Last time i checked the FT-847 was still available at some ham retailer in 
Canada and here locally. I can check and confirm with our local retailer here 
privatly "off list" if i received some request.

With the present USD VS CND shrinking conversion rate (The lowsest in 14 years) 
don't wait to long for your cross the border buys. There is actually 13% 
between both currency. (i remember paying up to 32% not too many years ago)

BTW i saw a FT-847 at some hamfest here (about 90 minutes from the border)the 
last one i remember was at 1300cnd and as usual open to discussion...
