Hey everyone, I'm trying to find some older Yaesu and or Icom HF transceivers that still use through hole components in hopes they are easier to repair if something fails. Do you know what years ham radio manufacturers used through hole components? I have an older Royal CB from the 70s that uses all through hole, but I'm not familiar with older radios enough. I see beautiful old Yaesu's out there and would love one of those or my favorite brand Icom. My main rig is an Icom 7300, which I love. But I want an older radio or few that I can repair if something breaks as well. I want to stay away from tube radios because I don't care to play with high voltage and or rats nests of cabling under the chassis. Not to mention it is becoming more difficult to find a quality supply of replacement tubes. I want to stay away from SMD because it's so small and much more difficult to repair than through hole. Please feel free to make suggestions of models or give any tips. Please let me know if I am not thinking about it all properly either, I'm willing to learn.
