£280 is based on today’s exchange rate. And with DR135-uk selling £99.95 and all Brits crying rip off Britain and wanting cheap could be hard sell in uk.

$390 Check online and radio ranges from $270 till $367 so not so much different to USA

  1. Amateur radio is zero Duty rated in the UK, and I would imagine that is the same for the rest of the EU (harmonisation). VAT is payable whoever imports it, of course if you’re importing a radio that is only being charged at £100, then VAT is (roughly) £20 of course if you try to charge £200 for the radio then the VAT will be £40.

    What advertising, and I don’t mean putting it on your shop website or getting write ups on blogs, I mean paid for advertising.

    £300 for an 11m set, don’t say it covers 10m & 12m, I don’t know of any Amateurs that use this sort of set for 10m & 12m.

    And it comes out of a Chinese factory. I understand that you run a blog, to entertain people and bring them news of new equipment that is becoming available, but you can’t defend overcharging.


    • “Entertain People” nope that’s not me. I looked online yesterday and saw in the USA the same radio for $356. That’s with nothing to add more than sending from USA to USA address and / or conversion to free-band mode. So $34 cheaper than Netherlands at today’s exchange rate.

      Many emailed me, many wrote I’ll buy it when it’s around €140.

      My point is you cannot always get something for nothing. Will it sell for that price? I don’t know. Will it sell in uk for that price? I think not. Meaning how many will pay that price of course,
