<< My FT101E is transmitting in one frequency and receiving in another, about
 0.1 Khz of difference. Not much but enough to bother me! 
 Any tips to fix this problem?

There isa pot labeled "zero" on the regulator board in the rear center of the
radio, accesible from under the top cover. Simply use a freq counter to
measure the VFO output freq at the ext. vfo jack, and dial up a given freq in
receive mode. Then ket the mike with the power set low (as to avoid the RF
falsing the counter), set the "zero" pot to get the same freq reading on tx as
you had on Rx. THis is a common problem as this pot is extremely touchy and
changes value slightly with age. 

Keep that classic humming !
