Update on my low audio problem with the FT-8000r. Round trip for factory
service - three weeks. Not bad when you add the cross country Mass. to
Calif. journey. Total cost $8.00 for my choice to use faster air
They replaced VHF main unit, improved circuit, complete test and
to factory specifications.
