When transmitting, do NOT turn the VFO-dial to change the frequency. I did it to check if my SWR was right on the entire band, but the filter doesn't change it's frequency so the relays in the transceiver get quite hot because they switch the entire ouput power!

I had them repaired at the store and it cost me a lot of money.

It is an Icom IC-706-I, so no MKII or MKIIG or something. I don't know if Icom changed software for these new ones but if it is still possible, don't do it!

It is a perfect rig for HF, not mentioning the little flaw...
