Back in 1995 there was a 2-part article in QST describing some simple but extensive modifications to the ICOM IC-725 series transceivers. I'm thinking about tackling some of these but the circuit board looks jampacked and tiny even though it uses all through-hole components. So just wondering if anyone here has done these mods, if you found them worthwhile, and any hints about working on such a rig. (Mine is the IC-721, which is identical except for the PA section.)

The IC-725 was not popular. The IC-728 has a far superior receiver and this model was purchasedt by more hams. And, the IC-728 is rather rare itself.

The receiver has some shortcomings, but most of those mods are for the receiver.
