    The Japanese were given the technology that allowed them to invent the big 3. China steals what they invent. By the way, China’s economy is slowing.

    That made me laugh. I work in a powdered metal tech shop with presses up to 100-ton. We operators have a running joke about how our "maintenance" department thinks a press overhaul only involves fresh grease, new flywheel drive belts, and a fresh coat of blue paint.

    TNX for the QSL w/ me & the EBN Kevin, glad we helped w/ the demonstration... Lol and the Video!
    I agree with your view with "IP" Theft of open source project(s)/ patient protected commercial sourced gear!
    I used to investigate Hacked and Forged Cloned parts & system instrumentation for Navy & FED use.. Not a Joke.. Great way to showcase such "IP" Piracy.. Always an on going issue for systems developers, engineers & Government(s) trying to protect their economic well being.

    My opinion on the FCC 'clarification' is that it is a bit heavy handed. But the point is that we HAVE to stop the influx of non-cert hardware. Otherwise you will have terrorist comms, jamming, and a general free-'for-all of the airwaves.

    The Ailunce is basically a KX2/KX3 with a spectrum scope. It also has 15 watts, which puts it right on the edge of making it a QRO exciter. Its cheap. It has a lot going for it--because it steals a fellow ham's efforts, and is not imported with the same process as other rigs, such as Yaesu, JVC, Icom.

    If PRC can't play by the rule of law then the hardware should never make it past our border.

    The PRC has allot of free labor in their Laogai system. I try not to buy anything made in the PRC even if it costs me more $$$ not to. But unfortunately there are some goodies that are only manufactured in the PRC.

    Personally I've been loyal to Icom since 2005. I just like they way they do things.

    And it's not that I've never purchased anything from Kenwood and Yaesu. They make nice stuff also.

    I don't see myself buying anything from Ten Tec but I sure hope they flourish. Nor from Flex or Elecraft.

    The Chinese economy is a mirage painted by their lying government, building widgets on the backs of their slave population working for pennies. An educated people will be their undoing. And that goes for any third world country experience newfound prosperity. As far as the US is concerned, well, there is a forum here to discuss other than ham topics and even there it would accomplish nothing. Way too many politically incorrect hot button issues involved.

    IP is not protected by law. Patents are protected by law. IP is protected by secrecy. If the designer has their products manufacturered by those that understand this difference ... good luck. Oh wait! Wat? Are K2 & K3 being builit in Asia?

    I have been authorized to operate a MARS radio station by the USAF.
    I have had a long list of frequencies outside of the ham bands that have been instructed as for use in the operation of such administrative traffic.
