W8HMK Icom 756 Pro III LED Upgrade  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is not a review of the product but rather a review of the service provided by VE3TMT - Max - as I am preparing to have my 756 Pro III upgraded. I purchased the kit from Max which arrived today with the step by step installation instructions. Looks like it may be a bigger job than this old guy is capable of doing. Sent an email to Max asking if I decided not to do it but wanted him to do it would that be workable. I had a response within 15 minutes - maybe less - telling me exactly how that could work. I asked several more questions and again had very prompt, helpful responses from Max. I am proceeding with great confidence that I will receive excellent service in a very professional way. Thanks, Max!

Awesome upgrade !!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Just received my Icom 756 Pro II panel with LED Backlight upgrade back from Max. Just got the panel installed, and WOW !!!
Great product / and Job.
He now sells the Backlight in a Kit form.
If you own a Icom 756 Pro this kit is a "MUST".
Even if your display's backlighting is okay will fail in time.
And this is the only solution. In the backlighting circuit there are 4 common parts that of which is that is "not" available anywhere.
Thanks again Max

Well worth it!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
VE3TMT, Max, kept me updated on the whole process from the time he received the PROIII panel along with pictures of his work in progress- until I received it. He emailed me making sure that I was pleased with his mod. The LED display is brighter with easier to read letters and numbers on the display. I am very pleased! The cost may "seem" expensive upfront, but if you plan to keep your PROIII for a very long time, this LED mod is worth it! One word of caution: if you haven't shipped to Canada for a long time, check with MAX about the potential "excessive" (IMHO) Canadian Customs fees before you ship! Thanks Max, VE3TMT, for a great job!
