an Icom 735 Ken. Not sure what s 753 is (other than a typo
will box it up and send to your QTHR if that is your
preference delivery point? I have matching power supplies,
but they are linear, and weigh a fair bit. Do you have a
power supply you can use? It uses one of the older 4 pin

Wow! I only posted that request 10 minutes ago! You'd do
what? My 3000 started to play up on Friday resulting in no
drive and the need to factory reset from the front. having
done that it did the same thing a couple of times more and the
internal keyer failed to reset as part of the proceedure.
After trying to make it wake up with much intervention from
Phil G4UDU we came to the conclusion that we couldn't reset
the internal keyer ourselves. So I spoke to Steve the head
fixer at Martin Lynch who said he'd never seen that before but
that since my 3000 was still in warranty I could send it in
but he has a 3 week backlog of repairs. It did work today (
all but the keyer) but I'm not happy wondering when if its
going to fail again.
So.. if you have a working Icom 753 I'd be glad to have it as
a fall back. Does it have an internal keyer? What do we do
now, can you email it to me!
Let me know how we can proceed and thank you for your so

My Yaesu FTDX3000 has started playing up
and, if I am to continue to run the MSARS HF nets I must
have a reliable transceiver or a stand by rig. Has anyone a
second rig that they are considering selling or part
exchanging in the near future? If so I'd be glad to hear
from you. Thanks. Ken
