It's really not as easy as getting a serial dump or even a sample
image. The process of reverse-engineering these radios is
time-consuming and very tedious, even when you have the radio on hand.
I've done a couple of models remotely, asking someone to send me dump
after dump in an attempt to do it without having to actually hold the
radio myself. Even as skilled as I have become at making
(relatively) quick work of doing these, it takes so much _more_ time
that way that I've committed to not doing it remotely anymore. Other
developers may feel differently, but the time cost is far (far) more
than the monetary cost to ship the radio back and forth between the
owner and the developer once.
