I've been away from ham radio for about 15 years and have lost track of what equipment is current manufacture and what is not.  Has anyone seen or have a database/spreadsheet list of radio models/manufacturers with beginnng manufacturing dates and if no longer made when they ceased manufacturing.  I've searched the internet but so far haven't come up with anything.  The reason is I am looking for used equipment but don't want to be getting something that is really beyond old.  Solid state equipment is preferred.  I know there is some good hybrid stuff out there too but it would have to be good.  Just wondering if such a list has ever been attempted.  I'm studying for my General and looking at some possible good 2 meter or 6 meter stuff, 10 meters is still pretty dead so I'll put that off for a couple years.

I've looked at that database and it has a lot of good information but the manufacturing dates or either not there or incomplete.  Sometimes a beginning year is given but not a date when manufacturng ceased so it really doesn't tell me what is obsolete.  Thanks for the reply.

None that I've ever seen.  The best bet would be to look at the ads in QST or CQ Magazine or go to Dayton and then you can see what is being offered.

Of course the K3 is the best.
