An old friend.
A few months ago, I posted about how I had gotten a new butt set, and how I was figuring it out. Unfortunately, since then, I have found that while the Harris TS 44 Deluxe has a lot of nifty features, it is also way too fragile to be useful as a piece of field equipment. Within a short span of time, it started getting very twitchy. The real breaking point came when the speakerphone broke. I spend way too much time on hold in my job to have a butt set without a working speakerphone. Happily, my original TS22ALO was returned from the shop all fixed.
Furthermore, my T-Berd battery has decided to throw in the towel, which means I'll have to send that in to get replaced soon too.
