    Been around 6+ years. Wasn't this an unauthorized rebranding by a distributor in eastern Europe?

    probable since I see they are very sold with the fake "kenwood" in russia, ukraina etc ....

    It's been 6 years, but if you search with GOOGLE, still sold on many websites in Eastern Europe ... and it seems Kenwood is watching, very strange!

    Doesn't Baofeng sound like "Bad Thing?"
