My late S/N '930 had issues with connectors. I used LPS-1 spray cleaner on all the connectors I could get to and the issues went away, and stayed away for 2 years so far...hi hi
Do check the VFO duty cycle, I think it is called, for a 50/50 ratio. Mine needed an adjustment to make the VFO tune more smoothly.
Scrap those noisy metal blade fans and run the largest muffin fan you can fit on the PS & PA heatsinks. The radio will operate nearly cold to the touch after the new fans and the PS mods are done. Gotta be more reliable without all that heat it generated bone stock.
Oh yea, another mod to reduce heat buildup, change the meter lighting to super bright LED's. http://www.we0h.us/Amateur_Radio_stu...gnal_Meter.jpg
The factory light bulbs ran screamin hot.
