*New CB* Nanfone UCB689

Not legal across the European Union but the world is large with different formats for CB. Nanfone have launched the UCB689 which covers the channels which are legal in Australia, New Zealand. They’ll possibly release a version compatible for the United States frequencies of GMRS & FRS frequencies. Just need to wait.
