Yaesu FT-301D HF Transceiver Capacitor Replacement Kit

This is a complete electrolytic capacitor replacement kit for the Yaesu FT-301D HF transceiver (external power supply excluded). The FT-301D is certainly a collector's item for the vintage ham radio enthusiast. I have been restoring ham radio equipment for years, and electrolytic capacitors have a design life span which one has to recognize if the intent is to keep your FT-301D running for a long time to come.

Included in the kit is an installation guide to help those along who might feel a bit nervous doing this type of board work.

** There is no retuning of the radio required as the capacitors being changed are power supply related, or audio coupling/decoupling. Minor adjustment of the VOX controls may be required when new capacitors are installed.

** Installation Time is approximately 4 hours from start to finish for an experienced technician. For all others take your time and enjoy, its a great project!
