The TYT-UVF1 is available. It sells with a nice accessory package for under $130.00. I've had mine since June and I love it! Plus, it's type accepted. I got mine locally at a reputable dealer.

I strongly recommend supporting a company that innovates, and has been supporting us for many years. Purchasing from companies that thrive off of stolen technology by reverse-engineering, will only eventually retard the rate of innovative progress in the future of HAM radio equipment.

I have a couple Baofengs. I also have a Yaesu vx-6r. Save your money and buy once. The Chinese radios are junk. The big three are the big three for a reason.

You get what you pay for.  Wouxon seems to have a dealer/repair presence in this country, but it is still--in my opinion--a low prices POJ.  Also, I would rather buy from a manufacturer that plays fair, and the Chinese companies don't.  They flood our market with their low priced garbage, yet have the nerve to stop our products from being sold over in their country.  Some may say that Japan is just as bad, but they don't have the trade practices that China has--and that's a fact.

I have an HT but can't seem to find a use for it. Every time I take it w/ me when out say taking my dog to the park, there is no one on the repeaters.  Oh well maybe I'll just use it for a cordless mic and set my dual band 50 watt mobile to cross band repeat.
I guess it is good to have 'just in case' case.
