    You need to do your home work. The rights to this device have been purchased my Ailunce, improved and updated and for sale around the world.......

    Why are we being directed to a ripoff-of others'-technology site?

    If Chris has LICENSED to AILUNCE, we should not be looking at a ripoff (that is NOT Ailunce)...

    We would not even KNOW about the ripoff if it wasn't made 'amateur podcast' featured.

    If we are to respect the spirit of innovation in ham radio, we need to respect the inventors and their efforts to bring it to us. It's hard to make, and all too easy to steal. If you want people to CONTINUE 'to make', then don't buy stolen goods (i.e. IP stolen).

    For those that do not know, IP does not mean IP address, It Means "Intellectual Property". Part of the Issue the administration is concerned with China

    The software is open source of I'm understanding correctly that it's this. https://github.com/m0nka/mchf_dsp Licensed as GPL so they need to contribute back any changes they make but anyone is entitled to use it.

    I don't know about the hardware.

    M0MKA sez not open source hardware 'commercially'. IOW if you want to buy it, he has licensed to Ailunce (apparently) and that is the rig one should buy.
