  1. If you do mods on any other radios, I certainly would be very interested. This kind of service is very hard to find and very appreciated when you can find it.

  2. Jesse,

    I have a Radio Shack DX-402 and a DX-399 that are in need of service. I need to replace speakers on both radios. I would like to try doing this myself but I don't know where to purchase the speakers. Would you be so kind to direct me where I could buy these replacement speakers? If not, how much do you charge for replacing these speakers?
