Subject: [IC-7000] Re: Smoke



I have smoked three brand new IC-7000 (driver boards) within a few weeks of purchase. If the unit has been in Rx for a while, and smokes for no reason, it is probably the earth. It is an uncommon, but accepted by Icom problem, that if you have an IC-7000 connected to a really bad earth, i.e. it's more of an aerial than and earth, then this happens. Icom are researching the problem, but don't have a fix yet.



Either

a. Disconnect the earth entirely, or

b. Connect to mains earth, or

c. Fix your earth



I elected option b and have been trouble free for 6 months.
