[Yaesu] My FT-990 Repair (Wrapup)
Mon, 24 Jul 2000 19:31:31 -0700
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..
