When did that change? Maybe the quality has changed but it still irks
me
that this great country, for whatever reasons, cannot compete when it
come to most mast produced products. Ten-Tec is our last hope,
excluding
kits. I'm not suggesting a boycott of JA products, I think they're
great.
It just irks me to admit manufacturing defeat and I do lust for JA cars,
JA motorcycles, JA cameras & camcorders, JA TVs & VCRs and I own 3 JA
rigs,
an Alinco VHF, a Kenwood HF & a Yaesu VHF HT.

Merry Christmas es 72, de Art
