Default Say what- IC-7200 back in production

Just saw a couple posts that the radio is in production.

Checked Ham Radio Outlet, it was listed as available to purchase.

OK, I'm biased, I have a 7200. It just seems to offer a lot of great features and performance at a very reasonable price.

So, I thought it was interesting it was discontinued then brought back.

I think there is a story behind this, but haven't seen any discussion about what it is.

They were a very popular radio and for good reason, simple controls (short learning curve), rugged, great filtering and DSP. I have been tempted with the 7300 and own a 7000 but the 7200 is my every day radio they still fetch same $ you could by one new for. Only draw back and not a big one no 6 meter FM.
