BTECH AMP-25 Series Amplifiers

"The AMP-25 series do more than just amplify a signal, they also purify your signal as it passes through! We are also thrilled to present a whole new way to connect with amplifiers, allowing you to use a handheld mic and built-in speaker - just as if it were a mobile or base radio (but at a significantly lower cost)."

Prices range from $88 to $105 based on the model.

BTECH AMP-V25 Amplifier for VHF (136-174MHz)
BTECH AMP-U25 Amplifier for UHF (400-480MHz)

HamRadio 360 Podcast SK

I know how he feels... it's hard to blog sometimes and it doesn't require a fraction of the effort to produce a podcast. Good luck Cale on your next endeavor!

All Good Things:
"However, I began to realize just how much of me it took to produce quality content and maintain the brand. In October of 2017 I took a break from my regular show production with a promise to return in 2018. I upheld that promise but soon realized that the continued pressure to perform and create was more than I was willing to maintain anymore. 
With that understanding I have decided to discontinue, in it’s entirety, the Ham Radio 360 Podcast. I plan to maintain the Website and Podcast Feed of past shows and content as a contribution to the Amateur Radio Hobby."

Yaesu FT-818: Update

Almost 6 years since this post... maybe the FT-818 is real.

Thanks to Razvan for the heads up.

Wow... it has been probably a year since I updated the list. I bet I added 40-50 to The Radios page.

Radioddity Baofeng RD-5R: DMR HT

Based on the UV-5R form factor, Radioddity is releasing a new DMR HT... the RD-5R:
As the first Radioddity-Baofeng co-produced DMR, RD-5R is featured with solid quality and affordable price. The FM radio function, LED flashlight and built in VFO mode make it stands out from other DMRs.
Sticked with classical design of the 5R family, this time RD-5R is a true dual band dual time slot DMR.
Fingers crossed that this will be a better radio than the DM-5R. Projected price is approximately $70 USD. In the comments, they note that the "RD-5R share pretty much the same CPS with GD-77 and hopefully this will make it a lot easier" to program and thus it will have all the GD-77 DMR functionality.

DCRainmaker is my go to resource for information on running watches and other, similar tech. He got to do a ride along with a pro cycling team in their support car. He talks about some of the radio problems and what looks like an Alinco DR-635 makes an appearance.
