I would take it back to the Retailer you bought it off, to keep the warranty If I were you. :ugeek:
I'm not ,and I did my own, but sorry I'm not saying how it's done.
I don't think President Electronics will let the general public know for the above reason.

here is what u need to look for... the radio needs a resistor added which would be located where the white export wire was on the previous versions.

If they cannot/won't do the mod send it back.

Then buy another that has already been opened up, or get a different radio which doesn't require the same amount of messing about.
