#&?!%* Topcon GR-3s
June 2011 – units crapped out 300 miles away. Replaced antenna connections. $1100
Nov 2011 – replaced UHF transmitter, satellite receiver AND antenna connection. $4000
March 2012 – replaced bluetooth card AND UHF transmitter. – $3500
Three weeks later…it’s doing the same thing. Called the shop and we fugged with it enough to know it’s the satellite receiver. “Send ’em back…we’re sorry…”
(I’m not really blamin’ the repairman…yet)
Man, It’s hard enough to make any money in this business nowadays without dumping handfuls of cash down the drain….
Gimme a frikken break.
OK…rant off…BP is leveling out at 180 over 100…
