    Folks, I have only used my radio for HF, recently I tried to use with VHF and I was told by a friend who helped me set it up that it had been mod'd. I was wondering if anyone could show me what it should look like pre-mod ( I want to put it back as new). I don't have the serial number handy. Has the circuit board ( jumper layout) changed over the years? Sorry to be a pain, love the radio, don't need extended TX, want the VHF auto repeater shift function back. Thanks for any help

    Good question Rainer, and what did u decide and how did it work out? keep 1&2 or unsolder? 6, 7, 8 and 9 are settled but what's the verdict on 1&2 I just bought a new 857 from hamradio.com and would like to know as well....
