MTR3b_LCD (7/28/20): We are nearing the end of the current production run of the massively popular MTR3b_LCD. There are still units available for purchase, but once complete, we expect a delay of several months before they will be available again. The COVID-19 situation has taken a toll on our supply lines as well as international shipments. Due to this, we will be limiting the remainder of MTR3b_LCD’s to US Domestic customers only. It is our plan to offer the MTR3b_LCD again and hopefully in conjunction with the new MTR4b (see below).
MTR4b (7/28/20): LNR is still working with Steve Weber on a reintroduction of the MTR4b. We are contemplating offering some new features but will announce those once we have confirmation. The COVID-19 situation has lengthened the timeline, but stay tuned to our website or the Facebook Mountain Topper group for information when we make it available.
MTR-SSB development: (12/6/19): We regret to inform that the new MTR-SSB transceiver will not be released as planned. In most simplest terms, there are some technical limitations preventing operations when extending it to the 40M/20M bands. The 80M/60M bands for the emergency communications interest is not affected. The minimalistic nature and outstanding reliability in all of the Steve Weber KD1JV Mountain Topper designs are well documented and will not be compromised which I’m sure everyone appreciates. So while we are all disappointed, we are gauging interest in the 80M/60M version in 2020 and are considering special single band versions as well.
EndFedZ Antennas (Acquisition): LNR is pleased to announce that the PAR EndfedZ line of wire antennas was acquired by Vibroplex in 2019. Customers can purchase these antennas directly at their website at Vibroplex.com. This move is a positive for both companies and we are excited about the future going forward.
W4OP Loop: Unfortunately, as part of our streamlining in 2019, we halted production of the W4OP Loop antennas to devote our entire attention on the very popular Mountain Topper transceiver line. The W4OP (remote and manual controlled versions) are phenomenal antennas and would be a great product line for another company or interested entrepreneur to pick up. If interested, contact LNR.
