    You'll like it.

    I see he charges $300 for the 2950DX.
    Does he align the radio or give a break on shipping?

    His website isn't optimized for mobile so I didn't explore his site much.

    well I guess if you buy a radio from him new he takes care of his customers but with warranty repairs for radios not purchased there don't be in a hurry, he had my Magnum S9 for 5 weeks never even looked at it, Sam Lewis had him send it to another Factory shop, they did the repair in 2 days

    Well if he's that busy then quit talking on the CB while at work. I took a trip to the mid west in October both times I past his exit off of Interstate 80 they were on the radio drumming up business, and that was about a month after my radio got out of there unfixed, does that make any sense?

    Splash why would you wait that long for any repair, there are a lot of other good shops that work faster than that, try DTB Radio in Carlisle PA, Dave is great and I get usually a week or so turn around time, heck evern Chris Holland in Ontairo California is 3 to 4 weeks at the most. If more people quit going to Bob's maybe he might get the hint that and he can have all those truckers off of route 80 and the truck stop guys and not us hobby radio operators. I've also had great repair from Mountain View Electronics in Tennessee. With the flat rate USPS boxes these days a good radio shop is only 14 dollars away

    If you bought a radio from Sparky there is no need to send it off to a "service center". If you have a problem you call them and send it back. DTB, Bobs, Sparky's, and Custom CB are great places to deal with.

    I bought a little new Galaxy mobile off of Sparky. He or one of his elfs cut the trace on my limiter. I called him and he DENIED it. Well, the conversation went south from there.

    Excuse me, but Sparky ain't gonna see no more of my money.
