I'd highly recommend the Anytone AT-D868UV over the Ailunce HD1.

The Anytone has much more functionality, it's near 100% programmable via the keypad and there are modifications that can be done to allow more functionality.

The HD1 feels like a good bit of kit but is a step backwards from previous radios under the TYT / Retevis badges.

I am with @CW-2E0UCW on this one, I would highly recommend the Anytone over the Ailunce.

The Anytone works pretty good for DMR Scanning, as soon as it stops on a DMR frequency it will decode CC, TS and TG as long as you have Monitor Mode enabled.

Keep in mind though, these will not scan at the same speed/rate as a conventional scanner, these are much slower but still very good for finding stuff.

Best search the Anytone UK FB Groups about that one - a fix was posted some time back.

There's also a post on how to wide band the receive side.

Purely out of interest, could you explain why?
I have a MD-380 and find the HD1 much better?

On the fly programming, vhf etc.....

I've been fortunate to have had the opportunity to own or loan radios from many manufacturers as I do code plugs for a vendor.

Overall, I use the Anytone more than others - it can be programmed via the keypad and has just been (in my opinion) much easier to program than the GD-77 and HD1.

My personal preferences are:

1) Anytone 868 - most functionality, program via the keypad, expandable rx, more memory and easy to program
2) MD380 and clones - all due to the "experimental toolz" and easy to program especially with the G6AMU code plug editor
3) UV380 and clones - improvement in case from the RT82/MD2017 and also easy to program
