FT-101Z and FV-101BM

Hello Barrie,

Here's what I will suggest for you to do, Go to the Fox Tango main page and click on the Download Files for U.K..

Then scroll down to the FV-101Z Analog VFO and Download that PDF File to your computer.

Next go to the FV-101DM Scanning Digital VFO and Download this PDF File to your computer.

Once you have both files copied to your computer, you can open them up and do an A versus B comparison between both VFOs. You may come to the same conclusion that I did. I do not think it's worth your time and energy modify the FV-101DM Digital VFO to make it compatible with either a FT-101Z Mark I or Mark II H.F. transceiver.

The only YAESU FT-101ZD Mark III H.F. transceiver that is compatible with the FV-101DM External VFO. It's not like you don't have another H.F. transceiver to fullfill the External VFO Function.

These are my opinions.
