How Cheap?

Think £20 for a dual band handheld is a bit too much? Well how about £9.36 for two?

If you look through enough search results on Ebay for Baofeng radios (either the UV5 or the BF888 single band 16-channel) you find the odd one on sale for ludicrously low prices.

Here are UHF handhelds for under £2 each

At this sort of price, even if the battery or the radio was faulty when delivered, the other half would still be worth the money as a spare.
