The Asurion protection plan works the same as any other similar plan. I’ve only had a few cases where I have used the coverage and Asurion is generally easy to deal with.
The one thing that annoys me with Asurion protection plans offered here and through other large online sellers is that Asurion always cheats you out of a few days coverage.
First of all, while the plan says “3 Year” is really isn’t three years because it doesn’t start until the manufacturer’s warranty runs out. So if you have a product from a company that has a one year warranty, your “3 Year” Asurion plan only gives you two years of coverage to start with (in their favor, sometimes Asurion might cover something that the manufacturer’s warranty doesn’t, but in any case while the product is under the manufacturer’s warranty you have to deal with the manufacturer first).
That part of the deal is right there in black and white (although most people don’t notice it) so I don’t consider that “cheating” but I do feel that Asurion cheats customers out of a few days coverage on every plan because the time on your Asurion plan starts running the instant you click to buy the plan along with your item. Which means that the time on your “3 Year” protection plan is running while you haven’t even received the item yet. For most items on Amazon you are only losing two or three days off your protection plan, but for items shipped from the manufacturer or from a seller other than Amazon, you will typically lose a week or so. Don’t even think about what you lose waiting for the arrival of an item shipped from outside the US.

Very disappointed with this plan. Although they did replace our original purchase less the cost of taxes & shipping, the representative neglected tell us that since we used the plan it was no longer any good!
This was purchased to go with a gift that was given and it was presumed to be a 3 year plan nor a 3 years or 1 use plan!
The topper was that when the representative talked to our recipient she neglected to tell him that he would need to repurchase a plan when he ordered his replacement product if he wanted to have one!
So disappointing. I expect a higher level of customer service from Amazon & it??s associates.

It depends on your antenna, elevation, and output power.

Can I use a firestik antenna with this radio
The Firestik is designed for the CB frequencys around 27 Mhz. the Btech operates at around 144Mhz or 440 Mhz. T Antennas are normally “tuned” to the operating Frequency of the radio. The Firestik would likely be way out of tune for the radio and probably ruin the radio . You need the correct antenna. The Btech is desig??
