Hello
I could use some help with this 901dm.
the digital display is not displaying the correct freq.
it started out by scanning not changing freq. but display was jumping all over. I have found that when tuned in to say 7.226.0 the display shows 0.645.9.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Don. Despite the fact that I do have a complete 901 DM station, it's packed away in my shop right now.
These are EXCELLENT old radios, so don't give up! I would go to eHam's "reviews' section and look at the 'Amateur Radio Repair Services'. I'm sure you will find someone who is an "expert" on Yaesus.

Just look for a high % of positive feedback and send an email.

I know that it's tough sending 'your baby' away, but trust me, there are some excellent, honest guys out there. Since I have one of every brand, I have only had to use Cliff at AVVid and MTS (Scott) at Malcolm Technical Services.

Although these are Icom guys, I actually trust them MORE than the Icom service centers, (been there, done that, got the nfg t-shirt!!!)

Contact Brian Campbell WA4GEG.

He restored my Yaesu 301SD when no one else would touch it. Highly reccomended!

Could possibly be an HR contact on the local board.

Unpluging the board and apply a bit of switch cleaner to the edge connector may solve the problem.

If it does you have an easy fix. if not...nothing ventured..
