Great Introduction to DMR
The MD390 is marketed as waterproof, but I'd hesitate to use it like a true waterproof radio. It's definitely water resistant, so safe to use in rain if if dropped into a puddle, but I wouldn't try to use it in a marine application. See You Tube videos of people dunking it in water and decide for yourself.

When asked if it's easy to use, my initial answer was NO! But it's not the radio's fault, it's because DMR is confusing to those new to the mode, even if you have over 40 years in analog radio. Read about DMR on the DMR-MARC site (where you get your DMR ID number). Check out You Tube as well for DMR explanations. VA3XPR also has a lot of great information about DMR as well as firmware and software downloads.

The radio itself has a good menu system that is easy to understand (if you've programmed radios before) and operation is simple, so in that way, it's easy to use. The free factory software is a bit of a pain as there is no way to import repeater lists from other software. I'm hoping that Chirp or RT Systems will take on this radio to make transitioning easier.

There are individuals who have created software that works with the factory software to bulk load contacts (digital ID numbers for users and talk groups) and channels (repeater information, including frequencies, timeslots, talk groups, etc.). There is also a new channel editor which makes editing and re-arranging your channels much easier. However, be careful as this software is experimental and can brick your radio if you're not careful.

Transmit and receive audio is very good. The receiver is sensitive both in digital and analog modes. Once you get used to the increased range, battery life, and clarity of DMR, it might be hard to go back to analog FM.

My only complaints about the radio package are that it seems to take a long time to charge the battery and the display is hard to read in sunlight and impossible to read if the backlight is off. The MD390 display is better in bright sunlight than the MD380, but it's still not easy to read. If I use the radio for only an hour with limited transmitting, it seems to take a couple of hours to recharge. My other walkies usually charge in less than half the time.

I should note that the radio from Let's Get Ready came with two antennas. The stubby one for convenience and a longer one for improved range. The longer antenna from LGR is the same length as the standard dual-band duckie, so it's more convenient to carry, but not as effective as the 15-18" long antennas some radios come with. You can buy the longer antenna if you really need it. Note that the antennas that come with the MD380 and MD390 radios are band specific, they are not dual band.

One thing to note is that the keypad will not allow you to fully program a new digital channel. You can program an analog channel from scratch, but some features are not available for digital programming from the keyboard, you need to use the manufacturer's software. Create a zone with a handful of blank analog channels and a handful of blank digital channels so you have something to program channels you need in the field.

DMR is different than analog in that, unless you have everything perfect, you won't hear a thing and no one will hear you, even if you are on the right repeater frequency. I use a second, analog, radio to monitor a DMR repeater so I know when it's transmitting. Then I can experiment with various options, talk groups, etc. to fix my programming on on the radio. When all the options are right (Timeslot, Talk Group, options), suddenly, you'll be able to hear the repeater.

If you're new to DMR, do yourself a favor and join the local DMR repeater group. You should be able to get assistance with color codes, talk groups, timeslots, etc. and assistance programming your radio for the first time. You might even be able to get a codeplug (programming file) for your local area. Otherwise, go to youtube and look for videos on programming the MD380. It will save you a lot of time and possibly your sanity!

By the way, although the zones are limited to 16 channels due to the 16 position switch on the radio, you can expand your listening by programming up to 31 channels to a Scan Group. In addition, by including all the talk groups for a repeater timeslot in a group, you can monitor many channels using just one digital channel. For example, on one of my local repeaters, Timeslot 1 includes World, World English, and North America. Timeslot 2 includes Local, Southwest, etc. By programming all the talkgroups for each timeslot into a group on that channel, I can monitor 3-4 digital channels using just one scanner slot.

Also, if there are channels you want to monitor, but never talk on, like police or fire frequencies, you don't have to include them in a zone, but rather just include them in a scan list.

How does this compare to the MD380? It's slightly taller, slightly thicker and slightly heavier. The knobs have white stripes on them, making it easier to tell which channel you're on and what the volume setting is. The speaker/mic connector cover is held closed with a thumb screw and the battery contacts have a rubber seal. The belt clip is mounted to the body instead of the battery and is slightly heavier duty. I find the MD380 more comfortable to carry, but the MD390 is also okay to carry.

Although this radio is limited to just UHF, I find myself carrying it around with me as much as any of my other dual-band HTs. The receiver works well and using the stock antenna I can hear many repeaters, both analog and digital. Overall, a fun little radio. Being water resistant, it's also great for emergency communications and hiking. Not sure if I'd risk it going ocean kayaking as there are waterproof floating bags available for other radios, but the MD390 has already become a go-to radio in my collection.

My absolute favorite in the TYT MD lineup!
I own several of the TYT MD series radios and out of all them the MD-390 is my absolute favorite. I have the 390UHF model but was thrilled to see the VHF model was out.


- The display is bright and crisp and easy to read day or night.
- The build quality is excellent and feels great in the hand.
- IP67 is a nice bonus (I haven't tested this in bad weather but it has gotten damp at work and it has not effected the unit at all.)
- Belt clip is much heavier duty then the MD-380.
- Audio reports are excellent.
- The speaker has plenty of volume for working in loud situations.
- FCC Part90 approved so it's legal for commercial frequencies. FCC ID #10337A-MD380
- Charger is nice quality and a positive fit when you place the radio in to charge (many China radios the chargers are kind of flaky.)
- GPS function is nice especially for emergency use. (Many repeaters require this to be turned off though, so check your repeater rules.)
- Functions as an analog radio as well as DMR.
- Compatible with Mototrbo Tier I & II as well as any other DMR complying with digital protocol ETSI TS 102 361-1,-2,-3
- Uses the standard Kenwood style 2 pin speaker mic
- Code plugs are interchangeable between the MD-380's and MD-390's.


- Charger is a bit slow, grab a spare battery and it's not a big deal!
- No extended batteries available as of 11/28/2016

I've recommended this radio to a lot of people who also bought and love it. This radio is basically a more rugged and "water resistant" TYT MD-380 which is more suited in a commercial environment. Try it, you will love it.

A great group to learn about the TYT radios is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TYTradioGroup/

Just buy one or two!
Everything arrived in perfect condition, very well packaged. Easy to use and working perfect to DMR System.
Review by Bill /
OK "budget" DMR radio.
Over all OK with this "budget" class DMR radio.
Build is better then the 380.
Transmit audio is excellent.
Receive performance is OK if you don't mind the green RX light flashing all the time due to poor front end filters, if they exist.
Battery life is decent as to expect on DMR. Hope the cells are better quality and last longer then the 380.
Looks like a Moto 7550. I and would recommend this DMR radio for those on a fixed income.
Is not FCC Part 90 approved; can't find it on their website.

Unbelievable Radio
I just decided to get into DMR after a presentation at one of my Ham Club meetings. This is a great radio for the price. Very easy to program. Very easy to make codeplugs.. I can reach repeaters out of my local area..The audio is great..This is the only radio for DMR that I will need. KW4RG

Great radio.
Nice radio for the price. A little difficult to program using keypad.
Computer programming has learning curve, but once you get used to it, it's not bad.
Been enjoying it and having fun. A good introduction to DMR.
