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.

Quansheng TG-Q5: Wisdom

People have pointed out the "Lucky Stone" label on the Quansheng TG-Q5, but I think it is more important to consider the deep, philosophical message that is also on the marketing materials (see image below):
"Infinite realm begins from communication."
 Either they are talking about radios or prayer. Given the lack of an obvious speaker, microphone, or display, I am going with the latter.

Quansheng TG-Q5: 409Shop

Anonymous pointed out that the 409Shop has the Quansheng TG-Q5 for $38. I wish they would release a video, so we could see more of the radio in action.

Quansheng TG-Q5

Maybe we can soon have it all. We can get tons of features thanks to Moore's Law and through the miracle of SDR. And we can get some snazy looking radios like the Quansheng TG-Q5. Hams will never have been so well dressed.

Credit to Hans (PD0AC) for finding this radio.
