Modifications and maintenance:

 

28 May 2016 - FTS-8px CTCSS encoder / decode module installation.

 

Installed a CTCSS encoder / decode module. The FTS-8px CTCSS is a direct substitute for the Yaesu FTS-8 unit that has long been out of production. The substitute FTS-8px module was purchased from Piexx Company https://www.piexx.com/.

The Piexx Company encoder / decode is a direct drop in replacement for the original Yaesu FTS-8 unit. This tone board was used in quite a range of Yaesu transceivers including the FT-736, FT2700RH, FT-2270R, FT-770, FT-767, FT-650 and others.
