Slowly but surely more Chinese mobile radios enter the market. The latest radio is made by Baojie, and if you ever owned a Yaesu FT-8800/8900 you almost can’t miss some similarities in design. The BJ-9900 appears to be the follow-up of the BJ-UV55, which is a simpler radio. Baojie didn’t make the mistake to use the inferior SO-239 connector, but used N instead. The radio is cross-band capable.
You can select nine display colors, there’s a scrambler (voice inversion), and the must-have (cough) compander. Price indication: $300 (including shipping). A review sample is on its way.
