A new mono-band mobile radio popped up on the radar screen: the Lisheng UT858. I kinda like the military look. The radio spits out 50 Watts max. and comes in four flavors: 136-174 MHz, 350-390 MHz, 400-470 MHz and 450-520 MHz.
According to the listing on Alibaba.com the price will be around $150, which does not include shipping. The radio isn’t anywhere to be found on AliExpress yet, which (in most cases) means that you can’t buy one, at least not with any kind of buyer protection.
On the Alibaba page the following payment methods are mentioned: L/C (Letter of Credit), T/T (Telegraphic Transfer aka bank transfer) and Western Union. Neither of these three methods are safe, so beware.
