Interestind replies so far -- I purposely left out SGC and Ten Tec since they are smaller players in the market, but Ten Tec definately deserves their reputation as a customer service leader in the industry -- not to mention their radios are great -- although some think they are not to "modern" look...

I take it back -- I love Alinco -- we all fixed. My previous rant was uncalled for and I was an asshole. Fuck me and that shit -- I am sorry to have defamed Alinco before they could fix my shit.

Waste-o-time

It was nothing more than Rochester-lite (minus Avon Beauty Products and other such stellar Rochester-vendors)-- with the flea market folk packing up by noon and taking off -- WTF? From what I saw on the tables it appears I did not miss much -- unless all the good shit went early. I was not in need o...

Getting emotional

I will hold back the tears and be strong as I continue. Nessman, check the price fo the Yaesu 2800 versus the price of the Alinco 620. Now tell me good sir, likely a fellow member of the Elks or Moose, what conclusion you come to. As for college radio, I dislike the format -- jazz in particular. Sur...

Alinco

No, I am not reviwing a specific product but simply raging at the brand and my dismay at their changes over the years. Nessman, I used to worship your well-placed words, photos and such -- but now I wonder if in fact you are a proponent of CW, Take Your HT to Work Day and assorted nonsense, because ...

Alinco - WTF

Does anyone know WTF is up with Alinco. Back in the 90s they had a decent rep as being the Hyundai of the ham radio world, not the prettiest or best working model, but it fucking got the job done.

Light bar sexy

I saw the dude with the silver car and rear lightbar -- I remember him because I was leaving behind his car! What is too funny is the dude actually put the light bar on as he drove slowly through the parking lot amongst the flagmen -- as if - to let us all know to be careful as he went 2 miles per h...
