[Yaesu] FT-450 Tuner acting weird

Hi George

It is the same with 2 different antennas.  With he tuner off, both of 
the antennas are resonant about 3530.  It was working about a week ago 
and then all of a sudden it just quit working on 80. Funny that it works 
OK on all the other bands.

The funny thing is that I can hear the tuner trying to tune but the 
lights flicker and then go out.  When it gets done, the SWR is pegged 
out, even on the frequency the antenna is resonant on.

This is the radio that I usually keep in my camper for summertime 
camping.  I just brought it in to check it out last week. 73
