consumer electronics prices may be going up

Here's a thought-provoking article over at The SWLing Post blog:

Possible changes in tariffs and increases in small-item postal costs are mainly behind this.  I don't think any of this will break anyone's bank account, but if you've been thinking of picking up some FRS walkie-talkies or an AM/FM/SW radio, soon-to-now may be the time.  Or at least in the next round of after-Christmas sales, which are only a couple of months away.

It's a distinct issue from the Great Baofeng Panic of 2018, but I'm sure the two will somehow eventually become intertwined.
