Re: FT-847 discontinued?

Back in August when I was contemplating what  to buy while waiting for my 
radio money to come through, there were FT-847's selling left and right on 
E-bay. Some were at really good prices and looked to be in excellent shape. 
Ultimately I stayed true to my Kenwood roots but if you have your heart set 
on the Yaesu, you might try E-bay. Just be sure to get a late enough serial 
number that the CAT issue has been solved.
