I have the yaesu 101 twins, FR101s receiver and FL101 transmitter. Transmitter uses the stock 6JS6C tubes. The 6HF5 tubes can be made to use in it, with slight change on tube sockets (look up specs). These tubes can be gotten from 15 to 20 bucks, much cheaper than the stock tubes and have almost the same output. My FL101 was made to be able to use these tubes or the stock ones. I just purchased another pair of the 6HF5's at a hamfest locally for 15 bucks each, good old GE stock, and work great. I wanted to have some spares because we all see tubes are getting scarce. Hope this helps.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
