    Went to the Alinco.com site and it is gone! The Retronix (sp) site is still up, but the main Alinco site is missing with the website having been expired. Just a glitch, or did Anytone purchase Alinco? I do know that some of the Alinco H/Ts were being made with Anytone insides. Funny, I was just checking out the alinco site a few days ago. Any rumors, or just a case of someone dropping the ball?

    the Alinco.co.jp site is not coming up either. Brief flash of 404 then nothing. Weird.

    I get the same thing here. "Domain expired."

    Looks like it just got updated on 11/7/19. Probably 12 to 24 hours or less before it becomes "alive" again:

    Well, I can go for that. Although I really haven't seen a website "offline" like that. Maybe they are creating an all new splashy website...sort of a Re-Grand Opening, or something...

    I hope so! They're website was always very early 2000's looking.

    No serious company would do that. They'd redirect to a secondary site with a message about site down for maintenance, or something similar. And it shouldn't take more than 1 or 2 hours to revise the primary site. They possibly got hacked? Who knows.

    I had trouble bringing up their jp site. a brief page appeared saying 404, and then blank and refused to load. I dunno.

    Finally I can get their alinco.co.jp site up and evidently they sell scaffolding and exercise equipment. Didn't see any radios.
