TYT TH-9800: Rumors of its death...

Rumors, perpetuated by me nonetheless, of the death of the TYT TH-9800 may have been greatly exaggerated.

Chris pointed out the Andrews Communications site has the TYT TH-9800 as coming available in March for   $399AUD ($416 USD).

Ed from Import Communications provided some more specifics along with the timeline as he sees it:
"My samples for the TH-9800 will ship early April and mass production will begin in May.  I'm not sure if they will be ready for sale by Dayton, but I will at least have one on display... I had one on display last year.
And the coverage for the TH-9800 are as follows 
HF:    RX/26-33MHz;TX/26-33MHz
VHF: RX/47-54MHz;TX/47-54MHz (Optional)
VHF: RX/66-88MHz;TX/66-88MHz (Optional)
VHF: RX/108-135MHz
VHF: RX/136-180MHz;TX/136-176MHz
UHF: RX/320-399.995MHz;TX/350MHz-390MHz
UHF: RX/400-512MHz;TX/400MHz-470MHz or 440MHz-512MHz
UHF: RX/750-950MHz
I have not verified the "optional" VHF ranges but I'm guessing there will be different versions for different countries."
