Title: IC-7610 Progressive Drive Loss Demonstration
Post by: VK3BL on December 01, 2017, 01:37:49 AM
Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to say that Marty from Icom Australia has been absolutely fantastic, and arranged to lend me their unit whilst they do a full root cause analysis on mine to ensure its an isolated incident :)

One thing I found amazing in this day and age is they didn't demand anything in return; they didn't ask me to say nice things, or to not talk about the failure, etc.  They lent me their unit with 100%, absolutely no conditions.

Once again, thank you so much to Icom Australia for arranging a Loan unit, for taking the time to fully check mine out and ensure ongoing product quality, and for not asking me to compromise my integrity in any way whatsoever.
