Over the past weeks I had KF5FBR’s Yaesu FT101E ad N5WSA’s Icom IC-718 on my bench for various services. The FT-101 needed a general health check and brand new capacitors. No output powers was the problem the IC-718. The latter was caused by burned out final transistors. While working on them, I shot some pictures that I would like to share here.
Let’s start with the Icom IC-718:
And now on to the Yaesu FT-101E:
