Anytone 878UV Analog APRS Beacon

Recommended Posts

I saw a few people having trouble to get their Anytone 868 / 878 to beacon correctly. Before pulling your hair out, first make sure you are on firmware 1.13 or newer. From there the one setting I had to use, which I still don't understand, is the destination callsign. On any other radio I have I can put pretty much anything in there. On the Anytone though I needed to have APZANY as the callsign. The manual TX is set short for testing and should be something closer to 300 if you are using this in a vehicle or 900 if you are unmounted usually. Also worth noting is with WIDE1-1WIDE2-1 my beacons were spotty. If you are somewhere remote, you may need to adjust this to WIDE1-1WIDE2-2. Hopefully this helps someone out.
