[Yaesu] FT1000MP power pot
Sun, 5 Nov 2000 20:52:10 +0100
This will not work.
1. You can´t use the 10 or 50 watt pot, they only work from abt 0-15w resp. 20-70w. Look in the schematic diagram.
2. The "Max power" pot only give 105 watts in the maximum position. ( on my FT1000MP )
That,s to bad, I also need 120-130 watts for my two 3-500ZG.
