Would appreciate any help here. I have the icom IC-2730D and would like to expand the TX range. it currently has a range of upto 440Mhz that is standard. I have also looked up forums mentioning to remove the D307 and D315 diode, which should solve my problem . Unfortunately the unit I have doesn't have these diods similar to the 2730 and 2730A and am currently lost. Any help right now would be appreciated.

Have you seen this?

Edit; I think that is rx only, my bad.
Yes i have. Unfortunately i dont have the mentioned diods to begin with. Im thinking of removing the 2 diods that are currently there. But i dont know the consequences of this. I dont have the service manual as well. I have asked icom japan for this. I have seen some online videos that there arent any diods in any/all of those slots.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
