Someone did post that they were emailing Ian and asked all on the list to indicate their interest so he could let Ian know how many meters he might sell if he did a special run...that is exactly what you are seeing now. I lost count at 20 people interested in buying one. We all understand that Ian would have some minimum number of meters he could sell before it would be in his financial interest to make a batch.
Can we assume it is O.K. to post this to the list...a tally of how many people actually are ready to buy a meter so Ian can be informed and, hopefully, convinced?

I don’t think it is very useful to post to the list about your wish to buy a discontinued meter at this moment. Ian Parker wrote me some time ago: "I'm afraid we decided to wrap up our lightmeter sales as there simply wasn't the sales volume to make it a viable business. And unfortunately we have no remaining inventory either.”
I bought one in the first week it was available and another one a year later. There was quiet some discussion on this list about the meters and many people bought one as did several of my workshop participants. there was even a little sales peak when Chris bought one and wrote about it. Apperently this all did not raise sales above low volume and I think, to be realistic, a group buy of say another twenty or so won’t change that. So I fear it will not happen...
I suggest we take this discussion off list. If someone wants to contact Ian and a group buy, if possible, will happen, it’s off course ok to post it here…
