Very low cost 70cm UHF handhelds

See  .
This is incredible: a 5W handheld for less than £8.

Looking on eBay, just £6.99 ($11) will buy a 70cms unit with charger from Singapore. Tell  me, how can ANYONE make money on these?

    This is indeed a crazy price. My review linked to here is quite old, and it might be good to give some updates:

    1. Phase noise is extensive, which is the cause of intermod problems.
    2. Harmonic suppression is excellent; 2nd below noise floor of analyzer
    3. Battery life is amazing.
    4. We developed a mod to fix the raw RX audio.
