    Wow, Steven, that's quite a antenna farm. In spite of all that wire in the air, I was most impressed with your top-fed 5400ft grounded vertical (!). Do you ever do Zoom presentations for radio clubs? My club is W0ERH in KC and always looking for interesting programs. You setup would certainly fit that bill. John.

    I haven't been doing any presentations it's really hard to see much out here since I took all the big rotating towers down.

    It's just miles of wire and big Old wood Poles/ not too impressive until you know what they do.
    I used to be a member of the Kansas City DX Club, and they always have a Hospitality room at Dayton and in the past helped Icom set their booths up/ fun days

    I think that employment ads has been on there for years

    Just clicked to buy the 8410 and nothing happens, it opens a COVID page. Thought it was my browser at home so I just tried it from work and same response....

    That's the new Alpha model, the COVID-19 Plus. All set up for SOER (Single Op Emergency Room).

    Seems like they are out of business....Just called to order the 8410 and all they had was a recorded message, then it said the mail box is full and not taking messages. Even if they are still in business do I really want to spend that much after getting stone walled on the phone.......

    What's the logic of having a website if you can't order from it? Or have a phone number if you can't talk to anyone, and can't even leave a message? I think they even have a running ad on the top of QTH.com or QRZ.com. Gotta cost them money...why bother? RUN, don't walk to another manufacturer.

    Agree with you on that, its nuts. They must have money to burn from some other venture. If they address those customers like they are doing to amateur radio market they would not have them long.

    I am so disappointed, the COVID BS is not a good excuse anymore.

    I think it's just the opposite of "money to burn."

    IMO they have absolutely no money to burn, otherwise the production shops would be up and operational and they'd be shipping products.
