Re: ICOM VHF repair (cheap) ???......... NOT SO
My IC-M422 was new in '09. Reception issue popped up this year (2015).
ICOM replacced the FI3 (or F13) filter on the main unit board.
They called it Warranty. No charge.
Fortunately, my loss of use did not occur at a critical time.
They should have called us. They knew.
I spent a lot of time validating my antenna system and bought a backup handheld before keying in on the ICOM.
ICOM is NOT a stand up company.
