Re: FT-840


There nice radio's ive got one, Do the Resistor mod though as the resistor is borderline in its wattage and gets very hot and can cause the voltage to rise making the radio do weird [sign in to see URL] done every 840 ive had... Never had a problem.. The resistor is R2213 its a 2 watt resistor, it gets very hot as its being overrun, I replaced mine with a Ceramic one rated for 5 watts, It still gets hot but well within limits... as it was it was cooking....
