Great radio!...I have used one of these before. I sure wish I had one that had the 2meter and the 440 boards in them. I miss that radio!...Mark KD4QHG
Have one with the three modules for 2m / 6m & 70cm I believe was Yaesu's flagship in the late 80s still a sturdy & friendly operating radio.
Said pushes 100w on all HF but true figures are between 109w - 111w.On the modules showing 11watts on all three.
Only downfall is the memory battery's awkward to replace ideal is to add 2x 2032 battery holders at a easy access place to replace them with just four soldering points not rocket science, but will save a lot of time messing around in the future. If your not up to doing the job get someone who is.
So called DC/DC convertor is a small circuit roomed on the dial board.
This circuit makes negative voltages required for VFD display tube and OP AMPs of the tuner.
The circuit represents a small blocking generator. Poorly designed unit in a very tight place what follows to overheat of a small transistor and failure of the whole transceiver.
Repair is possible, but damn troublesome:
One shall remove the board, remove VFD display and then replace bad transistor.
Three years later the situation repeats.
