Re: ICOM excellent service
Thanks for the post! Usually, people only post gripes.
I also had to send an out of warranty radio back to iCom. I have an M34 handheld unit, which the squelch seemed to stop working. It locked on every channel, thus defeating the scan function. I sent it back to iCom 2 years after the warranty expired, and they repaired it, claiming that there was an ECO.
My enthusiasm was tempered, however, when the unit started to display the same symptom 6 months later. I have since learned that if I fully charge the battery, and then transmit (radio check), that the unit will work as it should for at least 6 hours.
