Thanks for the reply.
Did you have to remove the relay to replace the FET? Just curious. I've got
my AG-35 down off the tower and on the bench now. The FET is so close
to one of the relays, I'm pretty sure it'll have to be removed to replace
the FET.. Any suggestions?

I fried my UHF one too...I order a couple from ICOM. With my very limited
electronics building skills i cut the dead one leaving as much
legs as possible and i resolder the replacement over the cut legs. Not
elegant but quick and effective. Is this is achieving the same
overall previous gain figures? that i don't know but it works.
I have another one to replace in a different type of preamp but the FET is
below a lot of other components and he's flat mounted (No legs)
i don't come up with a solution with this one?
