lafd55,The only way you will know what Uniden will charge you is to call them. Also when the work is done Uniden gives you a 90 day warranty on the work. It the work they do fails during that 90 days they will fix it for FREE. If you want to job done right I would let Uniden fix it and do not trust anyone else.If you do let someone work on the radio other than Uniden. This will void your warranty if you have one on the unit that needs to be repaired. I have had a lot of Uniden items repaired and I am very happy with the repaired items when they came back to me.
