The toys? The Alinco DX-R8T and Alinco DM-30E power supply. Both items shipped from DX Engineering in Ohio (USA) on 20 May 2020. The equipment arrived in Malaysia on 4 June 2020. Both parcels sat in Malaysian Customs for nearly two weeks due to Public Holidays and Covid-19 related delays.
Now as for the equipment, I've powered up the radio with the power supply and all seems to be perfect. I've yet to thoroughly scan the bands, which I definitely will be doing in the days ahead and will offer my first impressions in future.
