Congratulations on your first brand spanking new shinny radio. You will really enjoy the FTM-350. It is a great radio. I have mine and I would not trade it for another. Have fun!

BOO-HOO on the taxes. If I were to pay $660 for the radio I would also have to pay $99 in taxes. Yep, 15% on just about everything and if I order out of province but still within Canada the vendor is required to charge the tax anyway.

Pfffffffttttt........................gas prices and taxes. You guys have it made and don't even realize it.

Congrats on the new purchase BTW.

Gas here is $6.13 for an imperial gallon or about $5.13 for a US gallon. You still have it better.
