Yaesu VR-160 LED modification

Yaesu provides the orange color backlight for VR-160. But I prefer green color than orange color. So I decided to replace its LEDs.

VR-160 uses 7 LEDs on a board. Red circle is the location of the LED. I used yellow green LED (OSYG1608C1A made by OptoSupply) for replacement.

The brightness of backlight is a little darker as a result. But I'm satisfied with this change.
