I recently ordered one of these mini radios and was wondering if others on this forum have experience with same.
A recent review of these in the German magazine Funkamateur reveals that the spurious suppression on VHF is dramatically poor and way, way below minimal requirements. I'm no expert in FCC rules, but 25dB suppression will certainly not pass FCC requirements by a large margin.
I believe this high level of spuri will attract acctention of the enforcement folk.
Conclusion: while some Chinese radios are compliant (or would be compliant if they would be tested), some are not. The Baofeng UV3R is on the other end of the scale. If you mind keeping your license, please test with an analyser before you transmit.
Of course, your mileage may vary.
