Infinity Gear at least implies that they make their P-1000 radios, too. 
  They're actually made by Puxing in China.

Now I *think* the person who loaned me the GISteq unit said that it was 
a GISteq person's name on the patent for the thing, but I don't have 
that patent number.

The situation gets even worse in Asia - it can be almost impossible to 
figure out if you're talking to a manufacturer or a trading company, 
even if you get to tour the factory.  And several manufacturers can be 
producing the same design with minor variations in materials or components.
