    I am about to buy a FT-900 and it needs a bit of work. Apparently the issues thus far are:

    it receives fine up to 21.5MHz. above that fails. There are 4 VCOs in the radio and the upper one seems broken the other 3 are fine.
    it seems to transmit at full power on CW, AM and the AM modulation looks ok on a spectrum analyzer
    the SSB is funny. the carrier is not fully suppressed, but does seem to have a low and high SSB signal.

    It is rather inexpensive but then again you get what you pay for.

    Anyone ever repaired one of these rigs?
