Hilberling PT-8000 – On? Off? or Maybe?

Hilberling 2010 Show Announcement

What is the status of the Hilberling PT-8000 Transceiver? Seems a resounding, umm…. maybe…..

Hilberling and TELEFUNKEN had announced a joint venture to bring the PT-8000 fully to market. Word in from a radio friend and corresponpondent at the Friedrichshafen Radio Show is:

Hello Steve,

while visiting Ham Radio in Friedrichshafen today, I went to the Hilberling booth. The cooperation with Telefunken Racoms is definitely off – the sales engineer was visibly displeased with my question :-)

I asked about the status of the transceiver. The reply was “you can order today, first units will ship in 4 months”. Manufacturing will be done by Hilberling, the sales engineer said that it was planned to involve Telefunken Racoms only in marketing otherwise (I had heard otherwise).

So again the radio is “almost ready” and the marketing partnership to bring it to market is in flux.

Here is the latest Hilberling cut sheet on the radio:
