Anyone experience the radio lockup described on eHam? Required a hard reset.
I have not experienced this. There are a lot of reasons why a radio could lock up, like RFI in the shack. But, maybe that guy got a bad one...who knows?
Also, how about an update on the suction cup mount. Is it viable or problematic?
It's definately viable, but it could be better. It doesn't have that much adjustable range; you basically can only swivel it left and right and rotate it very slightly counterwise and clockwise. You can't adjust it so the face tilts up and down, at all. So, it will work great for fairly level surfaces, but not if you're trying to level out the face on a very slanted dash. A Lido mount is probably a lot more viable solution.
