understand the later models had it installed by the factory.

         I believe it was in the summer of 2003, but it could have 
been 2004.  Since Yaesu never admitted there was a "key click 
problem" in all the years of FT-1000/MP/Mk V manufacturing, I doubt 
they would admit guilt and publicize when the Mark V mod was made.

         Shame on Yaesu for leaving it to the user's trouble and 
expense to fix their design mistake!  There are many FT-1000's in use 
today still clicking away.  I'll never be a Yaesu customer again 
because of their stone-walling this issue for ~15 years following the 
FT-1000D introduction until it was finally fixed in the Mark V.
