Where do I start? I FINALLY got back into ham radio and received a IC-7410 for an early XMAS precent. Built a long wire antenna, hooked everything up and NOTHING. Unfortunately I have no test equipment anymore. Can I borrow someone's antenna at your QTH to see if it is me (home built dipole) or the rig? In this day & age I cannot believe it is the ICOM.

Needless to say, help would be appreciated.

Check them dang fuse connectors. Someone was mentioning problems with them. I cannot fathom that a new 7410 is DOA. I can see other problems out of the box, but DOA is strange. Also, find a local radio club. They will help.

By "nothing"...do you mean no output power, no contacts, or no "dasblinkenlights"....(display).
Those matter as to what might be the bug-a-boo.

If that one is anything like the 746 or 756 series, the RF gain control is a squelch when turned past 12 o'clock position. So if you turned that knob all the way up, the radio might act quite dead.

We are Coulomb of Borg. Resistance is futile. Voltage, on the other hand, has potential.
