Can't find what the pricing on anything is going to be... am I missing something?

I don't think they will release pricing until tomorrow.

Great! - Thanks for posting. I'll be there and plan on buying a VX8r.

I can't tell what's on sale online. Seems like the same prices. Is it just icom only?

I just called them. basically the prices are the same as they are everyday. There is no special pricing even though their web site says there is. My experience with HRO is consistently bad.:mad:

Edit: I called the New Hampshire store and the Yaesu FT-857D is an additional $25 off today.

I just was in the Denver store and bought the VX8r and various assessories. All were on sale.

I went to the store and bought a Yaesu FT-857D, a dipole, antenna tuner and a power supply. I will use this as a base for now and eventually add an HF antenna to my 40 and switch the 857 between the house and the 40 (just like Nathaniel does).

HRO was very helpful. I am glad I had a positive experience.
