Touted in some quarters as the Lincoln II / Alinco DR135DX killer (check websites) December will see the arrival in radio town of the Maxlog 8800 (v10-11-12-13-14)? in a new skin with another seller and this time it will be called the Magnum1 from RF Limited
What do we know so far? Some information is listed below as is the manual:

Export Mode: 25610-30110 OR 24.500-25610 selectable from the radio front panel..
Great to see the start on 12m, forward thinking. Adds to the few that have done this. Optima, Stryker, AE5890EU and i think not so many more have added this option to there radios?
And with all amateur radios it comes with programmable Roger bleeps, echo and other goodies you’d expect to hear on 12-10 metres.
Price is not known at the moment, delivery time seems to be scheduled before Christmas so maybe this will be here on the blog as the featured radio for the Christmas season, last time was the Grant II i think or the Walker or Jackson II Chrome i cannot remember.
Personal Note: I sit here and wonder how many of the radio haters will go ahead and buy this one? Or will they sit quietly as wives, mothers, husbands and girlfriends wont allow them only to say that they are smart and know it will be not well made so never invested a penny, but can talk the legs off a horse about it anyway..
