Unfortunately Yaesu has been blowing sunshine up amateurs behinds for years with similar statements. Mil-810 is a testing procedure guideline, not a certification. Its up to the military procuring agency to set the passing standards. Yaesu does not tell us anything about what tests were actually performed, number of units tested, the results and what they consider 'passing". p.s. The current standard is Mil-810-G, issued in 2008. Yaesu is two revisions and 17 years behind in using outdated standard "E".
