These small dual band radios just became available on ebay and elsewhere. They are cheap and perform that way. Very difficult operating/programming, not intuitive at all. I had mine for a few hours to evaluate it, and then boxed it back up and returned it to the seller. Radio does work, but you won't like the way it operates. The deviation even on wide is very narrow and you will have to scream to be heard. The DTMF function which is much much louder than the mic audio requires a menu visit, a number entry, and then key the radio to transmit the data. Not good for us US hams in a mobile.
Save your money for a real radio (my opinion) 
Product is in production.
