[IC-7000] Re: THE SMOKE CAME OUT

Adam,
I hope not as well since my two 7000 just crossed the line....

It was my understanding that this was supposedly cleared up in production and with field repair retrofits With the addition of the larger metal conduction fingers?
Did your unit get changed?

Or can this be the resurgence of the missing thermal grease issue that prevented good heat transfer?

Best regards.

Hi Don,

There were a few IC-7000's a couple of years ago in which the thermal
coupling of the driver board to the chassis was inadequate, leading to
driver failure. I hope this issue is not recurring.

Cheers for now, 73,
Adam VA7OJ/AB4OJ
