Default How can I check if a radio is crippled?

I bought a sportster replay today to act as a backup to my current sportster. Well, The real story is that I thought that my radio was dying because of some intermittent dropouts and the recent afternoon update that erased my presets. Well I couldn't' just put away this new radio without checking it out.
The first thing I noticed is that the channel lineup on the back of the box is pretty old, it had Air America and PRI. The thing that really suprised me is that it said "Howard Stern coming January 2006" on the inside channel lineup.

Does this mean the radio is old stock? Perhaps the FM transmitter is good? That's been the real concern for me because I frequently walk around my office with a FM radio picking up my sportsters signal.

They wouldn't' have opened all teh boxes and jimmied with them, right?
