Getting back on track instead of having meaningless arguements about weather the radio is legal or not in the US.. do keep in mind not everyone is located in the USA and as mentioned before this model radio is very legal in other places around the world.
I myself have one i use for 10m monitoring while using the FT950 to do the real work but have made a few contacts with it.
the poor guy just asked for some help not to be hassled.
I have found this site to be handy for problems with the 2950, i hope it helps. http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/rci/rci_2950/index.htm
