    Uniden 980 crystal swap for lowers

    Hey Harley 3315, if I remember correctly,the Uniden 980 can't be modified for Xtra Channels without extensive modifications to the radio itself, would almost be cheaper in the long run to pick up a used export Radio if that's what you want to do,jmo. Hope it helps............... Steve AE 575
