I have experienced trouble with the connector between the processor board
and the front panel board. If you look at the V2 mod documentation, your
will see the long row of pins which are behind the row of buttons starting
with "MENUS". I learned that if I apply pressure along the slopped area
between the buttons and the display, it seems to exercise the connector
enough to clear any oxidation. Give it a try and see if it helps. It is much
easier that removing the front panel and cleaning the row of pins and

It may not be the solution to your problem, but is an easy first step to
try. Have you also tried the VFOB LCK reset. It is like removing the
internal battery and forcing the rig to completely reload the microcode.
After you do it, be sure to power the rig off and on.

Has anyone experienced VOX problems - keys transmitter when turned on?
Switches from main to sub-receiver when turned on?  Very intermittant.  Only
fix is master reset.
