    I have been shopping for a transceiver.
    It seems ALL the Kenwood transceivers have been discontinued by the manufacturer when I look at the listings the retailers have...

    All we have to choose from is Icom, Yaesu and the assundry CCR radios?

    Not true! I just left the HRO site, and several transceivers are available.

    Because of a global shortage of chips, some amateur, consumer, automotive, and industrial equipment may be delayed though.

    They have already left quite a few markets, Australia is one of them. The writing is on the wall for Kenwood and its only a matter of time before they get out of ham radio entirely, but that day is not today.

    Nor is it likely to be anytime soon.

    o_O I have been hearing THAT for the last 50 years...:rolleyes: I'm sure it's a "Samuel Clemens-ism...:p" Or, perhaps about 16 days late?:confused:
