Wow, what a fantastic service - I don't know how you do it, but well done! Regards, Jeremy. . Jeremy Fisher


hi just quick thank you note,the code you supplied worked perfectly.the radio was sold as having a code,but was given as 1707 as you know codes only contain numbers 1-6 so there is no way of inputting a 0 or 7. also the radio was on an error 6 message,so I only had one entry attempt available. if I got it wrong the unit would lock up.best regards. John Mckean
