    Amazon was selling these for $13 in the US. The price has now gone up to $35 with a 40% off coupon available.

    They are:
    - UHF-only.
    - 2W max.
    - No display.
    - 16 channels in 1 zone.
    - Non-standard antenna connector. (M3 screw, I think)
    - Uses a Baofeng programming cable but picky on the serial chip--I could only get a cable using the CH340 chip to work.
    - Does Tier II and works with repeaters and MMDVMs. (Can do simplex too.)
    - Both Part 90 and Part 97 approved.
    - Also does analog channels, but no VFO or on-radio configuration, must program analog channel as one of the 16 channels.

    For $21, I see lots of experimentation ahead. In the Seattle area these are the hot new toy.

    The CPS software is...adequate.

    They also have a couple higher models, I haven't tried those.
