Hopefully this isn't in the wrong place I don't know how to use these forums. My 857 receiver doesn't seem to work. Maybe I have something wrong in the settings. After power on it doesn't receive and then after maybe 5 to 10 seconds it comes on but is very choppy. It eventually comes on fully and is fine (I think) for a little bit but is still rarely intermittent. After transmit is will lose rx for the same period of time that the startup caused. Any thoughts on what I should do? I know something is gonna need to be fixed or replaced so I need to learn how to do it myself because I don't think Yaesu will fix it and If they do I think its gonna really cost me. Oh I should say I dont use it often and when I do its portable. Thanks for the help.
