DM-1801 Discontinued?

Post by radiopheen » Mon Nov 15, 2021 6:27 pm

I heard a rumor that the Baofeng DM-1801 is being discontinued, by my source is pretty crap. Wondering if anyone can confirm or has any additional information? Thanks!

Seems unlikely, but perhaps its been superseded by the DM1801A, which is basically the same radio, but with less buttons

Does OpenGD77 support the DM-1801A?

Of course, it has been discontinued. Still available on the market, but superseeded with newer models, not covered by OpenGD77. It's replaced with DM-1701, DM-1702GPS, DM-1706, even DM X-GPS.

Does anyone know or recommend a site to buy this model of radio (Baofeng DM-1801)? I tried on AliExpress, but it's really hard to find...

Alibaba still has listings of vendors selling DM-1801, with minimum order quantity of 2.

However, they price is probably higher than a GD-77 direct from Radioddity.
