The FCC just released Public Notice DA 18-980, Enforcement Advisory No. 2018-03 Dated 24 SEP 18 that states: TWO-WAY VHF/UHF RADIOS MAY NOT BE IMPORTED, ADVERTISED, OR SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES UNLESS THEY COMPLY WITH THE COMMISSION’S RULES. This is a huge win for the big 5! Personally I'm please with this decision. Baofeng, Leixen, TYT, Wouxon and all the other cheap Chinese stuff and the copy cat transceivers will be banned! Flooding the American amateur radio market with Chinese electronics (mostly stolen technology) is bad business. It hurts everyone. I want companies like Yaesu and Icom's R&D to keep coming out with new stuff, it's difficult to compete with a $35 dual band transceiver when the market is flooded with Baofeng crap! Being involved with public safety (firefighter) I've been opposed to amateurs having keypad programmable 136-174 and 406-512 transceivers, this has already been a problem.
