Since so many QRPers have a keen interest in HF and 6m handhelds I've decided to forward the announcement I received from Nobuki Wakabayashi, JA1DJW, at Tokyo Hy-Power Labs. This will be the very last production run for the HT-750. If you are unfamiliar with the rig please see http://www.mizuhoradio.com/personal/k7vo/thp/ht750.html

Dear OM & YL,
Re : Tokyo Hy-Power HT-750 & Accessory
Thank you for waiting long, ladies and gentlemen.
We are pleased to inform you that HT-750 , HF H/H, is now ready to ship. This time we have run just 100 sets only , of which half the quantity went to South China for the application of jungle patrol for drug plantation as well as watching smugglers , hi,___.
We are a little bit proud of this fact that our __toy___ radio is in use for commercial application in the rest of the world and in China. We have had hard time in not only resetting manufacturing tools once again for this production but also procuring discontinued semiconductor components. Now we would like to ship balance of 50 sets to US amateur customers who have been patiently waiting for a long time since spring time .
Due to the high cost of once discontinued parts and recent sudden currency exchange rate problem ( Jap Yen being appreciated over US Dollar by 10% ), we are sorry that we have to raise prices a little bit compared to the past quotation.)
For the antennas, we still have original 6m antenna ( HA-1LT rod plus 6m HA-06LB base coil ) , but for 40m and 15m. Replacement is a center loading, collapsible antenna with TNC plug ( not BNC ). For the purchase
of this center loading one, we offer you a free adapter, BNC-P/ TNC-J .
Regarding the external speaker mike and leather soft case, our stock is almost to run out with quantity of 8 pcs each.
