I bought one two weeks ago at HRO. It includes the charger that the radio bottom slides into. The radio was made in Japan, by the way. Some folks have indicated they're now made in china, but the brand new one I got was still a proper Japanese unit.I read somewhere on RR.com that the ft-60 now includes the desktop charger. I cant find the thread that i read that on, but i was wondering if it was true. Does anybody know for sure?
