Re: IC-7000 VFO Stability

Hi,

Mine works very well in all bands except 432 MHz where there is a signinifcant drift in frequency when TX starts. However, I managed some DX on FT8...but several times I could not decode the signals because of the freq drift when RX cools down after TX period :-)
There is a quick solution to this....to put some thermal protection over the TCXO which otherwise is placed directly in the blow of the ventilator. See article on web:
