Kenwood.  Yes, they regularly have someone lurking on their reflector 
that has good information and they share it with us.  Yes, I've had 
them send me free parts when I spoke to their engineers about a 
problem, and they occasionally do warranty work after the warranty 
expired on me.  This is my personal experience over the last 15 years 
of owning and operating some fine Kenwood gear.  (I will note the 
exception that about 15 years ago, Kenwood service in Cerritos had some 
management problems that resulted in a personal friend of mine being 
treated very badly...)

I appreciate the smiley face :-) but still, every once in a while, I 
like to mention that (at least for me), Ten Tec needs no defense and 
needs no comparison to the big three amateur radio manufacturers.  I 
find Ten Tec gear as the right tool depending on the job I have, and 
this does not depend on the failure of brand X radios.  I don't have to 
think they're awful in order to appreciate my Ten Tec rigs.

Just my two cents.
