Well the rig runs hot and heat is the enemy of solid state components . From the number of heat related messages on this forum it seems to be a problem

I think I am going to challenge that statement. The IC-7000 rig is a very compact rig and it does tend to run warmer that some rigs. However, I am unaware of service data which suggests that for normal use this has any observable service impact.

Okay -Question or more Observation:

I joined this group for help. I been planning on springing for a 7000 since we had to dump the PRO III for money to move to senior housing.

The 7000 looks like a great rig, with all the research and studying I've doing, looks like a baby Pro III.

Big Concern though - everywhere I read somebody's 7000 Smoked or Burned up??!! The driver board is toasted. Burn't. Why are these rigs burning up? or was the first ones that came out?

I'm real skeptical now........WB0OAF
