Nothing, nada, zilch. No effect whatsoever.
I'm going on a vacation and will be far from cell service most of the time. I really want this radio opened up for emergency use.
Anyone have any ideas?
Yaesu hasn't changed this radio, and the mod is the current version. I say try it with a good old fashioned solder and see if you get the right results.
