Re: Yaesu G-5500 pilot lights?

I have long since given up replacing dial lamps, instead I use colourless
LEDs.

High brightness LEDs come in all shapes, sizes and colours and you will find
a suitable replacement for your dial lamp.  Measure the voltage, calculate
the correct resistor value and you will have replaced the lamp for the last
time.

Also, LEDs do not generate heat to turn plastic lenses and faceplates
yellow.

Hi,

Anyone know what the meter pilot light bulbs are in the controller?  The
schematic only calls them out as PL-1 and PL-2.
