I'd like to find out what the original sale price was in for the TH-78A in the early/mid 90's, or better yet the MSRP when these HT's first came out. 1992? 94? Old back issues of CQ, QRZ etc just might have prices listed (before the "Internet Mystery Price" which became the standard sales tactic once the Web got to be the standard sales medium. I remember my old TH-79 was somewhere around $475 new, but I just can't remember what the dash 78A went for...... If somebody could scrounge up an original receipt for their TH-78A (in an insurance file maybe) that would be ideal! I'd really appreciate any info on this!
