    I am trying to find a source for the carrier trimmer capacitors used in this rig. The CW carrier trimmer is 10 pf and the LSB and USB carrier trimmers are 20 pf. All three can be adjusted without removing the cover. With age they cause carrier stability issues. Designation in the Heath model are TC2001, TC2002, and TC2003.
    Currently my CW trimmer is healthy, but best replace all three if possible.

    Thank you & Happy New Year!

    Google Search Phrase: ceramic trimmer capacitors side tuning

    Did you contact Yaesu USA Parts ??

    Today, the majority of NEW trimmer capacitors are surface mount (SMD), instead of thru-hole.
    Murata : trimmer capacitors
    Knowles : Voltronics capacitors, Digi-Key and Mouser are distributors

    Knowles Capacitors
    Acquired these brand names: Johanson, Novacap, Syfer, Voltronics, and Dielectric Labs
    This migration was accelerated with RoHS (2003), when mfg. moved to No-Lead (Pb) parts
    and RF industry migration to GHz. Some decided to end thru-hole production (instead of spending capital $$), and focus on surface mount (SMD) with automotive/wireless/microwave industries.
    As you look through surplus, search for PC leg mount, Side Adjust.
    Erie, Sprague, and Johanson were major OEM suppliers.
