We received word today that Alinco is back up and running and product began shipping today ... We received word of several price reductions as well as announcement of the launch of the HF SDR DX-SR9T.
George, that's great news! It would be a shame to lose a company like Alinco from the ham world.
I've got one of those little 2m HTs from Alinco, swivel antenna, 340mw, three AA cells ... must be 15 years old now, still works perfectly despite being left out in a rainstorm once. I keep it on hand because in a big power outage, having equipment that runs on AA cells is VERY convenient. DJ-S11T, I think? Great little radio and it was a bargain at the price, too.
Thanks for the good news about Alinco! --ken ac4rd
