Cody,

Email me directly and I'll give you a copy of the code plug I'm using for my Anytone 868.  That should give you lots of clues.

Re: DRM Anytone 878

Cody,

  First question, where did you buy your 878?  Have you tried the following:



Q: I just received my radio and tried to load a codeplug I was given and I get "Band Error". How do I fix it?

A: All the new radios are coming in "MODE 0010" which is ham band tx only. This makes it so the keyboards do NOT have to be locked as soon as you receive them. The ones we have seen until recenly came over in "MODE 0000", which allowed 136-174 and 400-480 rx and tx. But by FCC rules they had to start being locked so non Ham customers had to have a two way shop program them, and general users could not make changes to the programming. The bad side is a MODE 0010 radio will not take a MODE 0000 codeplug. SO do the following to fix it:

1) turn off the radio, and turn back on while holding the PTT and Number 1 key on the Keypad (NOT the P1 button). 

2) when the screen says "TEST MODE" release the buttons and then the screen will show "MODE 0010". Rotate the Channel Knob counter clockwise to set it to "MODE 0000".

3) reboot and you are done!



Next - I created a base code plug for you with a bunch of frequencies - you can adjust if you want!!  I included the code plug with your DMR ID Number as well.  You can use the attached codeplug, or pick from it what you want.


Let me know if this doesn't help.

I agree with you, Cody, it's very frustrating to have money invested in a radio that you can't figure out.

The upside is that there are generally people who are willing to help you out.  The downside is that getting that help is frequently not convenient.  I don't have any solutions for you except possibly go to YouTube and search for the Bridgecom channel to see if their videos help you out, or maybe try to contact them via their website  https://www.bridgecomsystems.com/  They're the guys who are behind a lot of the DMR push in this region and, from what I've seen, really want to help folks get OTA with DRM radios.

A friend of mine just checked and reports that Halyard is only available to hospitals at this time, so this design might be of limited usefulness at this time.

About the same time I found a zip bag with N95 face masks, that I purchased in 2016. Good news and bad news. It turns out that 3M
N95 face masks have an expiration date. Namely, the foam rubber strip around the nose degrades and crumbles. I found another N95
that I had worn while mowing my lawn; the foam rubber strip was crumbling.

So, I think that while we are in the midst of the pandemic, we need to consider making out own.

Fred, do you know if the material mentioned in the Youtube is available?
