I have a Yaesu VX-1R that is out of whack.  The displayed frequency is out of tune from the actual ocilator frequency.  2M is about about -10Khz.  I.E. to access the local 147.225 repeater, the display has to read 147.215.  70cm is also out of sync.  I can't remember by how much, but it is quite a bit more than the 2M band.  - direction as well.  Here's the weird part, the ham bands seem to be the only ones affected.  All other bands are fine.  FM Broadcast, TV, etc.  I have tried a CPU reset.  That did not work.  If anyone has a fix for this I'd love to hear from you.

Check out The Unofficial VX-1R Modifications Page. Has a discussion of a problem with a loose diode that is caused by presure of the speaker. can be resoldered if you are brave!  Check it out   Good luck   73
