Hi all

Ive got an Icom IC-7000. It has recently been giving me problems in two areas.

1) It is giving low output (like seriously low output) on all bands except VHF, UHF and 40 meters; which I get about 50% of stated wattage on these.

2) When working 40 meters and Ive been speaking to a local contact then it would suddenly cut out (not voltage) but like band almost, absolutely NO TX or RX. I then reboot radio and works again until it happens again.

Any obvious reasons for this.

All help will be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes from Cape Town, South Africa

Check the fuses/fuse holders.  Those fuse holders often get loose.  I snipped them out and replaced them with good automotive blade fuse holders and fuses.

Another vote here for the fuse holders.

See this very recent posting on the same subject:-

Sometimes a simple search will quickly answer questions such as this without the need to ask.
