Kenwood Leaving Amateur Radio?

Rumors are swirling, when Kenwood was noticed missing from the Dayton Hamvention. It was reported that Kenwood has decide to step away from the Amateur Radio sector and focus on the business unit.

It is certain that the global computer chip shortage and cost increases are playing a large role in the decision.

As of today, there are only 3 transceivers on their Canadian site and 8 mobile and station radios on the US site.
