My IC-7000 smoked the UHF output finals a few years ago & I sent it to
Malcolm Technical Support (http://mts-icom.wixsite.com/hamradiorepairfor a quick repair. I have had Scott Malcolm repair several of my Icom radios
(I have never sent any of them directly to Icom) & his work has always been
excellent, quick, & inexpensive. He'll even do a bench check & provide you
a $$ estimate before the work begins if you'd like.
In the case of my IC-7000, he was able to repair the UHF failure & also found
the soldering in the VHF section to be questionable, so he cleaned that up as
well. He applied the new grounding springs & tested everything before sending
it back to me . . . it's been flawless ever since.
From my personal experience with several Icom radios sent to him for repair
(IC-706MKIIG, IC-7000, IC-756PRO, etc.) over the years with a variety of needs,
I would personally highly recommend Scott Malcolm to get your Icom radio
Good luck !!

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.
