I have one on pre order from Mikado USA
Is there any issue getting one from the USA?
There shouldn't be, it will have FCC certification so will be fine from a radio emission perspective. Your buggest issue will be if you get duty applied when it is shipped as it is well over the $1000aud threshold.

Muzz,  The concern I saw (and I dont say issue) is that the radio import will likely attract an import tax and possibly a customs clearance fee as well, and may make the unit more expensive than simply buying here in Australia.  Lack of local warranty was my other concern....

Thanks Wizza 

I understand I will cop import duties but the alternative to getting one here I don’t like and would pay more to avoid that 
Warranty I guess is a slight concern but even if bought here I’m sure it would be sent OS to be repaired
