The problem of the availability of parts has been discussed in relation 
with the FT-1000, probably because this issue has been invoked by Yaesu 
in order to explain why this model has been discontinued.

In my opinion, there are probably no less such custom made parts in most 
other transceivers on the past and current market. Therefore the problem 
is probably exactly the same for exactly the same reasons.
