Japanese amateur gear prices - down please!

Sorry to labour this point, but in the last few months the Yen has lost over 25% of its value against the UK pound. Why are we NOT seeing prices of Icom, Kenwood and Yaesu gear falling significantly? By now the FT817ND should be retailing for less than £500. I know there are other factors, but it would be nice if our dealers passed on SOME of the exchange rate improvements.

Guess they buy stock six months in advance, so it will take 6 months or so to start filtering through. It could be time if you are after that big rig this Xmas.

The last run on the Yen seen the FT-817 dropping to £349.00 keep hoping?
