I haven't yet done the IMD mod, but I plan to do so for a couple of reasons:
This is a mod Ten-Tec felt strongly enough about to send me the instructions
and parts to do the job.
This is a good radio and shoule reflect the latest and greatest Ten-Tec has
to make it a better, more state-of-the-art radio.
It's easy to do. I probably won't mess too much up getting the job done.
If it doesn't show any significant difference, I am not out anything but a
time and solder. If it does, so much the better.
Also, someone alluded to that fact that your radio may not need it where
it is presently located. However, should a move or sale take place which
puts in in a situation where the IMD mod is a player, then you are ahead of
the game by having done it before losing the parts/documentation.
Finally, you can use it as a selling point when you decide to part with the
"Oh yeah. This radio has the IMD mod installed. That'll be $!00 more, pleae."
