I'm sorry you have been having so much trouble getting TenTec to
fix that piece of junk they call a Paragon. No one should have to
jump through all the hoops that you have had to go through. Can't
even fix a simple subassemmbly without the rest of the radio - who
ever heard of such a thing. From all your complaints you've aired,
I think you deserve some relief (the reflector could use some,
too). You need a break and I feel generous enough to assist you.
I'll give you $100US for that broken down, unrepairable mess that
TenTec dares to call a decent radio. You can ship the whole basket
of parts loose in a box, it doesn't matter to me. 

With the generous offer I'm making you, you'll be ready to get a
real radio from Kenwood or Yaesu or even Icom, and be sitting back
working DX once again. Let your woes be mine and have some extra
christmas money. I'll sweat it out with the boys in TN. Hell, I'll
even throw in some greenstamps for shipping, ho ho ho.... But,
hurry up, the kids are tugging at my wallet, too.
