It's getting replaced for features, not functionality. Programmed for Denver, Colorado Connection and a few Utah repeaters but be happy to reprogram.

The one major repair I had to do was to replace the right side volume/squelch/power knob because of a sheared shaft. That was about 2 years ago, so the repair has been fully tested. :-)

I've got all the original manuals, boxes and what-not.

Hey Dave, definitely interested in the amp. Just picked up a VX-7R, so this sounds perfect. Will send a PM shortly.

Dave I need a new antenna for my 8800 if you have anything. The plastic base broke on mine.

Dave,

Would the FT-1500 be a good radio for a FJ40? Not that I actually ever really get the 40 out and drive it, but I've been thinking about putting a radio in it...

Just not sure about what you have vs. say a FT-1900 or even the FT-2900

Of course I'd prefer to put the FT-8800 in there because I love the dual band but I know it's been discussed that the FJ40 environment is too harsh for such a radio

Thanks Dave! Good info

Sounds like the better use for this little guy is what you were using it for vs. slapping it in a 40
