The radio manufacturer files test results, photographs, operator’s manuals and more with the FCC before these products come to market. For instance: filings for the FT-1DR took place in 2012. This is where some folks get advance information about upcoming products.

NOTE: Why are there questions about where a particular radio is made? Each radio has a label on it which indicates country of manufacture. There are two reasons I can think of why this confusion might exist.

Scenario #1. The radio’s country of manufacture changes while in production. This seems unlikely, but it is not impossible. Right now I am researching why we have a discrepancy concerning where the 7250 is made.

Scenario #2. Radios submitted for pre-production testing might be made in Japan for instance, then made in China during normal production. I do not know this to have happened, but it seems very likely. The ‘pre-production’ radio might then have a ‘Japan’ label whereas the ‘production’ radio has a ‘China’ label.

I HAVE FOUND SEVERAL INSTANCES OF THESE DISCREPANCIES.
