Retevis RT87 first writeup

As I managed to get a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime I was able to get free next day delivery and the Retevis RT87 arrived the next day, interestingly the Raspberry Pi I ordered the same day as the radio to run my websites from arrived the same day as the radio so I had a lot of work on but was still able to start some filming for the RT87's outing on YouTube.

The radio itself certainly feels like it was well made despite its Chinese origins, a nice clear LCD display, audio sounds good, not sure on transmit yet as I am working on that, and also not sure if it truly will get away without being overloaded by pagers or any other strong signals but we shall see.

I am not going to write up too much about the radio as I am still filming on and off and have yet to get to the outdoor tests, this will be on my days off next week as the weather has not been right for it this week, however I should have the video up soon, also I have done the power tests but can't reveal too much on that until the videos are up, I don't want any spoilers now, do I?

Due to past abuse and the ongoing issues that left me little choice to reduce time on twitter and IRC I have taken the decision to keep comments disabled indefinitely, apologies for this
