A Baofeng HF radio for $180?????
« on: May 17, 2015, 12:58:17 PM »
This is very interesting. We all love the Baofeng HT radios for the robust features and the killer pricing, but now it looks like there may be more to come from this company.
It seems we will soon be seeing some HF rigs from them. Rumor has it that the will be an all band 100 watt HF rig for $180!!!!!!!

if it SDR and no controls on the radio itself,
then they might be able to sell it for that low of a price

neat to see that they bought Tokyo High Power
