Is Unlocking Legal?

OP, your radio is awesome! The modification is a fairly straight forward one, which does void your warranty unless you have a MARS cert. I've done three so far, all went well. I had no problem transferring from a sd card after mod. Do back-up if you have lots of mem and custom settings.. The mod did open the VHF side too. It is not illegal to mod a radio or this specific radio. It is illegal to use in certain "modded" circumstances. I am one of many who believe it is a duty and privilege to have a expanded transmitter. Used appropriately, it can and will save lives.

This is info only, I am aware of the rules and laws, so no need to admonish.
