i was in contact with this guy (by phone), seems legit, but as I said, my family bought me a new one for birthday, and my wife wanted the warranty! 2 yrs full replacement for about $100 bucks at RS. he told me it had the extreme upgrade installed also, but i'm not sure he understood what I was asking! so if you live in the area you could put your hands on it.
My radios are, Realistic PRO-34, SC230, BCT-8, BCD396XT!
