Ditto on aesham.com. I bought mine from AES Orlando. Be sure to call the store first to make sure they have it.

Don't even bother calling Universal Radio as they are perpetually out of stock of everything. They ain't the Universal I loved so much ten years ago. :(

Well I just ordered one from HRO. I hope it is worth the money. I will use it mainly for my dual band Yaesu VX-5 HT but also for scanning with my Pro-97 and 94.

That's some bull**** right there! I've had the exact same antenna on BACKORDER from Universal Radio SINCE MAY 2006. They said there's a good possibility Diamond will get them to Universal by Mid-September and I should have it by the end of September.

As you can imagine, this is pretty damn frustrating to say the least...

Well I haven't received an email confirming shipment from HRO yet. Their website showed that it was in stock. I know they are a little higher than other online ham stores, but they at least show if their items are in stock on their website, ship fast and are always willing to help you out when you call.
I NEVER order anything from Universal, as everytime I've placed an order through their website they have ALWAYS been out of stock, no matter what the item was. They suck.

NEWS FLASH:

I just got off the phone with HRO and they said my order is processed and I will receive a tracking number shortly.

The News Flash is that the guy on the phone told me that HRO in Atlanta has PLENTY of these antennas IN STOCK.
So if you have been waiting to buy one, Ham Radio Outlet has them!

I ordered the Diamond NR770HA from Universal a few months ago. Had it in two days.

I DID have to wait a couple of weeks to get the programming software for my Yaesu HT and the cable to hook it to the PC, BUT, I had the radio in about three days when I bought it.

the reason diamond was on backorder was because of the military. it seems they
love these antennas and they buy them in the thousands.

I ordered a Diamond NR770HA from Universal on 8/24/06 and got an e-mail that this antenna was back ordered until September15 2006 and that it would be shipped then. Looks like that may be a stretch. :lol:

It even looks like I'm getting charged $4.95 on the "back order shipping fees" I have not gotten an answer on if this is where I pay shipping for their back ordered items to be shipped to them or not. :confused:
