    Only true if you actually use the band selector to change bands. You can watch this if you're a band-hopper. I'm now entirely satisified with the FT891.

    Yaesu fixed mine, changing over 20 parts see before

    and after

    Yaesu calls the repair kit "Cat noise"

    KOOL! I never thought the VFO multi knob gave you so much control....I assumed it would only cover the band. Oh well...we know the derivation of the word assume.

    Hi, hello everyone. LU2AOU, I am new here and my name is carlos from Argentina. I was looking something about my new Rig and I discovered this wonderfull site and wonder if anyone can help me and knows about an issue I have with my recently bought Yaesu FT 891. Everytime when I am in VFO with the Squelch OPEN, I press the key B (while this key is assigned with the function "SCP") hear a sound that comes out from the loudspeaker. This does not happens when the key "B" is assigned to other function. As I said it is a sound and not a relay.
    Well if anyone has an idea, I would appreciate it very much, thanks to all. 73, Carlos
