Well, well, well,...

Would anyone care to take a look at the front panels of the Pofung/Baofeng BF-9500, or the Anytone AT-588????

Yeah, that happens a lot with China made radios. A bit of caution is in order as external looks aren't a sure-fire way to determine sameness. There can often be those pesky firmware and other differences. In this case, my guess is that they are very strongly related radios. If I had to choose between any of them, I would take the Anytone; barring any established reasons to the contrary.

I've heard but don't know for certain, that some of the Chinese mobiles are clones of a Yaesu radio.

Any update here?... has anyone been able to try programming the MXT400 or LT-590 (with Chirp's TYT9000 settings or otherwise)?  I'm very interested in seeing if the MXT400 might be programmable, since I need a powerful Part 95 certified radio but its limitation that the CTCSS/DCS (PL) tone is the same for TX & RX is a deal breaker for me, as our local repeater has different TX & RX tones.
