I have established why purchase prices of Chinese radios seem higher in China than on ebay. In China purchases attact sales tax. In Hong Kong there is no sales tax, hence the e.bay sellers are selling at a "tax free" price from Hong Kong.
Chinese radios made in Shenzhen are actually cheaper in Hong Kong than in Shenzhen! I am now in Shenzhen- I should have gone electronics shopping in Hong Kong! (Local people here in Shenzhen go shopping for electronics in neighbouring Hong Kong)
