It is too expensive already. Internally it is pretty much the same radio as the Alinco DR-135UK, which was being sold for £100 not long ago.

It is called progress. (Aparrently)

If they brought back any of the favorites like the old Lincoln, Jackson, Richard (PB010AC version) and Grant they would sell like hot cakes.
