These things have been around for a while...known as the $30 Amazon 2-way radio gems. HAM enthusiasts tend to disdain them...but also keep 1 or 2 around because they couldn't afford not to. I bought them because I've been conditioned to buy stuff I don't need before bans. The FCC is banning the sale of these things (effective 30 Sep 2019) as they are configured today because they are capable of transmitting on more than one band (as I understand it). Possesion is not banned. I don't intend to transmit illegally.
