Crazy 220 Radio  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought this ADI 220 mobile rig three years ago and it worked fine as a used radio but developed a problem about a year ago. The display began to get "scrambled" where I could no longer read the frequency and other information. I also noticed that the rig felt very warm to the touch on the entire chassis while in the receive mode. I did some research and learned that this scrambled display issue is a long time standing issue. I am at the point to sell the rig on eBAY "For Parts" and "As Is". I love the 220 mhz band, a buddy and I keep in touch daily on simplex and I'd hate to get rid of this 30 watt radio. Anyone have a solution knowing about this radio? I also learned that this display issue is happening in the AR-147 2-meter radios as well.....FYI. 
Product is not in production.
