I've got a FTDX1200, purchased new about 4 years ago. Works great, except a small problem has recently appeared. The internal clock gains or loses several hours, but the minutes is correct. For example, I set the clock to 1530, and a couple of days later it indicates 1230. Has anybody experienced this problem? Since the minutes is correct, I don't suspect a bad internal battery, but maybe my reasoning is faulty. Any suggestions would be appreciated. If you have previously changed the battery and/or board with the clock circuit, what is the easiest / best way to get to that? I'm an experienced tinkerer / builder, but haven't opened the radio up before and don't want to dig unnecessarily.
Thanks VERY much.
