DMR

Everyone else seems to be getting DMR equipment so I thought I'd get one myself - a Retevis RT-3 UHF handheld. It's a clone of the Tytera MD-380 and one of the cheapest, at under £120.
I've used it on my local repeater GB7MB (Heysham, Colour Code 1, 439.700 MHz) and also simplex where there is quite a bit of activity on 438.5875 MHz round the Barrow-In-Furness area.
I've not been much of a repeater user but I like the way you can see the activity on any repeater using the DMR live monitor

I can also receive a few other DMR repeaters at home:
GB7PN 439.425 Prestatyn (2nd best)
GB7CA 430.925 Douglas, Isle Of Man
GB7TP  439.6875 Keighley
