At dayton, here is what I heard... they can no longer get about
a handful of parts.  The radio has been in production for 10
years!  Of the handful of parts, they have come up with some
substitutes for all but one of them.  There is still one tiny
chip transistor that has no substitutes and impossible to find.
Unless they can solve that problem, they are stuck...

They have enough for repairs, but not to start another
production run... Or something like that..  The radio was still
selling like hot cakes so they are frustrated at the situation..
