One of the people on this list that was at Dayton reported that Kenwood 
was discontinuing it because they could no longer get certain 
semiconductor parts used in the D7.  Apparently they had enough parts on 
hand to fill current orders but no new ones.  [This inability to 
continue to get key parts killed the Pocket Tracker a year or two ago.]

Rumor has it that a successor model to the D7 is in the works.......
