FT 990 and FT 1000 radio mods

Modification FT990-1000

I received a mod about Extended transmitter frequency range for the Yaesu FT990 and FT1000. Here's what you do:

Remove top and bottom covers. Remove top screw on each side which holds
front panel to chassis. Pivot front panel down slowly. CAUTION : if you
let it go, it will flop down rapidly and probably tear somethings loose.
Behind the meter will be the CNTL unit. It has a metal cover about 4 * 8
inches. Snap the cover off. Look to the top of the unit. You will see
JP-3. Remove the solder connection on JP-3.

***Note: I haven't tried or verified this, proceed at your own risk. And
do not transmit outside of legal bands!
