No.  They won't even sell you equipment as it's unfair competition to 
authorized dealers.  Their whole purpose is PR, advertising and technical 
questions.  Just send it back to their factory repair center in Cupertino, 
CA.  They probably don't even go "home" after every hamfest so it would delay 
your repair if they did take busted radios!  Anyway, no one likes to go home 
from a hamfest with more stuff than they took ;-)
