Talkaround: Transmitting and receiving on the repeater output frequency. Thus, you "talk around" the repeater directly with the other station. (Same as simplex). Both stations in a conversation can do this. Reverse: Switching transmit and receive frequencies. Thus, you can talk directly to another station that is still on the repeater's ...

Just starting out here I currently don't have the rep-points to upvote his post, but I think that N3CAN is exactly correct. Regrettably the so called HotKeys on the Anytone 878 and 578 just seem to be something like "Links" or shortcuts to submenus, which then can be used as an assigment to one of the function keys, so the name is a little ...

To the best of my knowledge, both of your features are not implemented. You can choose either name or frequency in "channel mode" and assign a key to switch between channel and VFO mode.

The green key appears to have the name "Func", even though I can't find that actually in any manual. You long press the green key, and then can trigger 0-9, and * and #. On my brand new 878, a long-press of the Menu key acts as the 'Function' button (not sure that's in the manual anywhere, either). The Green key (PF3) is assignable as all the other ...

From what I remember, after you program the Hot Keys, you then need to apply them to an actual key (PF1, PF2, PF3, P1, P2) to access them. Basically they are like functions that you can define (things that are not otherwise available for key assignment). If you look at the options that are available for, let's say the PF2 key, Hot Keys 1-6 should be ...

That is a nice radio. Your best ground is at the alternator, but most of the time that is not easily accessible. The next would be the Chassis and finally the Battery. Reason for this order is the Ground of the power source (alternator) is connected to the chassis (Typically the engine block) which is also connected to the battery -. You can toggle between ...

If you click on "22" in the web page you linked to, you're taken to this page, which reveals that Part 22 is CFR › Title 47 › Volume 2 › Chapter I › Subchapter B › Part 22 - Public Mobile Services. So I think the answer that you were looking for is that Part 22 is Public Mobile Services. I was surprised to see that Wikipedia doesn't have an ...

I'm tempted to believe that using dual time slots (DCDM) mode might work with dPMR, since you are no longer bothering with TDMA. However, I couldn't find anything in my research. Try switching the AT-D878UV to use both time slots at the same time and test it with a dPMR radio on simplex. While it probably won't work, it's your best bet since DCDM does not ...

I'm posting this answer —by someone else— below. I'm assuming that it's a good one. You CAN assign a button to switch between Name and Frequency. Menu/Settings/Radio Set/(choose key like PF3 Long Press)/Ch.Name — When pressed, it will alternate between Frequency and Name on the display. Per Thomas's comment, this required a firmware update to v. 1.21 to ...
