Had a friend that sent a Yaesu FT917 (?) into Yaesu repair because someone plugged a morse key into the power accessory jack on the back and blew the unit.
Long story short--Yaesu claimed the rig was totally unrepairable and sent it back. I opened the unit, replaced a blown trace on the circuit board, and the unit was back in service--and working OK.
Kinda strange that Yeasu missed something that obvious.
Just to let you know, unless you have a radio repair licence, this is illegal. If you do indeed have this licence, ignore this post.
Brandon, I think you had better reread the amateur regulations. We're permitted to build
our equipment, never mind simply repairing it--as long as we check it and make sure it works according to spec. or FCC regs. Our equipment isn't meant to be used in the public service bands--but from what I've seen, there are hams repairing equipment that put some of those commercial repair techs to shame!
You haven't been a ham long, have you? Perhaps you ought to learn a little more before offering such an erroneous reply again. Remember that a amateur license is a license to learn--not a blanket certificate that says you know all there is to know about radios. 73!
