If you are thinking about one of these, keep a couple of things in mind:
1) You do need a ham radio license to legally operate this radio. The license is inexpensive and fairly easy to get.
2) Make sure there is a DMR repeater in your area. If unsure, a quick internet search should give you an answer.
3) Make sure your local DMR repeater is on the same frequency band as the radio you are looking at. This one covers the 70cm band.
4) Once you get the radio, you need to apply for an ID number that you obtain from the DMR-MARC Network. This number gets programmed into your radio and is used to identify your signal when you transmit on DMR repeaters.
5) DMR is different than other digital modes and is not compatible with modes like Fusion, D-Star, etc.
I hope all of this info helps!
The radio, while not IP67, is a decent build. I have no issues with build quality. This is the UHF version of the MD-380. UHF is most popular in the US for DMR, although there is VHF DMR out there as well which the VHF version of the MD-380 radio accommodates. Note that the VHF version won't allow storing of the user database as it has less storage memory than this UHF version. Also note that TYT has just released a dualband DMR radio (MD-2017) that has GPS built-in for twice the cost of this radio. For a version of this MD-380 UHF radio with GPS, look at the MD-380G or MD-390.
UPDATE: I just got the UHF DVMega board for the Raspberry Pi. I’m now dedicating one of my RPi3’s completely for both SDR and a DMR Hotspot. For SDR, I’m using: Diamond Discone D-130J Antenna (outside) + LMR400 cable + LNA + RTL-SDR Broadcast FM Bandreject Filter (more of an attenuator than a complete block, but MAJORLY reduced harmonics) + NooElec Ham-It-Up Upconverter * NooElec NESDR SMArt. Great setup for SDR. Then, the mentioned DVMega board is plugged into the RPi3 giving a DMR hotspot as well. It is very nice being able to access DMR channels without having to rely on the closest repeater, which is 11 miles away...
BTW: The screws for the battery clip are size M2.5x5. I bought a bunch of them to have around. Put some LocTite or something into the holes before placing the screws else they will eventually come loose and fall out. It was a bad choice of screw size by TYT, but easily fixed with a little LocTite...
Update again: I now also have a smaller MMDVM board on a RPi0W and can be completely portable, using my iPhone’s WiFi hotspot, without needing a repeater. The MD380 works great on it as well. I’ve also had an Anytone AT-D868UV DMR HT for a while and although it has become my preferred HT for DMR, it is still nice having this 380 to fall back on. The 380 is always rock-solid stable, even while the 868 was going through some “growing pains” with FW (which have been resolved).
Audio output is string and solid, and the quality or the speaker makes it one of the best sounding handhelds I've every carried --- Amateur or commercial.
Analog FM is where this radio really shines. The mic audio is a little hot so no need to yell, and it does pick up wind noise easily. But the TX audio is nothing short of outstanding.
Unlike Baofengs that exhibit SDR compression artifacting in the RX audio, this one is as clean as any Yaesu or Kenwood I've ever had. No problem with intermod. Sensitivity and selectivity are top notch.
This has been my new daily carry since purchased despite being UHF only. It's performs amazingly well on analog FM, is extremely well built, and well worth the money I spent. I'm hard to impress, and I am certainly impressed.
