So this video shows a new firmware for the Radioddity GD-77 which adds several features to the radio including a VFO mode.
PLEASE NOTE this firmware is not yet available on the Radioddity website so upgrade AT YOUR OWN RISK.
It is said to come from a Radioddity employee but I cannot confirm this 100%. The original post is on the 'Radioddity Two Way Radio' Facebook Page.
I will be waiting for some feedback from other users before trying myself as I do not want a bricked radio!!!!!
UPDATE: Firmware and new software now on official Radioddity website - CLICK HERE
So it would appear that there is yet another DMR handheld radio in the works, this time from Baofeng.
The Baofeng DM-1701 is a dual band radio with FM and DMR modes. The dual controls on the top of the radio may indicate a VFO mode/Channel Selector?
There is no word of a cost yet but Baofeng are normally one of the cheapest suppliers out there so hopefully it will be a good price.
Below you can see the first 'Real World' photo of the radio....

So Nevada have become the first UK seller to take pre-orders for the new President Ronald 10/12m radio.
Priced at £179.95 it certainly isn't cheap. The US price is $139 which equates to £105 (YES you read that correctly!!!)
But even if we forget about the price we do have to ask who is actually going to buy this radio?

News from the guys involved in The Eastern Counties Net in the UK is that due to the popularity and coverage of the net they are moving frequency to avoid interference to/from other UK nets.
The net has been operating on 27.365 USB for some time, but from 13th December 2017 the net will now take place on 27.345 USB (Two channels lower).
