Flex and Anan have both stopped production of their small (read affordable) radios. Flex says it's a parts problem. I didn't ask Anan. What's up? Some of us can't afford 3 or 4 K for a radio.
I think the main guy at Apache posted to their Yahoo group that there were indeed parts problems.
That may be a shaky memory- but it seems correct. I've got no special knowledge or connections- that's just what I remember being posted.
