I am in the computer repair
business. So I know a little bit about taking care of clients with broken
Today I received back my two Beach Hunter ID's
from Whites in Oregon. I was absolutely shocked when I opened up the
First of all, a little history
on the 2 units I sent in.
1st unit was almost 9 years old. For those of you that know me, I have
used the heck out of this unit. The only service done to it in 9 years was

battery packs (loaded with fresh batteries) installed. Can you believe
that? Wow, what service. I am speechless.
