This sounds really bad to me. I would think that Yeasu wouldn't cut corners
here but will try to verify this
with the schematics. An old trick and quick fix which would not need any 100
ohm resistors would be
to put a second 1mF back to back with the first one and then solder a couple
of 1n4001diodes also back to back around the caps. Make sure the diodes
would conduct preventing the caps from seeing reverse voltage larger than .6
V (diode junction) while the diode conducts that cycle to the other cap.
You have then created a non-polarized large capacitor. Which won't blow up
or distort the audio.

These babies can handle lots of power.
But this technique is useful when you need like 100 MF....not only 1 Mf. At
1 mf there are lots of non-polar caps available.
This is analogous when I bought my first "Contest" rig an IC781 and only mike
I had to make a quick and
dirty boom mike was a cartridge I paid a buck for. So I used a $5000 rig
with a $1 mike for the first contest I used the rig on......go figure what a
ham will do, but its no excuse for Yeasu..HI.

Seems I once heard about some kind of latches between sections, which
could be operated from the ground with ropes, or something. Guaranteed,
I suppose, to get jammed in the worst possible configuration.

Naw, they'll just confiscate the coffee can after each contest ;-)

Duh, I have a new wire beam on 40 - something I should have thought of a long
time ago. This was fun!
I don't think the low bands played very well. There was much to do on the
high bands, and that's were the action was. Lotsa mult movin'.
