Hey there, I just purchased a "new" frog. I noticed that there is a resistor across the antenna terminals(BC and SW). What is the purpose of this addition? Thank you.

It's there to block potential static charges, I believe...I'm pretty sure other high-end rxs like some of the JRC radios have a similar arrangement...Mike

Thanks for the info. That lines up with what someone else told me.
