Hi all
I know this is not the usual FT100 discussion place - I have forgotten
the exact newsgroup for that ! 
But does anyone know if the FT100 is prone to burning out P.A. stages on
50Mhz ?? I am told by a few "locals" that it is a common problem
.....Yaesu UK say "they have never been informed of any such problems "

Mine "blew" with some smoke - after a short transmission into a
reasonable SWR (less than 2.5:1) with 100w of FM - now there's no RF on
HF or 50Mhz but otherwise ok.

Any comments !??
