While we're talking about new rigs (see kenwood thread), what's up with the new Alinco HF radio? For the life of me I can't figure out why anybody would buy one of these. Who exactly is Alinco targeting? Are these more appealing in other parts of the world? Talk about ugly! http://www.alinco.com/Products/DX-SR8/ If they sell at a steeper discount than say icom or yaesu, then I can see the appeal, it's just the cheapest choice possible. At the listed price, however, it seems to me that there are much better choices.
