This new and dirt cheap mobile transceiver is causing quite a buzz: a 10 Watt VHF or UHF mobile for around $70 almost sounds too good to be true. Most – if not all – information about this transceiver has been collected by Brick ‘O Lore, and his last post mentions the first impressions of an early adopter. It doesn’t look bad at all.
For now I don’t have any intentions to pick up one or two, but that might change. I hope someone will look at things like sensitivity, front end quality and spectral purity soon.
A look at Leixen at DHGate.com shows a lot more models from this company. Some of these models are well-known and available with other brand names attached to them. You almost can’t miss the Baofeng BF-666S/777S/888S for example. It makes one wonder if Leixen carries any original designs at all.
