Powerwerx DB-750X: Polmar DB-50M

And while you are waiting on my report on the KG-UV950P, Hans has some more on the Polmar DB-50M / Powerwerx DB-750X. In short, he concludes:
"The Polmar DB-50M was a pleasant surprise. No major bugs or flaws; it’s a transceiver I might buy to replace my Kenwood TMV-71."
Hit the link above for the full analysis including a microphone mod to resolve the out-of-the-box TX audio issue.

He also has an image that lists the various models you could see for this radio. These cover the Powerwerx, Anytone, Intek, and Polmar brands.

Powerwerx DB-750X: Programming Kit

I just don't get it... $39.99 for the software and cable (plus almost $10 in shipping via UPS ground to me)! That really doesn't make me want to get my wallet out for the $300 radio.
