Well from the Yahoo Newsgroups on the FT 5000 came the blurb that there were some new pictures of the 5000.
I headed over to the Universal Radio Website and checked out their website and heres what I found. As always thanks to the good people at Universal Radio for having such a well informed website with lots of great pictures for us to drool over…

Between the 5000 series of radios, the new soon to be arriving FTM 350 dual band APRS Mobile and the updated VX8DR its going to be an interesting time in Dayton this May.
Not to belittle some of the other Manufactures I will also mention that Icom has a couple of new radios coming out as does Alinco. Nothing new from Kenwood I can find yet but I’m willing to bet they will be well represented at Dayton as well. I am doing some research for a blog series on the new Icom line that will be out in the near future.
If what I am seeing is true with the radio manufactures fighting for our money, tempting us with new radios could it be that the tide is turning and our economic recovery is starting or is it just no matter what the cost… We want new toys…
