Turns out that UPS had another delivery in my area so they bypassed USPS and came by the house while I was at work and the wife was out. Anyway, got in touch with my bud at UPS who made contact with the driver who met my wife with the radio. I'm now enjoying my new TS480. I wasn't mad or anything, just annoyed at having to wait until tomorrow to get on the air. My other radio is in the shop with Clif and I was going nuts without one so I ordered another and will now have a backup. All worked out.
HF withdrawl will do that to you sometimes! It is like a drug!
