Where do you get that price from? I believe it does not include an
antenna. It also does not include usb so you have to derive the power
from elsewhere.
By the way, China is going the way of Japan in the 50's-- cheap low
qulaity becoming cheap high quality. It is not clear that "American
made" carries an advantage anymore especially since it most are now
assembled in China/malasia/vietname/... anyway.
