The YAESU FT-225RD and repair                         Back to main PROJECTS page

TOP

           

Got myself a YAESU FT-225RD from eBay in perfect condition except for the MODE switch but a replacement is on the way. The case hasn’t one scratch or bump ..... incredible for a machine of this age (1986).

Of course I had to check the inside

for marks, but it looks like this one

has never been opened !

Lucky me ;-)


The only problem is the ModeSwitch

it doen’t work very reliable,

so I’m checink if it can be cleaned with

special cleaning-fluid or that it must be

replaced ..........................................

Spare part taken apart,

just to check if cleaning-fluid would work .......



it probably will !

YES .......... it worked, used my Dremel to open the back of the switch and cleaned it with the ‘KONTAKT spray’.









Results are OK, everything works fine again
