    Default Frequency drift problem on Yaesu FT 890

    Have just tried a solution to my frequency drift problem on one of my two Yaesu FT 890 HF amateur radio Transceivers. Found the solution on U Tube but have not yet plugged it in to try it out.

    Will know how it works here shortly but first some lunch. Thinking about some Chinese lunch...

    Soon enough...will post back...on this thread..

    If it does not work I will debate sending it to the factory or having an expensive boat anchor....pickling up a new Transceiver.

    Had problems with the power cord and final worked that out. Still working on the drift problem.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Does the problem go away after the rig has "warmed up"? If so, that might point to a resistor. It may have developed some internal cracks in the ceramic, that close as the material heats. Finding it might be challenging.

    No...it continues as the rig is warmed up.
