    Hmm, looks interesting. CTCSS, split operation, it appears to have a VFO as well as channel buttons like the old Lincoln.

    The echo and 10kc slide however make me think its not a new board. Why have a 10kc slide on a radio with a VFO?

    Wonder if the display will be unreadable at most angles on this one too?

    It has FM at least. Look at the display on the far right side it indicates it's on FM.

    Also it's on 26.7906 which tells me it has 100hz tuning increments like the old Lincoln/2510.

    I will be SHOCKED however if Uniden has ANYTHING to do with this radio, so it may have some features of the old Lincoln/2510, but the expectations may never be met.

    Well the answer to the first part of your question is Fall 2013.

    I a skeptical about seeing them sold through U.S. vendors however.

    I had some photos which I put on twitter and President went bananas as did not want it showed. I deleted them and 2 days later the radio appeared on there site. Since then have over 130 PM on you tube and many requests from people on facebook.

    NO its not Uniden

    AM/FM/USB/LSB

    The 6 with the line under appears to be memory channel 6

    I think the display on the photo is not correct as channel 16 is not 26790

    Not sure on price in euro, think will be high

    PC Programmable Don't know yet

    VFO Mode, maybe but don't know yet

    The maker is famous for making other radios like the STRYER ( those who remember the video ) and I think will be something like an old Lincoln with new bells and whistles.

    If it has no VFO, and the 6 with the line under it is reference to a memory channel, then it shouldn't have the Lincoln name on it.
