I just received a TYT-MD390 w/GPS as a birthday gift. This radio is a VHF DMR device. I'm pretty new to radios and have no idea how to use it. My main goal was to listen to USFS Forest Net which i know operates on 171.47500. Beyond that little tidbit of info i am completely clueless. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take a look at the free software called CHIRP: [Click Here]
That along with the frequency database at RadioReference [Click Here] should get you headed in the right direction.

Hey BPF, not sure if Chirp supports that radio yet. I know it has been requested as a radio to be supported but can't tell if it got implemented to support. Best to download CHIRP and see (its free). Also, you can get other software from TYT for free that should work with that radio at this link here: [Click Here]
Usually the software from these Chinese Radios is frustrating to use at best. I also own a TYT quad band mobile radio and luckily mine is supported by Chirp so I am not forced to use the manufacturer software. But, for these radios, its better than nothing as programming by keypad can be super time consuming. If you just need 171.475FM receive, then it might be a much easier story to hand program it. Let me know how it goes. It looks like a really cool radio!

Winter can leave now... Lets try to get above 50 degrees???

Getting 'lake effect' from wind even if lake isn't full. I'm by the helicopter pads and have been experiencing same. Doesn't seem to be as prevalent when winds are calmer.

We are at the east end of the airport and the roof I am talking about faces north.

Hmmm! My deck is a 100' higher than the airport and cold air settles. Perhaps the slightly higher temps and the full exposure to winds does it.

Delj we have actually had dew 4 times now. When we open out window we see the neighbor's roof and we have been surprised how much "dew" we have had. Hubby will say "frost on the roof". when we open the window.
