The day my community uses Wouxun/Puxing products for ANY facet of community service is the day I move. AFTER educating the powers-that-be of the dire consequences of using sub-par equipment to protect their constituents.
But when it comes to these matters hams do not care about reliability or dependability or service or parts availability - 'cause the "price is right."
You get what you pay for.
