About April or May of last year I noticed that the full duplex HT's were
disappearing from the ads except the Kenwood TH-D7(G). Then about June or
early July that one started disappearing as well. I found that Ham Radio
Outlet (HRO) still had them on hand and I ordered one right away. A couple
months later that was no loger offered at HRO and that's pretty much the
last I've seen of them.
