I almost bought a new one of these radios, but luckily I discovered the local Harris vendor is a complete scumbag, and that these radios are not really field repairable, and take on the order of 8 hours to align.
So I got a 7K.
Anything from that seller is 100% legitimate surplus, obtained from Phoenix city and state of Arizona auctions. That being said...

There was a long-running thread about him on the old Hamsexy forum. I bought a stack of what was supposed to be UHF Astro Spectras from him, but got analog Spectras instead, and when I called him out on it he went back and took down the pictures showing Astro control heads. F that guy, he's a sh!thead. He's also misrepresented himself as a retired LEO to others.
