Is DMR Radio REAL radio?

Is DMR radio REAL radio? As Digital Mobile Radios (DMR) gain in popularity, there are some that question whether or not DMR radios are real. Most DMR radios offer Digital and Analog (FM) for accessing your favorite local repeaters. Radios like the Radioddity GD-77 offer VHF/UHF. So why does this question come up at all.       Ham radio operators. Ham radio operators over the years have found a niche that they are comfortable in, and then stagnate in that mode. Whether it be Digital computer communications, or SSB HF. Their are always those that are going to balk at the new modes coming out. This happened throughout the history of Amateur radio. If it wasn't for the advancement we have made, we would still be using spark gap generators. My QTH is DEAF! I have always enjoyed CW operations, using ancient transmitters and receivers. These tube type radios are fun for me to operate. Would those be considered real radios. DMR radio DO operate
