    Looking good! Thanks for fixing it up for me. Can't wait to get it back on the air. Funny that there are about ten different members named Chris here, so even though you said my name I was still anonymous. Haha, too funny!

    Hey OT,
    I put it in the shack to check it out and it is working great! I talked to someone in NJ on 38lsb and got great reports. Thanks OT for fixing it up and thanks for fixing the top cover. The guy I got it from had glued the radio into his console with RTV silicone. I guess he just gooped it on and slapped it in there. Now the radio looks good enough to keep in the shack. Haha. The price to repair is extremely reasonable and you could probably charge more. I have another radio that I will be sending you soon.
    Thanks again!
    Chris

    Just a little bump, I always enjoy talking on this radio. I have the power knob turned down and run it with a KL203 kicker. Always get good reports.
