L-tronics is still around. http://www.ltronics.com/
Here is a link to a few different options from other Manufactures. http://www.cap-es.net/es%20electric%20technology/DF%20Unit%20Gallery.htm You can scroll down to see all the different items pictured. Only the VK3YNG (Viking) Sniffer 4 DF and the ACR Vecta 2 DF are still available new. You might be able to locate something used.

The site was last updated May 2015. The company is not making or selling any DF units, and may be officially closed by now.

+1 I called them and spoke to someone when we were shopping for the MK4 - no production scheduled and no
longer repairing old units.

We discussed here before that CAP, as an organization, still has a major mission of direction finding, and
no official source of the equipment required to prosecute that mission.

L-Tronics is OUT OF BUSINESS! I just checked via email and that was their reply. What a shame, another small business gone.

They wanted to finally retire.

They have been out of business for three years or more. These are not news...

Welcome to CAPTalk - spend some time with the search function before posting, you're likely to find
information you need that way.

Great job, Bob. Let's just run them off after one post now.  >:( A PM would have been much nicer.

Lt Col Crowe:  welcome to Cap Talk. Glad to see that you're still around!

Please bear with the usual social skills variability (you know the drill, right).

Best,
