So cheap you just have to buy one! According to the the listing it’s VHF or UHF not dual band. Thanks to Steve G1KQH for the tip-off.

  • Bob - W9WTF:

    Looks pretty good. High power only 10w. Would be fine for local work. Thanks for the info.

  • Chuck Heath, K6ZIZ:

    But did you notice the SHIPPING cost is more than the radio itself?

  • Larry KI6ZQY:

    When I view it, it was not more than the radio. The specs say VHF, but display shows UHF.

  • Bruno W6USC:

    Looks like you can get a vhf or uhf model
    Total price with shipping is about $68.00
    10w output. Might get one on uhf can be a good gmrs radio also
