Just ordered a new handheld: AnyTone Tech TERMN-8R Dual Band Radio.
The TERMN-8R includes built-in GMRS and MURS modes with 23 GMRS channels and 5 MURS Channels. The TERMN-8R is FCC Certified for Part 90 and Part 95 usage. The TERMN-8R is able to Transmit and Receive fully on Narrowband (12.5kHz).
The TERMN-8R is one of the most flexible radios available, it can receive transmissions on 6 Different Bands. It can receive on UHF (400-520MHz), VHF (136-174MHz), Aircraft AM (108-136MHz), FM Broadcasts (64-108MHz), Short-Wave AM (2.3-30MHz), and AM Broadcasts (520-1710kHz). Plus NOAA
The TERMN-8R has two built-in receivers (full duplex). You can receive two signals at the same time; you can even transmit and scan (or receive) at the same time! The TERMN-8R also allows you to use your radio as a cross band repeater (VHF/UHF or UHF/VHF).
and much more. Arrives to the K9ZW Shack Wednesday.
EDIT March 29th 2015
Got busy and the radio sat unopened. To my disappointment the radio is unusable, having been produced with a faulty antenna socket (lacks the required threads). Very suspect, as how could the raid have passed Quality Control? And how could it have even been tested once assembled?
The radio has gone back for a refund. I cannot afford to depend on gear that hasn’t even had basic QC performed.
