In a surprise announcement tonight, Ed Griffin of Import Communications (Wouxun.us) has abruptly ended sales and support of the popular Wouxun radios.
As one of the largest Wouxun distributors, Import Communications was selling as many as 500 radios per month, according to the company.
In an email to customers, Griffin indicated that he had been having difficulty dealing with the manufacturer in China. He also claimed that all Wouxun radios contain an “internal defect” which the factory is unwilling to address.
Griffin’s description of the lost memory problem / reverting to speaking Chinese matches my experience with two of my Wouxun radios.
Griffin wrote that he would continue to sell Wouxun accessories and is in the process of importing a new dual-band HT manufactured by Anytone.
