In our Facebook group, we often see some ham friends ask like this "I am trying to choose my next DMR radio, which one will you recommend ? Yes, many hams will recommend AilunceHD1. Let's see why they recommend HD1.
I still vote for the HD-1 unequivocally. It is IP67 rated, Every review mentions that it is SOLID ib the hand (Think built like a Motorola) I have read a review where it was accidentally dropped some 10 or 20 feet to concrete and survived. I do NOT believe the 878 has any other reviews like that. Also, I personally have had very positive after-sale support from Ailunce that anyone cannot match.
I have owned an HD1 for a couple of years now and haven’t had one issue with it at all. Great radio. Very sturdy also. Dropped mine a couple of times with no damage whatsoever. Great audio. I love mine.
The HD1 is the only DMR radio I've owned and I love it. Using the hand mic, I received unsolicited great audio reports with one being from a local digital guru. He commented that it was the best audio he ever heard on DMR.
I have an HD1, it is an exceptional radio. Great build quality, great sound quality(both transmit and receive), easy to program from the front of the radio as well as through a computer. this is a GREAT radio.
I have 2 hd1's and don't have issues with either one. My hd1s are my goto radio's especially outdoors in rainy weather.
I for one am Very Very Pleased with my HD1.I have owned it for about 2 years and if I need another DMR HT I will buy another HD1.
I have an HD1 and have beaten the piss out of it on the trails and off reading. Has worked great, and has saved my tail in the backwoods a few times. People get petty over radio nuances, don’t let the nonsense sway you. Ailunce makes a solid radio, can verify by experience.
also some hams, they are very enjoy with their Ailunce HD1.
