    Thank you very much for your review, I look forward to your
    In-depth review .
    I think it’s great that companies can still see a market in AR
    I think Purchasing a new transceiver is different for everybody we all have different requirements and ideas of what a good transceiver should be like. What I have seen and read so far I think this little transceiver will be just great for my applications I’m not worried about not having an ATU and I’m not concerned about not to not having a battery pack internally. I think back to the old days where just to have a radio with short wave was a real bonus now we expected it to have absolutely everything at a price we could never build one ourselves for.

    I am looking forward to receiving mine and I’m sure I will have a lot of fun and pleasure using it with a good Mag Loop out in the field down under.

    Takahashi Mewlon would be a great substitute, hi.

    My wife has a camera that she can take photos and videos of most of the planets. But it was not made in Russia. We don't support our nation's enemies.

    Do you have an iPhone? , it is made in China, like many other "American" products, do you remember the x15 ?, American astronauts on the ISS ?, they go up thanks to the Russians ...

    the 705 is expected to sell for over $1000 USD. If you could share the dealer name selling these for $400. - I'd love to place an order for 2 each....

    He didn't write it would be $400. He wrote "+$400" which means about $400 more.

    And it may be more than that. I see HRO is taking reservations with the announcement the price would be "under $1500" but they don't actually give a price.
