That's a lot more information than we had before, and it seems to back up 
what a lot of vendors are listing - they expect to be able to meet existing 
orders but are not taking new ones.  Thank you for taking the time to check 
and to post this.

AES had a few left in stock, so I ordered two of those.  My wife is going to 
like it, and it's kind of ideal for our radios to be identical in terms of 
memory, software, etc.  I'll pick up a couple of the 6-cell AA packs next 
week.

Thanks again for the information and 73!
