Bill, I know you feel that the W8JI mod does a better job than the Int'l
Radio version. With all the recent discussion about key clicks from the
FT-1000 series, and having myself received one or two reports of clicks
from my FT-1000MP over the years, I did some reading up on both of the
mods. My choice was the Int'l Radio mod, partially due to its relative
ease in installation, and partially from the specs I was reading about
both mods. I completed the mod just yesterday and haven't made any
comparisons other than to listen to my transmitter on a separate
receiver before and after the mod (no scope readily available).
Anyhow, I feel I should have made at least some improvement to mine and
will not panic the next time I receive a report of clicks, rather I will
more likely attribute it to receiver setup or overload at the remote
end. I DO want to put out a clean signal.
