Shi Ying: SR-31

If I said I was excited about the Shi Ying SR-31, it would be a huge understatement. It is a Chinese dual-band (2M/440), dual-display, dual-standby handheld transceiver. Don't understand my excitement yet?

What if I told you Shi Ying was Chinese for Griffin? As in Ed Griffin of Import Communications. Ed's about to release a new radio and he's putting his name (in Chinese) behind it. I like it.

He gave me a little information about what's going on and some of the features of the SR-31:
"I'm having a Chinese company make a dual band ht for me to my specifications. Features will include 2/5 tone and the ability to add/remove a channel from the scan lineup via the keypad. Unlike many other Chinese radios, when scanning, this radio will skip over channels that don't contain matching CTCSS tones. Many others will stop on a carrier even if the tone is not present. The brand name is Shi Ying, which is a Griffin in Chinese."
Check out a picture of the radio and the cool company logo below. I like the tag line "Chinese made, American inspired." More information about dates and price when I have it.
