As usual, the Weierwei radio is also available under another name: FDC (Feidaxin). Model number is FDC FD-890 Plus.
The VHF version is only $59.90 on eBay (shipping not included, and not available for NL). I didn’t check for better deals; these are just examples.
*edit* For NL, use this link to a seller in Hong Kong: g8hkshop. Price +/- € 58, and they include an extra, longer antenna for free.
