Low cost, good quality!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have a "sample" of the two meter version of the hand held transceiver. This transceiver is not FCC type approved but is soon to be released in the USA. It's 60 watt mobile brother, the AT-588 is already sold here.
Not your typical Chinese HT! Very well built and it compares to my Yaesu FT-50R, not so much in features but build quality! Very solid feel and well thought out! I have seen other Chinese HTs and they look like cheap FRS!
Of the features, this HT has your basic functions found on most, plus.... some good ones! A voice announces the radio has "power on", low battery, digit entry in Chinese or English with a slight accent.... FM radio receiver that actually sounds good and mutes with any two meter activity.... Three level menu that is easy! Speaker / mic input.... Three color back lit LCD display.... 128 memories with DTMF CTCSS encoding.... 4 to 5 watts out with supplied 7.4 volt 1300 mAh Li-ion battery.... VOX.... Available in 440 and part of 220 mHz.... Drop in charger.... Decently written manual.... Most unusual is the built in LED flash light and it works well!
Should be released this year (2011) and I feel it will be a good value and low enough in cost for anyone!
