This morning I decided to do some work on the good old Kenwood TS-2000.
The MULTI/CH encoder is operating erratic and has getting worse lately. I replaced that with new one.
Replaced the 144MHz UHF-type antenna connector with a N-type jack.
Installed the 1.2GHz Tx Distortion mod/fix by VE2ZAZ
It seems like the VHF finals in my TS-2000X has failed. Dammed!!!!
UPDATE: Finals OK, the culprit was a loose connector.
