Back in December I got an email from the folks over at Anytone who said they’d be shipping me a new 5888UV once the bugs are all worked out. Just wanted to let everyone know that I haven’t abandoned the cause to review these great radios. Cheers JD

Final thoughts on the 588UV – ” Pre-Release Version “
