My problem was a memory issue. It would forget which language it was supposed to talk in and erase all my stored memories. No problem getting them replaced.

I'm having memory issues with my Kenwoods. I can't remember what all the buttons do.

We got buttons inside of buttons. I have to keep the manual near my TS480HX so I can figure out how to work it. I generally run it with HRD.

Which is why I still run my old Icom 736's. Simple, solid, and trouble free. My mobile 2m/440 units require re-reading the book if I want to change anything on them. My advanced CRS is forcing me to look for simpler rigs.

I called Richard at MTC earlier in the week and told him about my internal speaker issue. He never hesitated, he said, "Mail it to me." I know the warranty is expired. He should have received it yesterday. We will see what happens. I hope he has quick turn around, I already miss it.

I see now they have a 2 meter/6 meter band handheld on the market. Not a lot of 6 meter activity here but interesting.

Y'll quit complaining about buttons inside of buttons !
get your hand's on a Kenwood TH-77A , then tell me about programing , then don't touch it for 6 months and go back and add a repeater.
NO software or Cable for that thing,,,but if you get it right , it works good .

Richard at Main Trading Company replaced my handheld with a brand new one. No charges or fees. I had the one that went bad for over 18 months and he knew it. I'll be doing more business with MTC. That's going beyond the call.
