I know they had problems but I dont know if they fixed it for sure. I did hear that the newer year model 980ssb radio is OK !!
To tell if you have the new or old model look on the back of the radio and look for a screw next to or close to the coax connector. The newer model radio DOES NOT have a screw there and the older models do.
Because of this problem the cost of bad, no good or used 980ssb radios are high because of the parts.
If possible take the radio inside at night and dont let it freeze.
