I am quite interested in buying the Alinco DJMD5TGP as it seems like a full-featured radio for a low price. And I have already started studying for my Technician license so I can transmit. And then I ran across this article, which seems to state that the radio does not comply with everything it should. Granted, the article is almost two years old, so maybe it's not relevant anymore. Should I be concerned about buying this? Even Alinco's website says in red text that the DJMD5TGP "is not an amateur radio equipment." Would I be alright as long as I stick to the frequencies allowed by a technician license? Anything else I should know about so that I don't unknowingly break the law?
By the way, this question may be a duplicate of Is Baofeng illegal in the U.S? If so, I would appreciate an explanation as to how it will answer my question. I have a lot to learn.
Thank you for your time.
