Interesting Technical manual on the VX-8xx series radio

I found an interesting file. It's a technical supplement on the Yaesu VX-8xx series.
It contains the alignment of the unit, i have tried and it works. Be carefull tho, if you mess with the settings your radio might be funked out. You can even destroy it cause this things can even change the power output of your radio. This might burn the final output stage of the radio.
I have warned you.

The next step

The next step on my small project will be a firmware dump of my VX-8. My version is the bluetooth corrected software. I've seen that the first versions of this handheld had problems on pairing and yaesu released a new firmware update on this. The seller i got it from claimed this had a new bugfree version.
A firmware dump might give us something to play with.
Seems to be a pain in the ass.
