    Default yaesu 2800m

    i recently acquired a yaesu 2800m. after a couple of transmitions the screen started blinking and the radio would not transmit or receive. everytime i keyed up the frequency would go away on the display. the radio would not scan when i tried to. i took it to the guy i got it from and he opened it up and told me that i had modded it. i told him that i hadnt. he took it home with him and tested it and talked to another ham and then told me that i had burned up the pll transistor. what is the pll transistor? i thought that there was a driver, a final transistor and then a pre amp or receive final. am i correct? i thought that the pll was something like a micro chip. long black thing that has several pins. can anyone tell me if its the pll or the finals? any input would be great.

    thanks,

    Ed -

    The Yaesu FT-2800m radio has a number of well reported issues.

    FT-2800m eHam.net reviews from actual owners

    Newcomers to amateur radio need to stick with major amateur radio dealers, for first radios.
    Too many people getting ripped off -- with faulty/damaged radios -- Caveat Emptor !

    Thank u for the reply. I have read the reviews on eham and they were very insightful but none of them really delt with the issues I'm having.
