Anyone done a Yaesu FR50B VFO modification (digital)

Hi.  The old FR50B is quite a nice Rx.  However, this budget rx needs modifications
to make some needed performance improvements.  Just wondering if anyone has done a
digital VFO mod.  I could simply put in a pretty stable VFO (capacitor tuned) and add
a digital frequency counter, but I'm really wanting zero drift and precise frequency
readout, and I think only a digital VFO will give me that.  VFO could also tune the
Tx.  So, if you have done all the design and put in a digital VFO, please let me
know. :c) Later on I'll probably be asking about a filter mod. I have the RadCom mod
articles by G3YUQ & A8346. I need the Rx circuit diagram. I wonder if it could be
emailed me. Thanks. Rich.
