I went and passed the General test, came back home, and the receiver was dead. Nothing on AM or SSB. FM still works, so I guess I have a really expensive dual band rig now.
...it worked pretty nice while it still worked, though.
The only problem my ft-100 ever had was the display, soldered the damn thing in and it works like a charm and Ive had it in the car for about 8 years now.
My 1000 MP MKV has never given me one bit of trouble, or Syd's Yaesu mobile. When I had an FT-817, it worked good, sold it to a friend and he blew out the finals in it.. LOL. Have the FT-450 now too, nice radio, with firmware updates! (use it on 6 alot).
