Halloween AM Net

A chance to dig out your old AM rigs as stations across the UK celebrate Halloween with an old fashioned and no doubt very spooky AM Net.

The Net will take place on 27.125 Mhz on 31st October 2017 between 19:00 and 21:00 GMT.

Why not go out mobile to a very dark and haunted area? 

You're sure to have the willies put up you! (Oh, no, stop it missus!)

TYT MD-760 DMR Handheld (Same As Radioddity GD-77)

TYT have a new radio, the MD-760, which is their own branded version of the popular budget DMR radio the Radioddity GD-77 (Or should that be the other way round? It's so hard to tell these days!)

Features are expected to be the same as the GD-77:

Price is unknown but the GD-77 sells for under £80 here in the UK so I would expect a similar price.
