Some notes on the TYT MD-UV380New

Eternally under construction

The MD-UV380 is a new mid-2018 dual-band variant of the popular MD-380. Web searches do not yield much information about the radio. In my opinion, the manual could be improved. The folliwing items are notes and observations made since purchasing the radio in July 2018.
