I have always commented on how things have changed since I was a tech back 
in the 50s (Navy). In those days we trouble- shot and replaced at the 
component level.  Today it done mostly at the board or sub-assembly level..

So.. I laughed a little to myself when I received a copy of the Yaesu 
invoice from last week's adventure. That little 5V regulator.. (7805) cost 
a mighty $.69...

So.. I guess there are exceptions to the rule....   The lithium battery was 
the biggie.. $3.00 .. Ha!
Of course the labor was another matter..
