Lisheng UT858 mobile radio

A new mono-band mobile radio popped up on the radar screen: the Lisheng UT858. I kinda like the military look. The radio spits out 50 Watts max. and comes in four flavors: 136-174 MHz, 350-390 MHz, 400-470 MHz and 450-520 MHz.

According to the listing on the price will be around $150, which does not include shipping. The radio isn’t anywhere to be found on AliExpress yet, which (in most cases) means that you can’t buy one, at least not with any kind of buyer protection.

On the Alibaba page the following payment methods are mentioned: L/C (Letter of Credit), T/T (Telegraphic Transfer aka bank transfer) and Western Union. Neither of these three methods are safe, so beware.

  1. I like the fact that this appears to be a cost effective single band radio with a removal faceplate, something I have yet to see to date. Hopefully the price point makes it cost effective.

    • I agree. Also, it appears to use the kenwood commercial 6 or 8 pin mic. That should mean we can plug in a good mic, something that the Chinese radios seem to lack.
