Interesting discussion.  I notice a Canadian distributor with prices
on the web site.  A quick trip round the site looks like $240 for
rs-pro+1 radio and a box.  Not sure about power supply.  I'm presuming
CDN$

And they aren't too far from us.  So I've contacted them.  Let's see
if they want to chat.
