hi all,
the Yaesu FT-1000MP was famous for key clix. i had no idea until a friend called on the phone to inform me about the problem. i believe that there is a mod to correct this but i don't remember who came up with the mod. possibly someone on this forum can direct us to the writer.
the FT-1000MP is a great radio and still used by many. if you own one of these radios it may be prudent to check and see if you have a key click problem.
good luck,larry  n7dd

Think about this. If you conceal the rigs identity, how do readers know
which rigs to avoid. By concealing you are endorsing the faulty rigs.

I purposefully avoided naming the radios that I noticed had the clicks.  
I think people should discuss that off line.  I can only say I agree 
with your comments, Jim.  This problem was mentioned again by Rob 
Sherwood in a recent webinar, and it clearly needs attention by the 
manufacturers.  I also noticed extreme clicks years ago with early Flex 
models, but they quickly cleared that up.  Even setting the default to 
6ms or more by the manufacturers would be a big help, since it seems 
most people don't change that setting.   Hot switching with older amps 
with slow relays can be a major click problem, too.  Jim
