If you do this I will buy one.

What would be my cost to be able to program the radio myself later when the
repeaters change?  I assume a cable and software.

On a completely different subject ...  How does one borrow your demo radio
setup for the Hamwan?  I am looking at it for both the repeater and packet
station on County Center and the RACES radio room at the new Hillsborough
County EOC.

On a third completely different subject ...  Are you or someone else in
your FSGP organization interested in marketing at the Tampa Bay Hamfest?  I
can give you a booth, a standard 10 ft x 10 ft with two 8 ft tables.  Also
I have time available in my forum schedule so if you want to do one that
can be done.  Let me know what you are thinking.
