    Bet they want a big piece of change for that beauty.

    Found a video that shows the MARS mod done to it.
    Removal of R335 does it.

    I like those radios but I wish they put the screen buttons on the left side... it's like having a car with a steering wheel on the wrong side, but I kinda know why they did it like that.... slightly faster access from the knob....

    A cocktail stir? Why? Go big or go home.

    This one’s (Duga-3) is for lease.

    The original power supply melted, so bring that Home Depot Genset!
