I gave up replacing bulbs more than a decade ago and only install high
brightness LEDs.  It is not difficult to find a suitable size replacement
and to make it work at the right voltage.

You will do the job for the last time.

Hello all..can anyone tell me whether the backlight bulbs for the FT5100 are

available through Yaesu or is there another source?? Part numbers are

I have 2 which are blown and I cannot decide whether to replace bulb for

or change over to LED backlighting.

Any opinions welcome.
