I don't understand why they just can't upgrade the capacitors for a more frequency stable radio. Another thing today I opened a brand new never installed DX99V2. Still in factory box with seals in tact I looked around inside the radio and was sorely disappointed with what I saw. Solder Flux all over the place. It was apparent that they tried to wash it off but failed miserably. Add a little moisture and a little time corrosion will kill it and knock it off frequency. I'm sending this one back to Galaxy. It uses the same main board that they use in the DX949, DX959, and the DX979. A few parts added in here and there for FM and other features. But it is the same board, same design with just a few parts here and there and the board change it's function considerably.
I think the v2 uses the same board as the 95t2, 94hp and 98vhp.
I like mine, just would rather side mic jack.
