Yeah saw the same one on ebay. Thats my backup plan. Was planning on testing the broken radio with the eeprom programmer tomorrow. New radio wont be here for a few days, so I'll get some practice in and like you said confidence. I'm pretty experienced with hardware integration and electrical engineering, but Ive never programmed a chip that was already in place. So this will be a cool new thing to learn. Thanks again for all the info!
