What cheap dual band DMR handhelds are worth buying, are there any that can scan the digital frequencies like you can with analogue or is that still a no go?

Anytone 868 / 878 are pretty good however it does scan very slow compared to a scanner.

None of them will be licence free. You can get single band PMR446 ones though. Hytera has some DMR Tier 1 radios. (Tier 1 DMR is the licence free tier.)
