Just received this from Ed at Import Communications:
Wouxun has released a limited number of the mobile radio to dealers. These samples are not FCC Certified yet and do not have the required 2.5 kHz tuning step required for 2013 regulations. SO THE RADIO DOES EXIST.
If no major problems are found when testing these samples, hopefully full production will begin in July.
The costs of these samples are higher than I expected but hopefully the costs will come down when the radio goes into full production.
If you have your name on the reserve list at www.wouxun.us, you will be notified by email when the radio is available to order.
