Ten-Tec Now Part of Dishtronix

Amateur radio amplifier manufacturer Dishtronix has purchased the assets of Ten-Tec from RKR Designs, which had acquired the company just last year. 

According to the ARRL Letter, Dishtronix owner Mike Dishop, N8WFF, says his plans for the company are "strictly long-term," and that Ten-Tec production will remain in Tennessee, at least for now. 

His early plans for the Ten-Tec product line include firmware upgrades for various models and to start up manufacture of updated Omni VII+ transceivers. Dishop also instituted a minimum $140 fee to troubleshoot a radio returned for service, noting that it was necessary in order to "bring Ten-Tec back to a sustainable state."
