Wouxun Price Increase?

One of the two Eds that sell Wouxun radios responded to a query about seeing a 40% price increase in the Wouxon HT's with this:
"Mine will go from $100 to $140ish and for a dual band radio like this that is not really unreasonable. We're just selfish and spoiled. They produced a great radio at a great price and now we will have a great radio at a good price. Prices go up. Salaries went up 30% in China. What does one expect? Look in your favorite retail store and TRY to find something made in the U.S. Now try NOT to find something made in China."
If you are thinking about getting one, you might want to do it now. Of course, if this happens, and they are considered too expensive, I would expect another Chinese manufacturer to take their place... perhaps a Baofeng?
