Chicom CH-UVQ9 – 145/220 MHz

Seen on the UV-5R group: a Chicom handheld for sale on eBay doing 2 meters and 1.25 meters (220MHz band).

The official Chicom website does mention the CH-UVQ9, but only in the usual VHF/UHF configuration. When looking at the radios on offer, I recognize all kinds of models known to us under other names. The CH-UVQ9 for example resembles Puxing to the last detail.

This radio is something for my American friends to look into – 220 MHz isn’t a ham radio band here.
