The 430 is a good rig Bob.  My buddy in Fieldbrook has one and it has the same problem as you.  He is a tech, but is getting a little older, and decided to have it repaired by another ham that does it for regular income.  He is happy with it again.  Anyway, that's my take on it.  If you need contact info, send me a note and I'll learn the fellow's name and send it to you privately.
