AnyTone AT-5888UV: Moleculo Review Finished

moleculo Wrapped up my review of the new Anytone AT-5888UV chinese mobile VHF/UHF #hamradio @, Mar 13 20:53:05 from TweetDeck

His conclusion is below, but read the article to get all the details.
"If you need a full featured VHF/UHF mobile radio for under $300 that includes programming software, this radio is for you. If you can spend another $100 for a radio, the Kenwood TM-V71A is a better all-around radio without the harsh RX artifacts while including support for external interfaces like a TNC. I will likely keep this radio as an inexpensive, use-anywhere radio but would probably recommend the TM-V71A as a better buy for most people."

  1. I have ordered my mobile and should get it within the week. I like the idea of being able to access public service frequencies (legally) as part of ARES so this for me is an advantage over the TM-V71. Plus, I am cheap (frugal?) and have had good luck with many of the Chinese HT's over the past several years. I will see if it lives up to my expectations.
