After the dismal performance and high price of Wouxun's dual band mobile radio, I'm excited to share information about the AnyTone AT-588UV. I have been testing this radio for a couple of weeks and I'm impressed. I think this will be the Chinese dual bander that takes the market.

It's computer programmable and the control head separates from the radio via a CAT5 cable. This radio is easy to manually operate because there are no sub-menus and there are matching controls for the left and right sides. Either side can be set for VHF or UHF or both the same. It has dual receive (two signals at once) and when transmitting, you can set the off side to be muted if desired. It only takes a couple button pushes to set up cross band repeat. And unlike the other brand, this cross band repeat actually works! It has AM Aircraft receive plus 220-260 MHz receive (sorry NO 220 transmit).

The company gives me this time line for availability. They plan to produce a small run at the end of September and hopefully full production by the end of October. I suggested they make a larger test run because I've found nothing major that needs improving. I've made a few suggestions for firmware changes which they quickly approve. This company is interested in producing a good product.

When the AT-588UV is available to sell, I will send an announcement to this mailing list. The owners manual is not yet available but I have a list of the various functions. I will post this information on my web site as soon as I can. This will take you to that location.

This quad-band radio (10m, 6m, 2m, 70cm) is still being developed. I was told I could pick up my sample when I visit China in mid-October. The schedule for production has not been disclosed, nor has any indication of pricing been disclosed.
