Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

You might inquire with

Willco Electronics

3408 Avondale Lane
New Lenox IL. 60451
Tel:(###) ###-#### - Call between 10am and 4:30pm CST

as to whether they repair your model still. I would say that if they don't, it is less likely if not impossible that someone else *does* repair the VXA300 model.

You might also contact Yaesu themselves with a General Inquiry as to whether they service, or know of a company that does service, the Yaesu VXA300 model:

http://www.yaesu.com/?cmd=contactus

Lastly:

The FTA-310 model is a more modern replacement for the Yaesu Vertex VXA300 transceiver.

- Does this answer your question, or do you need other information, e.g. as to Yaesu servicers in your region (if so, please Reply To Expert with your local town/city and state) ?
