having solved A25,E5,F6,G8,H49,J789,
I am stuck for the moment. I have to interrupt for the moment and will continue later.

Took me while to find your F6 and G8 solutions, Christoph, but then I saw it. Hereafter, I disproved one alternative of C1. Then, a lot of head chain work.

After solving F6.

Easy to work out hi/lo in col 4. Testing low sets D4=4,D5=2, making 2 in every col, but eliminates 2 for row F.

Then, if F34=87, F1=1, D4=1, which conflicts with the 7 in F4.
