Quansheng TG-Q5: Unboxing Video

In July I was hoping for a video and now we've got one. Here is the 409Shop listing. I would be interested in a VHF version of something like this. There are a handful of repeaters that I listen to most frequently, so a "lucky stone" in my pocket would be even better than a UV-3R.


  1. Seems pretty cool to me. I could see it coming in handy.

    One thing though, how do you know what channel you're on? Seems to me like a rotary channel control like you see on 16-channel portables would've made more sense in this case. All I can guess is that the radio has a voice that will say what channel you're on, but that's just a guess.

  2. Hi. I do have one of these and it does have a voice that announces which channel that you are on. The only thing is I had to change the setting in the program file to an English announcement rather than Chinese, but that was easy enough.
