Radio Reviews: The Retevis RT84 a Cheap DMR
The Retevis RT84 is a semi-competent handheld radio. It is a good contender as a starter into the world of Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) that is both affordable and usable. A lot of digital radio at the moment is quite expensive and can demand quite a premium over the analogue radios with the Retevis RT84 being three times the price of the Baofeng UV-5R. The Retevis RT84 is one of the cheapest VHF/UHF DMR’s on the market right now. This makes it a good radio to look into, to test the waters as it were to see if it is worth investing in a more expensive solution or not. However they’re not without their faults, and there is a lot of them.
