I love the Ailuance HD1 DMR Transceiver
I love the Ailuance HD1 DMR Transceiver. I liked it so much I bought two. Digital is the wave of the future. In some rrspects it is better than HF, although the diehards will wrinkle their noses at this. My one disappointment is that you cannot use the keypad to enter a code when the mic is qued.
DMR is a blast! Still Hanging Onto My HF Gear!!!
After spending a few days programming my friends radio, and now my own, I am very please with the quality of the Ailunce HD1. We have had great audio reports from those who we have contacted. These radios are very new out and unless someone already has a code plug written, you will be building your code plug from scratch as in my case I have the very first HD1 in the state of Montana. Between the two units, quality control has been very good. This radio has a nice clear screen with large text on the display. I typically have been transmitting on low power through a oneSpot node, so the battery lasts a very long time. I have yet to drain it below 80%. I do have the analog repeaters set to operate at high power, and still strong battery. Remember when you program your analog frequencies in that you set your bandwidth wide otherwise you will get weaker audio reports.
You can program the entire radio from the front panel there was no need for a computer which makes it an excellent feature. Their customer service Department is excellent
I received my HD1 2 days after placing the order. I am very impressed with the build quality and the overall features with this radio. You can program the entire radio from the front panel there was no need for a computer which makes it an excellent feature. Their customer service Department is excellent. I had a minor issue with the radio getting hot when using high power I contacted customer service and they responded to me in less than 24 hours on how to remedy the problem, that being said I would recommend this radio to anyone with an amateur radio license that is looking for a handheld DMR radio
