Hello, All,

My FT1000MP was DOA when I turned it on Saturday for the 10 GHz 
contest.  The controls and displays all seemed OK, but there was no 
received signal, and zero output on transmit on both the TRV and main 
outputs.  I was amazed at what I found when I opened it up.  Mice had 
gotten inside and chewed up several wires!

Fortunately, it was easy to fix ;)

If you live in an area where there are mice, you should protect your MP 
when its not in use by covering the rodent entry portals!
