Hello everyone, I have recently been in a search of an FTS-7a tone board for a 290rII that was given to me recently and came across a site called piexx.com. Its a company in NH that manufactures aftermarket direct replacement tone boards. Even though it does not list the 7a, I decided to give them a call and see if they have any. I spoke to Chris and he told me while they do not, he was considering making some at one point but never did. I explained to him that I know several of 90RII series owners who would purchase a direct replacement board for those rigs if one were available. He informed me that he does have the capacity to manufacture these boards and has a production run coming up in the next 2 months and to drop him an email to recap our conversation. As we all know, it wouldnt be profitable for him to make one or even 6 of these things but if the demand is there for a decent amount, he will almost certainly manufacture these boards. Please drop him an email via his site www.piexx.com
if you are interested in purchasing a drop in replacement for the fts-7a.
Please note: I am in no way affiliated with this company or any employee of piexx. THIS IS NOT AN ADVERTISEMENT AND SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED SUCH. I posted this as I have heard quite a few people with these radios without tone boards inquire as to where to find them and would just like to help us get them.
