Is it possible to buy a cheap transceiver chip with similar functionality to the RDA1846?

I'm looking for something else, because I'm wary of buying a probably counterfeit chip on AliExpress, and I got a message after I ordered RDA1846 on that site from another seller:

Dear friend, you take a picture of RDA1846S this product has been discontinued. Trouble you cancel the order

There is a REALLY cheap chip that has all the functionality of the rda1846, and is in fact is 100% compatible, with the same pinout and power requirements.

It is ... the rda1846: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/single-chip-transceiver-for-Walkie-Talkie-RDA1846-new-and-original/715898_694516758.html

You say you want a 'cheap' chip, well this one is pretty cheap!
