My Yaesu VX-7R has provided good service for many an activation now. It has mainly been used for ascent comms with Jimmy M3EYP, as a back-up rig on summit, as a smash-and-grab rig on summit in poor wx, or to conveniently offer a summit on 2m and 70cm at the end of a CW activation.
But it needs a little attention, due to two missing or broken parts. The little stub that screws in at the top of the rubber duck is missing (thankfully I haven’t lost the larger section for 6m). Anyone got any spares or know where I can get one?
The black plastic disk accessory that screws into the back of the set to enable it to be used with the belt clip mount is broken. Same question…
A friend of mine here in Macc has an FT-817ND in good condx available. He is interested in swapping/part-exing for an 840 or other simple HF base rig.
