    Effective 1/1/2012, Yaesu will split from it's parent company Motorola, after four years of ownership. In the U.S., the company will be known as Yaesu USA, while going by the name Yaesu Musen internationally. Motorola will retain the Vertex Standard Land Mobile Radio product line, while Yaesu will contain the Amateur, Aircraft, and Marine products.

    The ARRL has a press release here.

    Think that will have any effect on them riding the P25 horse as mentioned earlier this week?

    No, since they just made their big digital strategy announcement yesterday. I do find it interesting that both announcements were made almost simultaneously, though. Probably just a coincidence.
