    GOOD CATCH!

    I wonder if they are just waiting for a response to see if they do produce them?

    I see the AM model is already schedule for release in December but nothing noted on the SSB

    WHERE THE F%#@ is the clarifier!!!!!??????

    It looks fantastic!!! Today it does not have SSB. I saw that it has Talkback so looks like Uniden has sold out and has not integrity at all. I am going to guess it has been filling the pinch from some of the export radio's being used on 11m???

    Now if Uniden could build a 10/11/12+6m radio with 100w RMS key it and forget it reliability at the price point of an RCA 2950 or a Magnum 357. IN a compact chassis no larger then the Old HR2510 or smaller! It would be even better if they built an all band HF rig with continuous coverage RX/TX. I could see them disabling 11m and would be fine with that but non-USA markets would want that. Sell it for 1/2 the price of say a similar capability Icom.

    It is not like they have been a real player since they did away with the old design Grant XL and have not be a real force in Armature radio in a long long long time. They used to build such a rock solid and durable product!! It would be nice to see them get back in game!!
