Discover Anytone AT-D868UV, what is it really worth? 📶

Intro

You used to find on my blog articles about MMDVM. I’m back from HamRadio show in Friedrichshafen with this new DMR and analog dual band UHF and VHF in my luggage: the famous Anytone AT-D868-UVE. This new item is sell about150 € in Europe.

I take advantage of the few weeks of tests to present you an report of the use of this recent DMR Tier 2 talky-walky, and see with you if “famous” rhymes with “fabulous”. Let’s first look at the features on the paper.

The box contains :

  • Complete 37-page manual booklet in English (on paper!)
  • Anytone AT-D868UVE
  • Battery 3100 mAh
  • Portable dual band V/U antenna (157mm)
    Programming cable
  • Charging base
  • Charging Power Transformer
  • Belt clip
  • Lanyard

The box does not contain any software. You will need to download the programming software with its USB driver to install first (and firmware 2.30): 868UV_V2.30 official released

  1. aprs with anytone AT-D868UV?

    I’m also interesting in your MMDVM with STM32, how to start?
    Is the code opensource? I would adapt to STM32F072 nucleo, if possible?

    Je suis aussi intéressé par votre MMDVM avec STM32, comment commencer ?
    Le code est-il open source ? Je m’adapterais au nuclĂ©o STM32F072, si possible ?

    1. Erik,

      As written in the review, APRS feature is not for moment supported since the format is not (for moment) supported by the networks. I need to test that in more detail.
      About MMDVM, yes the projects (MMDVM and MMDVMHost) are opensource : https://github.com/g4klx My PCB (with standard size components) is available on shop.f5uii.net, as gerber PCB files here. MMDVM is not design for this nucleo STM32F072 board.

      Erik,

      Comme Ă©crit dans l’article, la fonction APRS n’est pas supportĂ©e pour le moment puisque le format n’est pas (pour le moment) supportĂ© par les rĂ©seaux. Je dois tester cela plus en dĂ©tail.
      A propos de MMDVM, oui les projets (MMDVM et MMDVMHost) sont open source : https://github.com/g4klx Mon PCB (avec composants Ă  taille standard) est disponible sur shop.f5uii.net, ou avec les fichiers Gerber ici. MMDVM n’est pas conçu pour cette carte nuclĂ©o STM32F072.

    2. Many thanks for the APRS feature, it works now with release 2.32.
      (FYI:
      firstly I didn’t perform the icon upgrade,
      my calls didn’t showed up on brandmeister and the rig freezed after a while).

      Another pending on my experimental list is the MMDVM with a STM32; is there an how to for amateur?

      (Traduction)
      Merci beaucoup pour la fonctionnalité APRS, elle fonctionne maintenant avec la version 2.32.
      (Pour votre information :
      Dans un premier temps, je n’ai pas effectuĂ© la mise Ă  jour des icĂ´nes,
      mes appels n’apparaissait pas sur Brandmeister et le poste se bloquait au bout d’un moment).

      Une chose sur ma liste expĂ©rimentale est le MMDVM avec un STM32 ; y a-t-il un mode d’emploi pour amateur ?

  2. Bonjour comment supprimer le call end ?

    (Translation)
    Hello how to suppress the call end?

    1. Julien,

      Tous simplement dans les options du CPS : Optional Settings / Onglet Digital Fun / Call End Prompt Box = Off

      (Translation)
      Julien,

      Simply in the CPS options: Optional Settings / Digital Fun / Call End Prompt Box = Off

        1. En effet, l’option a Ă©tĂ© dĂ©placĂ©e. Elle est Ă  prĂ©sent dans l’onglet Display du CPS: Optional Settings / Onglet Display / Call End Prompt Box = Off

          display

          (Translation)
          Indeed, the option has been moved. It is now in the CPS Display tab: Optional Settings / Display Tab / Call End Prompt Box = Off

  3. Merci je confirme cela va mieux sans le bruit lol.

    Savez vous comment avoir un bip avant de parler ??

    (Translation)
    Thanks I confirm it goes better without the noise (lol).

    Do you know how to get a beep before you talk??

    1. Un bip peu retentir Ă  la fin de la transmission de votre correspondant, permettant ainsi de savoir quand reprendre le microphone. Dans le CPS, ouvrir le panneau Optional Setting / Onglet Alert tone / Digital Call ResetTone = On

      (Translation)
      A beep may sound at the end of your partner’s transmission, allowing you to know when to pick up the microphone. In the CPS, open the Optional Setting / Alert tone tab / Digital Call ResetTone = On tab.

  4. How would you add 1 frequency without a pc that I would like to monitor. It’s a fire department so its just to listen to on DMR. 156.50 mhz CC 8
    TG 14120000 SL 1. Would I use your add a channel or add a talkgroup to keep it stored.
    Then switch on Digi Mon for that frequency.

    (Traduction)
    Comment ajouteriez-vous 1 frĂ©quence que j’aimerais surveiller sans un PC. C’est un service d’incendie, donc c’est juste pour Ă©couter sur DMR. 156.50 mhz CC 8
    TG 14120000 SL 1. J’utiliserais le canal ou d’un groupe de discussion pour le garder en mĂ©moire.
    puis ensuite Digi Mon pour cette fréquence.

  5. Bonjour les amis,
    Après une manipulation malencontreuse, mon AnyTone AT-D868UV reste verrouillĂ©. J’ai bien fait la manip appuyĂ© sur Ă©toile rien n’y fait, j’ai mĂŞme dĂ©branchĂ© la batterie, remis en route en appuyant sur * toujours la mĂŞme rĂ©ponse Key Locked. Que dois-je faire ?
    Merci pour la réponse. Philippe F6FBD

    Hello friends,
    After an unfortunate manipulation, my AnyTone AT-D868UV remains locked. I did the manipulation well pressed on star nothing did there, I even disconnected the battery, restarted by pressing * always the same Key Locked answer. What am I supposed to do?
    Thanks for the answer. Philippe F6FBD

    1. Bonjour,

      Je suggère de recharger sur le poste un codeplug dans lequel vous aurez vérifié que la fonction Keyboard Lock est sur Off (Optional Setting, Onglet Key Function).

      I suggest to reload on the workstation a codeplug in which you will have verified that the Keyboard Lock function is on Off (Optional Setting, Key Function tab).
