Hello Vince.
I can't help with a source, but I have the same problem with the meter lamps
As there is plenty of 12V available perhaps there is a white LED solution that someone has discovered.  Then it will be a fix for life.

Anyone know off hand the voltage and current rating of the
meter lamp in an
FT-736 and hard it is to get too? Replacement

When I have it apart I
need to address scratchy pots issue too
with the AF gain, squelch, RF gain, and
mic gain.  Anyone ever
taken care of that? What cleaner to


Happy 4th
