They do list the 878UVI as the best overall, but some of the other top categories (aka Most Modern) could be influenced by the UVII from Anytone.

I also have a hard time agreeing that the BTECH DMR-6X2 is the "most modern" considering it's the same radio as the AT-D878UVI they have listed. Again the UVII would likely take both categories in my opinion.

What do you think?

Open your Pi-star dashboard by host name:

You can open the Pi-Star dashboard on any Windows, Mac, or Linux computer (not the hotspot) connected to the same network as the hotspot by browsing to (use trailing slash) http://pi-star/ for Windows, or http://pi-star.local/. Enabled modes are highlighted green, and you can monitor activity. You can also sign in to the admin dashboard from this as well - it works just like using the IP address.
