I just managed to buy a brand new Kenwood TH-D7A(G) from Andrews Communications in Australia, so there is still the occasional new unit around. Google Andrews...they may be able to help...good luck!

Sorry for the bandwidth, but I know this question comes up here
periodically. I've looked around quite a bit, but I can't seem to
locate any newer information about whether or not there are any
_current_ production HT's capable of transmitting on 2 meters while
simultaneously listening on the 437 downlink for use with the FM
sats. As far as I can tell, that answer is "no", but I wanted to make
sure that's the case before I go looking for a gently-used Icom W32A
or similar older unit. I'm tired of the "excitement" of having to
transmit in the blind when operating portable on SO-50! That got old
the first time I tried it late one night when there was no activity on
an overhead pass, had to try to switch on the TOT, then guess whether
I had actually done it correctly, etc...
Thanks in advance,
