    RADIOHF - YAESU FT-950 [​IMG]
    I have a Yaesu FT-950 (only used as a back up radio), it is in good overall working condition, a 10 electrically, a few minor scratches. It has the power cord and mic. I believe I have a copy of the manual on CD, but you can download. I will package it well, as the original boxes are MIA! I got it used, and it has been covered since I have owned it. $625 shipped lower 48. No paypal, and no trades, have too many radios. Bob NK1C

    Your rig would be working fine if Yaesu didn't forget to install the cardboard. :)

    Just a suggestion.
    E mail Yaesu with your concerns and include the photos you have posted here.
    I think it's worth the 5 min to give it a shot.

    Good deal. That really looks too clean for something the average ham did. The bends are neat, solder looks good, the insulation around the center leg of the transistor. Looks like the transistor and cap are glued down also.
