Default Where to buy a 2180 with TFS

I'd like to purchase a TK-2180 with the tactical feature set, but there aren't any dealers anywhere nearby that I can find. I know that Kenwood's website says that they prohibit selling online, so how would I go about trying to buy one? And about how much would one run with the TFS included?

Thanks for the help.

Check eBay and see if the seller can enable the TFS if it isn't included already.

This feature set must be installed by Kenwood and is only good on radio with a serial number of
805xxxxx or greater.

As for a dealer, go to kenwoodusa.com and click on dealers/service and do searce for your area.

The site is saying the nearest dealer is 137 miles away! That's gotta be wrong...

call kenwood and ask for updated information. Some times they have dealers and have not posted into the system.

Try Vincentcom in california.
They'll help you out and are great to deal with. Even for a one radio purchase for a ham.
