Yaesu FT-690R

The FT-690R is very similar to the FT-290R, but it also supports AM (instead of USB). This makes the receive IF a bit more interesting. There's also an AM modulator (Q2006) on the pre-pre-driver Q2019.

For the rest, the only differences are in the PLL frequencies and all the tuned circuitry of course.
