I’m going to cover “Digital Monitor”, what it is, does, and why you should use it. I use an Anytone 868 & 878, but the general principle applies to all DMR radios with this feature or a “promiscuous mode”.
Digital monitor feature has three modes, “Off”, “Single Slot”, and “Double slot”. You can set it in the menus (Click on the “Menu” button on the Anytone HT and tt’s the first menu item when you select the Up button). Here, I’ll just be referencing the “switch” in that menu. On my radio I have a button assigned to change the mode it’s in quickly so I’m not fumbling around in the menus. I use this programmed button the most on my radios..
