Back in the mid 90s I talked to a guy in Pauls Valley, OK who had an FT 
101E.  He had made modifications to his for better audio, but I don't know 
if they mirror what you saw.  Recently another friend in Amarillo, TX bought 
another transmitter and sold FT 101E.  It also sounded very good on the air.

I agree with Paul, they can sound very good with minor changes.
