Re: [IC-7000] Good ICOM Tech for repair?

I am interested too. I have a oscillation running around in the front end of my 7000. When operating jt65 you can see it moving back and forth across the waterfall. Considerably worse if using a test load on the input or if the antenna is not loading correctly. Somebody gave me the name of someone in or around Wisconsin. I sent it into to ICOM in Seattle and the charged me $168 and didn't repair it. Not sure if I want to invest anymore $$$ with them.

My HF (especially) began getting noisy about a week or so ago. I
talked to someone else who said the static has been low. I tried
three different antennas and still noisy.
Now, my radio began turning itself off during transmission. I have an
IT-100 that seems to be doing wonderfully during tuning, and the
transceiver SWR has been reading 1.0-1.5. The radio is also shutting
itself off during transmission on VHF / UHF.
The temperature reading has not been within 3 bars of Hot . . . so I
don't know what is going on.
Can anyone recommend an ICOM tech / location? I seem to remember
reading something earlier, but cannot find it now. Mike, perhaps, in
Wisconsin or Minnesota?
Thanks, all. I have an elmer who will check my system this weekend,
but he's not a tech and quick to say that.
