Howdy Chris:

My personal experience with the Yaesu repair facility in CA has been very 
surprising indeed ....they wanted to charge me $400 to replace the finals in 
an FT840 when you could buy one new for $500.........I don't call that 
reasonable.....might be more closely described as highway robbery:-)

I have not purchased a Yaesu HF radio since....and never will.  If/when my 
Ten Tec Orion requires repair I can be sure that I will get charged very 
reasonable rates for superior service....this is based again on previous 

My satellite radio is an IC910...no problems yet but I dread the thought:-)

Of course your mileage may vary (grin)
