Just got an email from Wouxun and they have announced a QUAD-BAND mobile radio. The latest addition to the Wouxun family will be a 29/50/144/430 MHz radio with all the usual bells and whistles. Here are some specs: Multiple RX/TX frequency ranges: RX: 28.000-29.795MHZ 50.000-54.995MHZ 108.000-180.995MHZ (AM/FM) 320-480.995MHZ 65.000-108.000MHZ TX: 28.000-29.795MHZ 50.000-54.995MHZ 136.000-174.995MHZ [...]
I got the wiring done up just like the diagram specified but for some reason it won’t key up the radio on transmit. I can receive and decode the DStar data stream with no issues. I have emailed a few resources and waiting for a reply.
Today is the day that I try setting up my new Dutch*Star mini hotspot board to my Kenwood D700 From what I can read it should be a quick and easy process for the wiring. DB9 at one end and a Mini 6 Pin DIN at the other. I went to the local electronics store here [...]
Just finished wiring up my IRLP node again. From the signal reports it’s sounding great! I’ll make it look a little prettier in the next few days.
Back in December I got an email from the folks over at Anytone who said they’d be shipping me a new 5888UV once the bugs are all worked out. Just wanted to let everyone know that I haven’t abandoned the cause to review these great radios. Cheers JD
A member of my repeater club has taken his beautiful Cessna 310 Island hopping in the Bahamas. I’m personally extremely jealous but none the less here are his videos.

Anytone has decided to rename their radio so that there is no confusion between their single band AT-588 and their dual band AT-588UV. Hopefully people are diligent when buying and getting their radios from a reliable source.
I previously posted that same band simultaneous receive works on this version but I am mistaken. When listening to 2 VHF or UHF frequencies at the same time the main vfo will take over the audio. You can however listen to a UHF / VHF at the same time. Sorry for the confusion.
Buyer Beware. I’ve gotten more than a few emails from people saying that they have been having awful issues with their radios that they have purchased online from various retailers. I know most of the retailers in the US and CAN are very straightforward ( ImportComm, KightRadio to name a few ) I don’t know [...]
So I’ve had the new version A for a few days now and I have to say it’s a nice little radio. XBand repeat works. In fact there’s like 4 modes of xband repeat. I understand the regular xband and the locked band repeat. Just not sure what the other 2 do exactly. I have [...]
