LOL yea, sounds like a sucker sales gimmick for e-bay chumps. I would buy a radio tuned by DTB or Doug at Custom CB long before I would buy from e-bay like that.

nothing but snake oil. just a over tuned radio.
not worth the money. its just a swing mod.
and charge you 3 times what the radio is worth.

Overpriced is an understatement. That must be the price they charge the US government.

Like others I get bored and surf e bay and just kept seeing these radios and thought maybe I'm missing something. I wouldn't buy one I had a refurb 949 and never again. I put more into that radio than what I bought it for.

You off all people don't need a radio called flamethrower........you already have pretty nasty burns from the boiling antifreeze incident. Sorry...I just had to say that.

I figure the Flamethrower" is probably one step removed from a full blown Radiohactive radio.
