As a Biblical Christian to whom that means everything
I cannot engage in anything that even sounds deceptive.

I need an official word from Yaesu if they will honor
the warranty based on the serial number on record as
covered -- or if their official policy is to duck their
obligation to support their gear on the thin excuse that
the owner has changed.

If Yaesu will not honor their warranty to that serial
numbered rig then I will make my buying decision based
on no warranty service available -- it harms the original
buyer by reducing the value of an otherwise nearly-new
used rig and may harm future Yaesu sales if other
manufacturers are more buyer-friendly.

And no, I don't know if this makes Yaesu any different
