Aye it won't be cheap I am sure, but nice to see a return to VHF and up dedicated multiband radios, rather than VHF/UHF, and possibly 23 cms being tagged onto what is basically an HF radio on steroids. :)
Once Shack in a box radios appeared, and of course came to dominate, the dedicated VHF and up single or multiband radios dwindled dramatically for quite a while.
