I have just obtained a FT-101E "nostalgia boatanchor" to play around with - had one of the originals way back when.
On the older one I had, I had installed upgraded FET's in the receiver front end that greatly improved sensitivity on the higher bands - especially 10 meters.
I think the replacements were RCA devices, but don't remember the exact number, and am hoping someone here might have that older mod info or something similar they can share with me.
The only currently related mod I see, is the 3N211 replacing the 3SK40M's - has anyone here tried that, or any other similar devices to improve the upper band FT-101E sensitivity?
