Yes there is, and no you don't want to do that.
The new version of the Manipulator, due out soon, will have a feature to dump the Radio ROM to disk. However: overwriting a radio ROM with someone else's data is dangerous, and Manipulator will not offer that option.
The reason is that Radio's are likely to contain what is called 'Calibration Data'. These are tuning values specific to your transceiver module. Using someone else's values could and probably would degrade performance of your phone, possibly to the point of making it not work at all.
Now when we figure out which parts of the ROM are code, and which parts are data which is supposed to stay in the phone, that's another story.
