Hi Everyone,
My FT-1000D has recently developed a problem with the received audio.  
Sometimes the audio coming from the external speaker gets distorted, especially 
with strong signals.  This distortion comes and goes, but seems to be getting 
more consistent.

It sounds like RF on transmitted audio, but it is on the received audio.  The 
audio from the speaker is garbled, distorted and very "rough around the edges". 
 Has anyone heard of this problem or have any ideas?  I thought it might be a 
NB problem or a problem in the audio driver stage.  Will the NB mod cure this 
problem?  It has never done this since I bought it new so I am not sure if the 
mod will help or not.

Thanks in advance.
