IC730 Mod.

Post by Dazz » Tuesday 13th Jun 2006, 17:51

I have recently aquired an icom ic730 and am finding it very difficult to obtain information on how to get it to cover 11m.
It is, as you may or not be aware, not a general coverage receive rig and the mod is not as simple as cutting a wire to "open up" the transmit capability and as I do not have a service manual or schematic, I have no idea where to start.
Any help on this subject would be a blessing.
Cheers, Daz.

IC730 TX on all bands.

If your 730 is a late one look on the RF UNIT and cut a small (brown) wire, you should get full TX all bands.

It doesnt go there in the first place so cuttin' the wire wont help.
As I said it dont have general coverage receive.
Thanks for tryin' though.
If anyone else can help it would make my day as I cant find a 27mhz mod for it anywhere on the web. and i dont have a service manual 4 it.
cheers daz.
