I can't find it in Google Play. What does the logo look like? Do you have a link?

Thanks,

DMR Radio / Re: DMR use in conflict situations

Yes he is ;-)

Definitely, that is an interesting subject. I have only looked at the TYT MD-680, great handheld for prepping groups. The one-time-pad is a great, albeit slow option with Morse code; I have made a video on that..

Hello,

Mine is starting to act up a bit, with a few-second delay befopre starting... Probably a capacitor going bad...

Thanks, interesting if just for the added privacy. I will have a look!

Hello Dieter.

I think so too. Even the mere fact that it is digital prevents lots of people from listening. I did make a video on the TYT MD-680, which does have encryption... That would be my choice...
Do you have the links handy to those bits of info about DMR use in conflicts by any chance?
Thanks!

Hi, not lately... Yurii doesn't always answer email. I think he doesn't really speak English, not sure. You are right to check before ordering though. Maybe he is super busy after getting a bunch of orders...

Hello,

Given the variations of impedance of random wires, I don't think it would make much of a difference...

Hello,

40m is a great choice, and as your only band, go for it!
I do like 30m but because there are no contests there and no voice ops, and also because I already have a bunch of 40m radios...

Good news, I was able to make digital modes work by bypassing HamLib and using FLRig for JS8Call!

Hello, thanks. Yes, I will test it thoroughly, and of course especially CW, but also digital modes and SSB. Field test will have to wait of course, but there will be enough to explore for more than one video anyway! I should get it any day now...
