Good Morning to all. Worked on this radio last night
and thought I would pass along what I found:
Replaced this diode with a standard 1N4007 power supply
diode. Seems to work just fine. I did this after using
the NTE cross reference and noting this is just about what
it crossed to. I would have suspected this to have been
a spot for a hefty PIN diode, but maybe not.
My next project is to check the muting relay inside the
second receiver bandpass filter network. I suspect
it's not working. I'm also building up my arm muscles
just lifting this radio <grin>.
Thanks for the help.

Had a similar problem with spurs every 15KHZ (Approx).
These were very strong at 150 -300Khz.
I changed the GM-3B diode and this made no difference.
The 15 Khz oscillation was coming from the transistors and
around the diode. In the end I sent it to YAESU SERVICE in
They had to replace the LPF board to fix this problem.
Hope this has been of some help
