I've had my IC-211 since it was new in 1977. I sent it in for service at Icom in the mid-80s and they replaced all the styrene caps in the PLL. Scott Maclom, the Icom guru (http://www.angelfire.com/biz2/mts/
) redid that board again later, repairing a crack on the PCB, and it has worked fine ever since. I'd recommend you checking to see if he's still working on 211's as his work was great and reasonable rates.
