    Second FT-102 is on the bench at the moment. It uses 3x 6146s. At this rate I'll be keeping RF Parts in business.
    I've seen that with FT- 102, that not uncommon Fred, why no one seem to know, or if they do they are not telling.

    I think it's due to the fact that few know how to tune a hybrid correctly, Hank.

    Yaesu got it right with the Tune function and associated 10-second timer as used in the FT-90x. Why they didn't carry the functionality into the '102 line is anyone's guess.

    I asked Carol W4CLM about this and she never said what she thoughts are, but what you're saying makes sense.
