I bought a new FT-90R mobile radio.By the time I got home it would not transmit on the 440 side,no power out-put.The 2 meter side worked ok.I took it back to where I bought it and they confirmed there wasn't any power.I got a new one and the same thing happened.Has Yaesu go some QC problems??.This is he first Yaesu I have ever bought,and bought it mainly for the small size to fit in my truck.Has anyone else had these type of problems??.I have been buying Icom radios and haven't ever had any problems.Thanks or any replies,especially problems with the Ft-90R.Thanks

I have a similar problem with mine.  It isn't anything wrong with the power output though.  Instead, when the radio is cold (<40 degrees F) the PLL becomes unstable up on 440 and it will not lock on frequency during transmission.  Sometimes it will lock and provide a stable 5 khz deviation and a clean signle.  Other times it just transmits a 20 Khz. hash.  One of these days I am ripping it out of the car and sending it back to Yaesu for warrenty service.
