That is great news, Buddy. The TS-520 and I are old friends. I remember when they first came out. I also really like the Yaesu FT-101 series (hint-hint) which was the competition for the TS-520 radios.

Really looking forward to your posts on this.

This is what happens when the connector breaks and shorts the pins on the VFO cable. Below of burnt traces on the external VFO board.
