Hi, All

Just bought a new Mark V from a large dealer in the upper midwest.  I 
wanted to be sure that the one I got had the key clicks problem fixed 
during production, so when I un-boxed the unit, one of the first things I 
did was check the serial number.  Mine begins 4K, which indicates a 
manufacture date of September, 2004.

Is this kind of lag time typical?

When I ordered the radio, it was not in stock. I had to wait three weeks 
for the dealer to get the next shipment from Yaesu.  However, ten months 
seems a long time between production and sale of a "new" radio.  Anyway, 
according to past posts to this list mine should be past the "fix date" for 
the key click issue.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?
