From my friend John Miklor the Baofeng Guru’s Facebook page
Buyer Alert. Beware of eBay fraud and mislabeling.
I did a search this morning and found vendors selling what looked like and are branded as Baofeng BF-F8HP radios.
Read the fine print carefully. The description states they are two power (Hi/Lo) 4/5W radios with and 1800mAh battery.
A true F8HP is a tri-power (Hi, Med, Low) 1, 4, 8W radio with a high capacity battery.
Please Note: This is NOT intended to identify specific vendors as being fraudulent, but rather a Buyer Beware. . . . . . . Read EVERYTHING carefully.
Shipping costs to return a radio back to China exceeds the price of the radio.
I highly recommend buying from a local vendor with local support for peace of mind.
