    I REALLY LIKE THE CAME OUT WITH A BLACK , NIGHT , REVERSE SCREEN , WE WILL LOVE IT TO BE PERFECT RADIO for me

    RD-5R is device with excelent price/perfomance ratio, but I missing those features:

    - There is no option to manual dial to group call, only private call, it is not very clever setup groups only via computer
    other vendors use # long press in manual dial screen to switch between private or group dial

    - There sould be option in RX group to receive all groups on tuned channel (with defined Color Code and TimeSlot) lets say highest possible group number should be reserverd for special group – promiscouos mode, this option is due to limited contacts in RX group and also if you want setup rig universally to listen all groups, specially when you traveling to foregin counties without computer

    - When you use dual watch feature on DMR mode and one of channels is ocupied and transmitting group is not in RX group, green LED is lid (logicaly no sound) but it is not possible detect which channel is in use because there is no any signalization on dispaly, I assume that is better to change arrow sign next to ocupied channel same way like RX group matching transmitting group.

    The squelch tail noise is gone! Thank you so much. Is there any possibility to enable display of embedded Talker Alias? In that manner we wouldn’t have to pick and choose which DMR contacts to load and better utilize that limited resource to TG entries. Thanks so much for the consideration.

    First off, I would like to thank you very much for resolving the squelch noise issue. It had previously made this radio unusable for me.

    I would like to offer up two firmware suggestions:
    1) Please allow scanning while dual-watch is enabled by temporarily disabling dual watch automatically while scanning. As far as I can tell, this is what the UV-5R does.
    2) Please extend the max number of channels in a zone to AT LEAST 32 channels per zone. Being unable to fit all 22 GMRS channels in a single zone (for RX only) is very frustrating. If scan list is limited to 16 channels, please extend this to match.

    Let it be known that I’ve spoken to several people that were interested in purchasing one of these radios and I’ve advised each of them not to buy until these issues are resolved via firmware update. I promise to buy a bunch of these radios if these 2 enhancements are properly implemented.

    Hello Jackson,
    I appreciated the improvement regarding the squelch noise. But for ham radio use of the handheld it is necessary to be able to add new TALK GROUP from keypads, not only via software. Regards
