funny thing is my kenwood does 100 watts on ssb same with the 450d using the same meter. so why the low output on ssb with the icom. i dont care about am as i never use am
yes im going to do the fix.
just a shame you pay 1.500 bucks and you have to modify it right out of the box. soon as i read the service manual a few times so i dont brick the radio
thanks for everyone's help.
i was running the mic gain at 50% no compresson
well i ordered the e Heil ICM microphone. hope your right
cost me almost 200 dollars for the mic the stand and the cable for the mic. and the foot switch they were out of stock. they said they would have more in 2 weeks
i find that hard to believe a stock mic sounds better then a heil mic.I have a Heil pr40 but my friends all tell me the stock mic sounds best and loudest. The stock mic really drives my rig.
Good luck jon666
