And how is Kantronics supposed to insure that the TNC will only be used 
on UHF ???    If it was this cheap, I'm sure some would also (horrors) 
be used on 2M.....

As would be a D700 for $200 or a TS-200 for $500, but realistically it 
just isn't going to happen, especially for products sold into a low 
production-volume niche market.
