The guys over at BridgeCom Systems are a great bunch of folks. I have been exchanging emails with them for a few months about some DMR items they sell, along with their new 220MHz product line, both a handheld radio and a mobile radio. At the time of this post, the mobile radio isn’t ready yet, but their HT was released a short time ago and they asked me to review it. I was happy to do so. The results are quite positive, so take a look at the video below for the BCH-220 HT Radio from BridgeCom.
If you are in the Dallas / Ft Worth area and are interested in the 1.25-meter band, check out the DFW 220 Net, held on Thursday evenings at 8:30pm on the 224.780MHz machine in Ft Worth. CTCSS tone is 110.9. We always welcome new checkins to this net. It is run by the MJARS club and they do a fantastic job of getting people active on 220MHz.
