#117: Repair Log, Part 2: Yaesu FT-7800 Dual Band FM Transceiver, fixed 2m tx problem

A viewer of the part 1 video suggested that the successor radio (FT-7900) is very similar and uses a different part number for these PIN diodes.

This video shows the replacement process and bench check for 2 meter transmit operation. I deeply apologize for the lousy camera angle and video work at about the 9 minute mark.
