Hello

I cannot give up my first 2m mobil radio. (FT-2400) Just went through a mic overhaul to install the new caps to get it working. I would like to replace the extremely small incandescent bulbs with LEDs so I will not have to worry about display lighting again. Has anyone made this mod and can you give advice on how well it worked along with which color LEDs work best for the mod. Also mounting orientation of the LEDs.

Thanks for any HELP!

Have you done a search of the Forum pages?  Maybe someone has already done what you describe.  Might also look at a FT-2500 to see what it uses as the radios are basically the same.  Do a google search, you might be surprised at what comes up.

Thought I had done an extensive search Mike. Must not have. I will try again.

Thanks
