Along with the new units, we have also found a few units that are in like-new condition.  Most had the notorius face-latch problem.  Others have a few scrapes and scuffs from a previous install.  They are all guaranteed to be in perfect working condition.  Just to be sure we hooked them up and made sure everything was working.  The retail boxes are a little worn, but all the original accessories are there.  The owners manual and carrying case for the face may be missing.  We are selling these radios with a 30 DOA guarantee

I haven't hooked it up yet, but I did receive it in very good condition. I have the same model radio in my daily driver and I like it so much I wanted the same in my motorhome, which is where this new one will go. If I have problems with it onece I get it hooked up, I'll let you know.
I have one of these and midland 79-290 cb radio, is the best I've had, the Local function is what I like, with this function you do not mind the noise and distant stations.Luis R
