Radioddity sale

Post by 4I1RAC » Mon Dec 02, 2019 4:49 am

OpenGD77 got me excited over my supposedly basic GD77, so over the weekend, I ordered a handful of radios from Radioddity.com -- GD77 with extra battery for $69, and several GD73 + hotspot for $109. I might resell some of these to local hams who don't have DMR yet (and convince them to turn to the dark side). You guys might want to check it out.

You can use the 15 percent off code 2019BF for an additional discount on top of the bundle prices. The site also gave me a personal code "FRIEND-R26NB5W" although it's just for $10 off, and I'm not sure how many times it will work.

I think the GD73 plus hotspot is a great deal since you basically get the hotspot or the radio free for that price. Too bad there's no custom firmware for the GD73 yet, but who knows, in future our experts might come up with one, too.

I have a GD-73, but there will be no chance of any custom firmware, because the radio does not have a separate CPU.

It uses an updated version of the C6000 DMR DSP chip called a C7000 which contains an unknown type of CPU core inside it.

The GD-77 firmware binary does not appear to be encrypted but I tried putting the binary file though several dissassembler programs and nothing seemed to decompile it to assembler.

The company who make the HR-C6000 and HR-C7000 etc are highly secretive and do not release data sheets for their products.
