Have you checked the antenna?

Make sure you've got the plug installed on the correct SO239
at the back of the radio. (On the VHF and not on the HF).

Make sure the antenna mount, coax, and the connections to the
PL259 plug are still good.

If you have a VHF SWR bridge, check the SWR If you don't have a
bridge, use the power output meter on your IC-7000 on transmit.
If the power is folding back a lot, then you probably have an
antenna problem.

If your antenna and coax are all OK, then it sounds like you might
have to send the rig in to ICOM for repair.....
