    Couple of videos showing up on You Tube of the first models making their way into Europe.

    It's a smaller variation of the Alpha 10 Max / CRT type versions although the board looks modified/sized down and the radio is a much smaller in size.

    Humm, a radio that will fit in the dash DIN slot, that took long enough to come out with.
    I wish they would lose the echo and put a Mic gain in its place.
    CW mode included and no RF Rain lol
    Not bad, wonder where the price range will fall....
    Thanks for the post.

    Currently listed in Europe as 289 euros

    Will probably be a $225-250 radio here.

    It would appear that you can program the Mic gain with the software, also frequency splits, and so on, I am surprised it will not cover 12 meters :(

    On Edit:
    You can set the mic gain using the buttons on the face of the radio and the menu, good deal.

    So it should fit the dash of a Subaru Outback in place of, or below the factory radio?
    How wide is it in mm or inches? I wonder if it will fit in a TS-50 bracket?

    Made by same company that makes Anytone's as well. There's discussion between a US company and the factory on importing some to the USA right now.

    A few months ago it was rumored that Alinco helped in the design process.

    Эй IMD262:

    Is that your radio? Do you like it? Did it come properly aligned or does it come crippled from the dealer? Bet those metal covers on the tuning coils are a bear to remove if you need to tune it. Had the same problem with the RCI-299DX - ugh!

    I watched the first video.

    Man, either he has something locally generating that hash or it needs an alignment bad. Noticed it was about the same on SSB.

    Mmm.

    I wish I was still in the Air Force. I was in Europe several times a year. I could check these new rigs out and bring it back with me.

    Mmmm, need to find a local Airman.
