What we heard out of Dayton seems to indicate that there is a replacement
planned, but they don't have the go-ahead to work on it. That means time
for development and time for construction.
The new Yaesu is unproven and won't be available until late July at the
earliest. I don't think the Bluetooth options will be worth it, and I
wanted a radio for my wife that is close to the display on the D700A she is
We picked up two of the D7A(g) radios at AES out of Las Vegas. They are
out there but they will be getting harder to find now.
