Icom 718 problems
« on: July 05, 2019, 1256 UTC »
Yesterday I noticed my radio seemed to be dead on receive. Especially being that it was July 4th and a lot of people were off work. It also seemed to have Shortwave splatter across all of 40 meters as well as other bands. My attenuator is working in reverse. I have to turn it 'on' to hear anything. I keep having birdies popping up all over also. I did make a contact on 20m USB last night. I'm worried it may have taken in some voltage some how. Any thoughts?
