ft840 owners may like this resistor mod

Post by andrew013 » 18 Aug 2014, 20:48

my trusty ft840 of 20 yrs just went and died on sat found out that resistor 2213 burns out and can kill the radio in many ways , mine had no display rx or tx but a quick look and seeing burnt /scorched circut board and the fact that the resisitor was dead i found this mod which should be done regardless (it has fixed mine good as new i got the resistor in the mod and cost £3.80 you can get cheaper alloy ones 2 for £1.88 etc )
