    don't have any pics of mine, but im running the PCI chase set up.

    a little over priced but i needed it for the Mojave run my first year and they were the only people in the general area that had one in stock. I am definitely impressed with the antenna and magnet mount. Haven't had it move more than an inch yet. And the range is pretty good as well!

    I've never had a handheld. I've always had the V8000.

    I don't need it done right this moment, but like Johnnies, his radio was overheating and cutting off. I was wondering will HMO service this or do you have to buy a new radio?

    They will service radios at their shop..if you had a yaesu you can take it directly to them(yaesu) I think in tustin.

    Try running the radios at 50 watts instead of the Max untill you decide to send it in

    No. I thought it was at the time but then my dust light was also flickering. When I got home I discovered I had a loose connection on my fuse box causing all the electrical accessories to go off and on. Everything is fine now.
