OK, now I am confused, perhaps because Yaesu has not clarified
this in any public forum (esp. not on their Web page).

Does anyone know of a clear statement from Yaesu as to their
policy re. rigs re-sold during a valid warranty period?

Sure would be valuable to many to know.  Is this one of
those unfortunate "secret warranty" things common across
multiple industries that saves companies money on unmet
warranty obligations yet allows special treatment for the
most noisy and/or favored customers?


Thanks! & 73, doc kd4e
