I'm expecting the radio to show up perhaps tomorrow (Monday) or by the end of this coming week.

I'll be charging the batteries on my Canon XTi and putting on my favorite 50mm f/1.4 lens to take pictures with.

If it sounds at all like I'm anxious - you'd be right...

Rob,

I think that the "flak" you are getting is based upon what customers want to know about a radio.

One of the first things they want to know is, "do i have to get this radio aligned and tuned right out of the box?"

the other members of this forum are saying that your review will not help them in this sense because the radio you receive will undoubtedly have been aligned by a professional technician.

so your review will be a good indication of what this radio will do after it has had a complete alignment and checkout, but will not be indicative of what the rest of the buyers will experience.

if you read my review of the Galaxy DX959, you will see that i took measurements of an off the shelf radio to give potential buyers an idea of what they might have to have done to the radio after purchase.

im not saying that your review will not have merit; it will. just not the kind of info that many of us would like to know before buying a certain chassis.

i too will be looking forward to your review of this new radio.
LC

Got an automated telephone message form UPS today.
They said the package will be delivered tomorrow and will need to be signed for.
So - in a couple of days the review should be on the WWRF.
Tomorrow I'm going to play with the radio - and throw it on a meter.
Need to talk to Bob's CB and Chris Holland on the phone and interview them as well...

BootyMon: As all radios are generally 'tuned' by the shop that one might purchase new, I just thought it would be fair to do it the way they feel was done most correctly. After all; at least it will be a reasonable assumption that the mfr can give their customers an honest expectation of what they are buying. I doubt very much that Chris Holland - RF Limited's chief tech - would make it into a bomb that will blow up due to tuning the output so high as to cause it failure while under review.

i agree rob , i guess i missread your earlier post . i just didnt want hand pick products that may not represent what our respective techs will have for a starting point to work on to start with . testing them at 4/12 watts pep really wouldnt be useful for the tx side of the review as you suggested .

thanks for the effort

ps , how about some pics inside and out tomorrow to wet our appetites befor the review ?
