    I ordered some today. Apparently it's like a microscopic double sticky zebra connector tape. I'm hoping it will work to repair the failed ribbon to LCD connection in my FT-895 and also those nasty missing pixel Jedi fronts we have all seen. They are saying it is rated at .4mm connector spacing but should actually worked to smaller dimensions.

    Interesting. Looks like a conductive tape would short out the circuits. Please let us know how it works out.

    That's the beauty about it, its not a conductive tape, its a tape with tons of small conductors in it running down its length.

    I'm hoping it will be here tomorrow and I will let you guys know how it goes. I'm really hoping it will work to fix the LCD in that 857. The spec sheet says it can handle temps up to 185 F too so it should work in a mobile environment.
