    More Chinese Stolen reverse/engineered Inferior quality §4iT
    Want a quad band ? FT-8900R is an awesome transceiver! R&D by Yaesu, QC by Yaesu.
    The Chinese are masters at reverse engineered/copycat products. Everything from Knockoff Nike shoes to Louis Vuitton handbags. The US seizes millions of $$$ of counterfeit products originating in China every week.
    I have a friend that works for US Customs, some of the stories?? You couldn’t make it up.
    The Chinese Military is so large, and technologically advanced, it’s scary. Funded by ..........Americans and others that buy their crap.
    Don’t cheap-out.......
    Think about the big picture before you spend money on counterfeit Chinese transceiver
    Yes, the price is attractive, I get that!
    I also im acutely aware that hams are (for the most part) cheap.
    Yes, the Big 5 are a little more. Because your paying for R&D and QC. That R&D is always looking to make cool new stuff for you to drool over at the ARRL annual convention.

    Yes, more 222 MHz stuff would be nice!
    Want 222 MHz SSB? get an Elecraft XV-222 transverter, they’re awesome. I’ve built several!
    The price on knockoff Chinese transceivers cost more than you know. I believe a little character - integrity in ham radio would go a long way.
    Don’t support theft of intellectual property.
    I know there will always be a handful of hams that don’t care about anything but themselves.
    Anyways......enough.

    I agree with your ideal.


    But..... I fear that horse left the barn quite a while ago.

    I see the big "3" Japanese manufacturers with "made in China" stickers on their gear more often than not. So sticking with traditional brands is likely still funding C-H-I-N-A! :(

    Interesting radio, but.

    What's with the "stun and kill" function? Maybe for radio thieves?

    Interesting to see this in here as 'new' when it has been available in UK for years AND has recently been listed as 'discontinued' on MLS website. There is a 'PL' version (covers 4m instead of 10m. not much use in USA) but that is not listed as discontinued it is listed as 'unavailable - new model coming'.
