DV4mobile Radio Preorder available.
DV4mobile, the tri-band (2m, 1.25m and 70cm) mobile transceiver is available for preorder here.
The radio was on display in May 2016 at the Dayton Hamvention.
The DV4mobile is primarily a digital radio, supporting all of the most popular digital modes (DMR, DStar, C4FM, dPMR). But that’s not all. It also has a LTE chip, Bluetooth and WiFi modules. It surely is a radio that can be connected… everywhere! You can replace all your digital or analog (it also does FM, of course) radios, even your DV4mini hotspot with this single unit.
The initial release date was late 2016. Apparently this is not the case right now, with the release date being anywhere in the 1st quarter of 2017. Price is estimated to be in the range of $900-$1200. A bit steep but we will know if it’s worth it after its release.
