Funny, I thought it'd be nice if Yaesu spent ANY time or effort on their
web pages. They are pretty stale. Products are in the stores which the
pages don't list as being able to get brochures for. There's no
significant additional data there, about products... just the marketing
hype. Data sheets/spec sheets would be nice.

Lists of mods and such would be helpful. Email contact to tech support
would be helpful, etc.

Your idea for service status inquiries is also a good one. These things
would all enhance their business, and in the case of the repair database
it'd save them from answering the phone as much, resulting in cost
