Reports from Dayton are that Kenwood has a D-STAR tri-band handheld under glass in the booth, along with colorful brochures. None of my sources are reporting on price or availability, and the documents all show “Tentative”. Never the less, this news along with the development going on within the dv4 group are pretty exciting!

UPDATE: Tom KJ9P on the ground in Dayton reports that the model name and number haven’t been published yet, but it should be available by year end with an MSRP between $500 and $700.
I also had a D-STAR conversation with Tony N8NNX as he was walking the floor at Hamvention regarding the dv4mobile product. His inquires came back also with a 2016 availability date and prices between $800 and $1000.
