I am guessing they didn't have it in hand?

I do not think they are out in the wild yet. I have not seen an FCC approval yet either. That will happen before they are available..

I am very excited to see what Futaba has in store for us whether it is the 32mz or any other products that is related to it

Actually posted April 2nd, Japan time. No shenanigans, it is real. Better check your sense of smell

Well it IS spring and these Georgia Pines have done a fine job of messing with my sinuses. Either that, or I'm just smelling myself. Shenanigans are known to follow me around like a shadow.

So no more insight on this radio yet? I might decide to move to the 32mz even though my 18mz is top notch. I would really like to see what the "differences" will be between the two radios.

Not in the last 5 working days, no. I don't expect to see much until closer to the release date. I'm watching the FCC site to see when it shows up there as well. They will have photos, etc. once it is approved.

We know so little right now I am not sure there is enough information to make an informed decision yet.

Nice to see that many 14 and 18 MZs out there are still alive and well today. I always stayed away from these types of radios because I feared no longevity (think cell phones). Can't wait to see what the 32mz has to offer....but really, how it looks/feels !

Well, when the photos first leaked it was mentioned that late May was the target for more info. So until then I'm not sure we can hope for much more, or to accuse them of being behind schedule
