Albeit not so new I guess but now seems to be shipping in larger quantity is the Motorola SMP 908 which I guess if you look at it seems the same as some Alinco, Anytone and others from Qixiang radios. And who is the maker of this one? Guess we know it. And most importantly it has the 6.25KHz step.
Priced around £144 so in the same ball park as many others it has 200 channel programmability, 440-512Mhz frequency range in this version the “U12” but there is indeed also available a VHF version. Power comes in at 40w, 25w and low power of 10w so good enough for making those calls.
