    I agree with this statement and I hope that everyone who has this attitude about an HF QRP rig also has the same viewpoint about hotspots, antennas, and other items that are made BY Amateur Operators, otherwise it's a bit hypocritical.

    As far as the YouTube show "pushing" this radio, I suspect one would be quite out of touch with new products on the market because I heard about this Ailunce version several months ago.

    Thanks or expanding:)

    When the FCC takes action it is definitive and global.

    I cited the 'pocket jammer' example because they and their use disappeared because of extensive government enforcement. Quickly.

    There is no subtelty when enforcement kicks in. Better not to buy illegal imports at all rather than write them off later.

    Yes I was agreeing with the comment about supporting a fellow ham though. I didn't mention anything about illegal imports, but of course I do agree with your statement there also.

    I have one here I got from him a couple of years ago, it's a nice radio that most hams should be able to build.

    Just can not purchase china made radios they seem to be trying to under cut the sale of our long time brand name radio equipment.
    The steal intellectual property and are getting away with it for now.

    IMO warranty could be a problem. If a complete radio doesn’t work it should be repaired or replaced. If a kit doesn’t work it could be easy to refuse warranty service under the pretext that the user broke it himself during assembly. Even if we are talking about fully assembled and tested boards that just need to be putted in a case.

    Very interesting video. The rig looks sound and appears to work very well, but I am concerned with the rip-off of the fact that it was designed and published has open source with the caviate of it not to be used commercialy. If M0MKA has licenced Ailunce the rights to manufacture the radio then that is a different matter. I'm no leagal expert but it does bother me that this is what we are getting more and more now. Thank's for the video. 73 de John - G0WXU.
