Un-boxing trilogy-850



Quick video unboxing the trilogy-850, note when you hear the beep tone its because someone else was using the repeater (GB7HR) at the same time. On screen you will see BS-Time out, this also happens if the repeater cannot be reached to far away.


Plain cardboard box with the radio, battery 2 x antenna  programming lead, UK plug and battery charger, hand strap and belt clip!



Everything out of the box

Radio in the charger


Display, camera does not do it justice, its clear and right and fully adjustable.
Notice the clock (date can be found in menu) H high power, signal strength, sound, talk group and repeater.

Text messages sub menu, compatible with md-380 radio


Nice extra feature FM commercial radio receiver 


Another extra feature is the torch on the top of the radio.
