Digital 800+900 area, WiFi or Bluetooth.
Resistance is futile.

Totally agree :thumbup:
Thru-hole is good, SMD is good as well, but boring.

Might be the Italian or Ukraine market. RigPix mentiones these two low-VHF radios:

Dragon SY-5430
42.300-45.0875 MHz
For Ukraine market
http://www.rigpix.com/lpdmm/dragon_sy5430.htm

Dragon MX-430
42.300-45.0875 MHz
For Italian market
http://www.rigpix.com/lpdmm/dragon_mx430.htm

Maybe they are targeting something similar?
Sweden also has this weird 33MHz(?) band.

Googling the TTi TX-410 also brings up interesting results, and all from sites with cyrillic writing.
Some sellers quote it covering "30-50MHz".
There is also a radioscanner.ru thread about it, in which people talk about their reliability in taxi service on 41MHz.
http://lpd.radioscanner.ru/topic25736.html

This site has it on sale for 145eur:

This Latvian shop has it for 130eur:
http://www.expressshop.lv/en/auto-pasau ... tx-410.htm

Dunno if anybody needs it, but here's a manual for it http://www.radioscanner.ru/files/misc/file11705/

I sure won't be buying it, but interesting to see that such things are offered for sale.

Tis interesting indeed. I knew about the Italian VHF band but not the Ukrainian.

I wish Olga would use VHF instead of CB/HF. Not just for our sake but for there's as well.

Yep, that would be preferable. Less Taxi Tatyanas on on CB/10m and less interference to them selves from legit users of the bands.
There would also then be something new to hear on low-VHF during lifts.

I can get three out of five channels free nearby, but there is nobody on using handsets.

Doh, must notice last page of thread before posting!
my friend grafter, seems like you are using a very offensive tone in the reply.

Most HF plus 6 metre radios when "widebanded" extend the 6 metres section down to 49 Mhz and beyond, even the old FT690R 6 metre portable multimode covers it if "expanded", but I don't know of any radios specificaly aimed at the 49 Mhz band, that come as mulitimodes myself!
