Hi Marty. Interesting. Hadn't noticed it. Just pulled mine out and, below
the sticker at the right-hand end is 7D. I suggest it is more likely a
production batch run, not the month code. 7 would be the year, but Yaesu
hasn't ever built a month into its production codes, so I see no reason for
it to start doing it now.
