Add the word "quarterly" to that sentence fragment, and you have the 
real problem... no long-term development, no R&D...

If you have to develop and build a radio while keeping the rest of your 
company showing a profit EVERY QUARTER, especially if the company is 
publicaly-held (because investors have gone completely insane and aren't 
in it for the long-term over here anymore... for various reasons...) 
you'll never get much but the high-end HF rigs done.

Oh well, it's DEFINITELY off-topic, but nice summary of the problem Jonesy!
