Same thing just happened to me and it cost a new set of PA transistors, HF ,VHF and UHF.

Soliciting Ideas about No Output Power

Fellow Icom owners...

I’ve had my 7000 for several years. I use it a lot. I use it as my base station at home but often take it out to the field. It is my primary Field Day, JOTA, SET radio. I use it mostly for digital (PSK/JT65, etc) but also for VHF/UHF and all SSB/CW work.

Yesterday it stopped transmitting.

It still receives just great, but there is no power output that I can see.

1) I pulled the line fuses and cleaned up the blades on them. This made no difference.
2) I double/triple checked the antenna.
3) I’ve double/triple and more checked the RF Power and MIC gain.

I’m hoping its not the driver board but before I start taking it apart I’d like to solicit ideas from everyone else.


Thanks in advance and
73’s -- Keith, WA0TJT
