*MARCH New* President Richard Available April / May

Guess this one could be more inspired for the USA market as 50 watts with 12/10 metre band. As we can see this is a CGI (Computer Generated Image) and the release date still far at the moment. Myself I like the analogue signal meter now that’s a change compared to all the digital out there. Some are calling the radio Richard II as you can see it’s not well informed as clearly shows Richard. PLUS the first Richard had SSB this radio hasn’t so its the first version hence not called Richard II.

And below is the old Richard

I’ve heard maybe it has SPAN so could allow functions like KC Shift. What’s strange is the words UK in the mock up. Maybe hides something or nothing as just computer generated image. Estimation of size looks around size of a Walker or similar.

I’m going to say it again! Poor Poor idea to add 12 metres AM/FM as NOT permitted worldwide and shows ultimately all the secrets from inside the radio. Not wise! And before I’m asked I agree the back looks like AT-6666 heatsink from what I can see from the above picture. Better advertise as 10 metre and leave all else undocumented.
