Baofeng about to launch an UV-82 DMR Tier 2 Dual-band

This time it’s not an April fool, as was the case in 2014 with the false Baofeng DMR DA-77 from PD0AC, he was also not that far away from the reality today 😉

Thus, after the launch of Baofeng DM-5R (designed for Radioddity), the first walkie-talkie dual band VHF-UHF analogue and digital mode in Tier 1, Baofeng is about to launch a new DMR handheld based on a UV-82 dual band.

This new DMR walkie-talkie will be Tier 2, ie compatible with Motorala devices, Hytera and TYT, and for traffic DMR on amateur band. No need to make a (complex) update to Tier 2 at an extra cost of $10.

The release of the new DMR Baofeng UV-82 type, is planned for the end of 2016 and will be available during 2017 for the European market.

The price is not yet known precisely but will be low below 100€ in Europe.

I had the opportunity to have the device in hand and to test is quickly, here is the first picture:

One thought on “Baofeng about to launch an UV-82 DMR Tier 2 Dual-band”

  1. FDMA (like the DM-5R), or TDMA so as to be compliant with DMR capable repeaters?

    THAT is the question which needs to be focused on. Without TDMA, you will only make enemies on DMR repeaters.
