Actually the KT8900 is being worked on . It is in the same family as
the UV-5001 and UV2501. I have them both. I also have a MINI-8900
(which is basically a KT-8900 with a fan). Pavel is currently helping
me with the UV-5001. It has been tricky to read from and write to
reliably. I already have the UV-5001 mapped out. Once we have reading
and writing issue solved, I don't see it taking long to make the
UV-5001 available. Then the UV-2501 and similar radios like the
MINI-8900 (there are several) shouldn't be very far behind.
