Wanted to report what appears to be a potential construction fault for 
the benefit of anyone that may have experienced problems with poor 
receive sensitivity and low output power on a Yaesu FT-2400 mobile 2 m 

I experienced both of these problems simultaneously but the problem 
seemed to come and go from time to time and it may have been related to 
outside temperature.  On inspecting the radio I was able to determine 
that the solder joint between the SO-239 and PC board had failed and 
caused the problem.  Oddly, in my radio, there was no bridging wire 
between the SO-239 and PC board, only a solder joint which spanned a 1/16 
inch gap which strikes me as a potential weak point if common to all 

Hope this helps someone that may have experienced a similar problem.
