    Don't think I'd rightly care for that mod.

    So what we have learned here is this: if you want to pay someone to wreck your perfectly good radio... Send it off for a SWP2 hack job or buy a hammer and do it yourself ;)

    Radioactive used to be a good shop. Back when the 158edx first came out they set one up for me and boy was that radio LOUD but besides being loud it was clean even on a spectrum analyzer. Now....They are just looking to make a buck, I had a friend buy a 2995dx from them..while it works great and so forth...the finals went south..instead of sending it back I just replaced em and rebiased them and all was good...the mod they charge all this money for now is a variable resistor and diode lol....they used to do good work and get it right..now I wouldn't buy a radio from them.

    It's not so much that their ill informed, his customers are fascinated with lights and noise... Like shaking keys at a baby.

    RR charges $80+ to superwackpack a radio plus the cost of the radio. Why waste $80 when you can get a few lap dances for that.
