    You're kidding me?
    Of course, you will need to review it after you get it . . . hehe . . .

    EDIT:
    Just ordered one. Wow; 25w and a programming cable? Just hope the receiver is better than the Baofeng. But at half the price with many xtras, gonna put it in my mobile and pull out my Yaesu.

    I hope this is a misprint.
    Receiver
    Sensitivity: 0.25V / 0.35V

    They still have them available. Click on the vendor name and see what else is listed. I pulled the trigger on one. When a Chinese company starts to market an item they have no idea what it is worth and put it out there and gradually increase the price until sales slow down a bit and that's where they sell.

    It's not the receiver sensitivity that concerns me. It's the receivers adjacent channel rejection that one should be concerned with. The Baofeng has no adjacent rejection. If you don't have it set for a repeater and use it on simplex; it will even pick up the NOAA weather freq's when on 146.520mhz; some 15mhz away!

    But for a paltry cost of ~$16, I can use it for local UHF/VHF repeaters and have at it in the moblie and not moan about it . . .

    These aren't CB type of radio and would require at least a technician license if you transmit with it.
