Looks like the venerable FT-7800R is discontinued and there's a new sheriff in town. Seems very similar spec (same RX range, same TX range, 1000 memories, etc.) with the exception of doing 45W on 70cm (5W bump I think over the 7800). Nice looking radio, same basic layout and dimension as the 7800, a little softer edges maybe. Looks like the street prices are about $265. Keep your eyes out for FT-7800 on the cheap if there is any old stock being cleared out.

Doesn't look much different, does it?

Other than the 5W 70cm bump and very slight cosmetic changes, it's the same radio.
