I have no inside track with Baofeng , so reasoning ?
Counterfeiting as they apparently claim , or disassociating from earlier products , or ?
For me the issue is the company seems to be more interested in packaging than actually making real improvements ..
I mean , just how many UV-5? do we need , its almost a fashion accessory .
I would love to see a updated UV-5r .. One that has actually been electronically improved with improved firmware ...
I know , the GT3 MK2
But for the price of the GT3 , Im looking else where ...
The $75 to $100 price bracket has a few interesting radios to chose from ..
Main problem is sorting the chaff from the facts ..
Still cant find a decent Puxing PC-UV9R review ... ( @ $76USD shipped its more interesting than a GT3 )
