Are the finals affordable to replace or am I better off getting a new 2meter
With so many good and inexpensive 2m mobile
rigs out there, I'd just get a brand new one.
Sure, you might
be able to fix the HTX-242.
But it will most probably involve much more
than just dropping in new finals. There will be
bias and other adjustments......and I'm not even sure
you can get a Service Manual for this rig.Just bite the bullet and get a nice new rig.
They are ALL pretty good, the difference being
mostly in the features and receiver coverage.
Figure out your budget, and what features you
want or need.
Then maybe learn to work on the broken one
in your spare time. IF
you can fix it, then, well
you've got yourself a backup rig.
Even if you can't fix it, you're bound to learn
a lot in the process.
