    I shall take another look online, awaiting service manual to arrive, pretty sure the instruction manual doesn’t mention it

    Well if there is no pot to adjust this, it's Yaesu scrimping on costs again in the Z series ! (compared to the original FT101 series, where there is a pot)

    You may have to change fixed resistors that have changed value. (there has to be resistors equivalent to the Clarifier pot centre position)

    Have you tried cleaning the Clarifier on off switches? (both Rx and Tx)

    Hi Rodger,
    No I haven’t cleaned clarifier pot as yet, maybe worth doing, volume a little scratchy to.
    I shall look into the resistors around clarifier, and get back to you on that

    No, not the Clarifier Pot . . . it's the two Clarifier SWITCHES (Rx & Tx) that could cause problems if they're dirty.
