    Right!
    They could have gotten rid of the RF Gain knob and put it into the menu as 'RF Attenuation'.

    Perhaps the RF Gain knob can be used as a clarifier if it has the correct resistance. Doubtful.

    At least they got the SSB radios going again.

    THNX, Booty . . .

    One has to assume that the MENU/OK knob will be multi function for mic/rit maybe?

    The specs I read had a "Delta Tune" listed as a feature.I'm assuming they meant clarifier . like they called the frequency display a frequency counter.

    Nice. No vfo though. Channels have to be fixed so it will be a freq counter.

    I doubt it's a counter but a frequency display like on the Cobra 29 LX.

    Price will drop within 6 months of it hitting the market. I probably won't be smart or patient enough to wait since I like the looks so much.

    I will be one of the idiots that will snap one up as soon as it comes available. :D
