I wonder if any independent repair shops perform this mod? Has Icom improved the driver unit? The driver is buried in the chassis core and runs class A thus there must be known heating issues associated with it.

This pretty much explains that the problem (at least with driver
failures) is not due to excessive heat.

Bill (WY6V):

You will be very pleasantly surprised at how reasonable Scott Malcom's repair
rates are. I was !! And besides that, when he gets done with it, it will be
better than new (he does a full checkout & calibration, then leaves it
"burning-in" for awhile to make sure he didn't miss anything . . . I have been
very pleased with his work every time !!
