Vince's LED fix is the right one! However, several years ago, I was fixing
mine, and noticed the bulbs have series resistors which are not shown in the
schematic. I had spare bulbs from Yaesu, and replaced the resistors at the
same time with the next higher standard value. (33 ohms to 39 ohms, or
something close.) The loss in output was negligible, and they have yet to
burn out. When they do, I have LEDs set aside.

Has anyone come up with a bulb, led, candle anything that will stop burning
out in the control unit?
