Just for clarification, the FCC didn't cite the Baofeng company or any manufacturer of Baofeng radios.  This action applies to one specific distributor, Amcrest Industries LLC d.b.a. Baofengradio.us.  All they have to do is stop selling this radio within 30 days of the notice and they will face no monetary fine.  I think this matter will unfortunately not have an appreciable impact on the availability of Baofeng and other related radios here in the US, but I am glad to see any action taken at all around this issue.  It's definitely a step in the right direction.
