A quick video I put together for SOTA activators looking for other stations, using APRS2SOTA.
Rental trailer, two more trips to the dump.
How to replace a screen on a Yaesu FT2D amateur radio. This piece of equipment is essential to my SOTA operations, so it was important to fix! Also, learn from my mistakes and find out how to keep you SD card intact. Cheers!

I broke the LCD screen on my favorite radio. Luckily, a new display was $0.97 from Yaesu in California. A bit of exploratory disassembly and fiddling with zebra stripes, and the display is back to normal!
Yaesu part number for the LCD is G6090181
