Heath is most certainly not DEAD!  They are just no longer making electronic 
kits.  However, a little while back there was an announcement that they might 
be returning to the kit business.  However, there was no mention of again 
making kits for the amateur radio market.

yeees, that true in a way. but  how you cope with something like the fact that 
Heath is DEAD?Who  is the beneficiary of the intellectual knowledge of a 
defunct company? Usually, a company is required by law to provide service and 
spares for its products for a certain length of time, after having sold 
the product. if it falls, i don't see a reason why the last resource remaining 
to keep the product alive shouldn't pass in the public domain. It seems to me 
that it should be part of the company's responsibility- well, it probably 
doesn't exactly fit to Heath, since at the time electronic copies weren't 
available- but but selling a TS-140 manual for 40$ IS forcing many of us 
to resort to illegal copies!
