V689U = Kirisun S760/FP460 or V688

So that V689U I posted about yesterday... Hans put on his detective cap and thinks it may be the Kirisun S760/FP460. UHF only. Boo. Hiss.

UPDATE 14 MAR 2013: Or maybe it is a Kirsun V688. Thanks to tornadolaci for the tip. Title was V689U = Kirisun S760/FP460 - changed to V689U = Kirisun S760/FP460 or V688. The radio looks to be the V688, but the sample of the display matches what is on the FP460 page.

Hora HR-79D: Digital Mobile

More from Nate (with some notes from me in brackets):

A new mono-band (136-174MHZ) mobile VHF radio just got added to the 409Shop's plethora of radios, the Hora HR-79D ($296 USD). [Based on the picture of the box, I'm guessing the "V" in the part number is for VHF, but I don't see a UHF version.]

Some Specs:
- Analog mode, digital mode, mixed analog/digital mode
- FDMA modulation with 6.25K channels
- Super High security
- 999 channels with 20 Zones, each Zone with 50 channels
- More than 7 codes ID number
- Large programmable buttons
- Powerful, front-facing speaker
- Steps: 5/6.25/10/12.5/20/25/50/100 KHZ
- Output Power: 55W/15W/10W/5W

While the body of the radio reminds me of the Yaesu FTM-350, the most interesting feature is the FDMA modulation with 6.25K channels option.
I looked into it, and I suspect that since Chinese radios pretty much "borrow" everything Kenwood, these may be NXDN / Nexedge compatible.

Of-course if you would like a different brand on the same radio, there is the identical Luiton DG-78 and DG-79. [I was looking back to see what I had posted before about Luiton and note that Kight Radio had warned about "fake" FTM-350 radios being sold as Luiton FTM-350AR.]

Looks like the year of the Water Snake is going to be very interesting.

409Shop Teaser: V689U Digital Radio

The 409Shop has this picture on their site, but no information about the V689U. Grrrrr. I'm ready to see some of these Chinese digital radios hit the market.

TYT Digital Radio

Kight Radio has a sneak preview of a dual band digital HT. Not exactly an Android HT or even a version two, but worlds will collide.
