The Icom IC-706 was my first TRX and accompanied me during my whole Ham-life.
The issues of the TRX are well known but I'm very satisfied with it.
Actually it's only modded for DRM reception.
The famous yellow wire mod is planned since I now have a backup with my Kenwood :-)
I'm already looking for some time HI and a way to remove the wire a way I can plug it back
into the connector.
