FT-897: MARS mod?
- Well - if it can't, it would be the ONLY radio made in the last 17+
years that couldn't!
Yaesu has a LONG tradition of being easy - a switch behind the front
panel on the 757!
The first FT23R 2M handhelds were transmitting full coverage out of
the box until David Doon of the FCC walked into the Burlingame, CA.
HRO store and put the one I handed him on 162.40 and pressed the PTT
switch and it transmitted. That was the end to that - then it
became "remove a solder blob" modification.
