I guess it is important to keep in mind that the only value our radio
toys have is the enjoyment of using them so better to use them up than
let them sit.  So no big deal once you get your fair value of use from
them if they cannot be repaired.

That said, seems one thing going for TenTec traditionally was their
service.  If loyal user is willing to pay to have them determine if a
rig is repairable and, if so, at what cost; then so long as they are
making money it would seem bad business to turn everyone out in
the cold.  I assume it is not a viable business practice or they really
do not want to support the ham gear anymore beyond whatever they now
produce and given what they produce and that does not seem a viable
business model either at this point.
