AnyTone AT-3318UV-A

I had not seen much from Ed at Import Communications. Now I know why. He is ending his relationship with Wouxun. He is selling off his current inventory of the Wouxun KG-UV6D for $109.95 (inc free AA Pack).

And for his next big announcement, he is introducing a line of AnyTone radios - the AT-3318UV. (Astute readers will recall that Buddy asked me what I knew about this radio in July. My answer was not much.) I suspect these will become more popular just because of the visibility that Ed will bring to it.

First off is the AT-3318UV-A for $99.95:
  • 6 Watts VHF
  • 5 Watts UHF
  • 136-174 MHz & 420-520 MHz & FM Broadcast
  • Wide Band & Narrow Band
  • 2.5 kHz tuning step for splinter frequencies
  • 5/Tone encode and decode
  • 199 Channels with Alpha Tags
  • Squelch level adjustable for each channel
  • Squelch tail elimination
  • CTCSS that really works - when scanning channels, radio will stop ONLY when CTCSS tone is present
  • VFO Scanning - frequency limits can be set for both VHF & UHF
  • Channel Scanning - scanned channels can be ADDED or REMOVED via the keypad
  • Frequency Reverse button - exchanges TX & RX frequencies
  • Talk Around button - sets TX frequency to repeater's output frequency
  • Programmable by computer
  • EASY to manually program
  • Keypad totally lockable to meet FCC Part 90 requirements

There is a Yahoo Group setup for the AT-3318UV.

I'll post more as I learn more.


  1. I thought this might be coming soon, but I had no notice of it either. I'm sorry to see Wouxun finally being over on Ed's site, though the writing's been on the wall, kind of. Still, it's the end of an era. I know Ed's been pretty fed up with them, and I sure hope his relations with Anytone go much better. My one dealing with Andy at Anytone was very positive, anyway. I, for one, will be watching this with interest, and who knows, maybe an eyes-free guide will be forthcoming. (I'm sort of working on one for the Puxing PX-UV973, which has no affiliation with Ed at all.)

  2. Thanks for the info, I had read something similar on Hans' site earlier this week. I'm thinking about picking up one of these Anytone HTs from Ed since he has them on sale.

    1. Let us know how you like it!


    2. I can't take this serious. 6W on Vhf, 5W on Uhf, and if You follow the link under the "AT-3318UV-A for $99.95:" button, it says 5W Vhf, 4W Uhf.
      I know it does'nt matter with the last 1W, it's just not serious to advertise in such way.
