Re: IC-7000 Intermittent recieve

Is it just receive or are you loosing transmit? I have a problem with my IC-7000 that may not be what yours has but might be interesting.
My IC-7000 that I've used mobile for years developed a problem that was both TX and RX on HF only. It was intermittent, particularly on bumps, but getting worse and didn't matter which band I was on. I thought it was the T/R relay between the amp and the filter selection, which also carries RX signal.
When I got into it I found that it was the logic module on the top of the radio that was intermittent and causing that relay to not pull in, and perhaps other issues. I pulled the logic module and cleaned the two connectors that plug into the board below. That seemed to settle it down. Thought I still had an occasional problem but then found a problem at my antenna. Seems to be good most of the time but think I've seen the problem come up a couple times since, although only for a short time.
I exchanged E-Mail with the Icom tech here in MI and he says this can be a problem with the logic module and the solution is to replace it. The only problem is doing that also requires a full alignment, so the cost of the module and labor is about that of a good used IC-7000. An IC-7100 might work in my vehicle but it's a bigger display and I like how things are setup currently.
I figure I'm going to live with it for now and if it becomes are regular problem again I'll go back in and see if I can't find exactly where the problem is.
Good luck with your radio.
