Anytone Apollo II “On Air” *New Video Added*

Dave M0OGY has got his hands on the Anytone Apollo II. This radio comes in legal CB format as the CRT 2000, Team Expert1, Optim Voyager and others whilst it’s high power relative will come into Romania as Avanti (Model Unknown) and Stryker SR-94HPC shortly


The CB versions will run 4 watts in multi-norm versions and a quick easy modification this changes to 4/8/15w whilst the Avanti & Stryker will be variable to 45 watts. So a lot of difference. I’m asked already where M0OGY bought his, please ask I don’t know! Guess would be Nevada will have it (but I don’t know)

And how Dave sounded at the other end of the QSO

People talk endless about how much better this radio would be with SSB fitted. But cost of developing this, resellers not interested to invest in the R&D and a pricing point which would be more than the 5555,6666,5555N and others it wouldn’t sell. Add to this for UK Brexit rises of 18-25% more again would cry “rip off Britain” 

You hear the voices now “I can buy an Anytone 5555 for £130 why would I waste £170 (or more) for this one?” Answer, it’s been taken away to stop you the pain or worry

So, take it or leave it really!! Plus remember it could come either in VHF or UHF format further along the line.

Thanks Dave & Mark DrAwesome for the tip!

    • Hi Scott,

      Try this manual I’m not sure if better or not? http://tinyurl.com/j92rbov And yes the split and band are in Ham or rU mode and disabled in legal format is my understanding. Good that you like it! That’s of course the most important as money spent etc etc
      Hope the manual helps or at least is better or the same?
      Best Wishes
      Simon
