Opened my RadioUser magazine this morning and went to the back 4-5 pages and saw that once again we are due an invasion of Chinese rigs. However these are now Vehicle and Mobile rigs, capable of 60 Watts FM.
Furthermore they are designing radios that will be Dual band 2/70 but also the most exciting rdaios are the ones capable of 66-88 MHz. S0 with some 14.4v Lipo Batteries, we may very soon be able to do some QRO on 70MHz from Summits.
The rigs are called ‘Anytone’ made by company called ‘Qixiang’ I simply googled the latter and clicked on ‘In Car Radio’ Link and up came the Rigs!! Not sure when they are due to hit the U.K. Shores but it would seem that in RadioUser they estimate an RRP of £110!! 70 Mhz model number is ‘Anytone AT-5189’
Will probably be lighter then any PMR and capable of greater power!
Just thought I would let people know
