This is from [sign in to see URL]

I haven't done this myself, but providing you're reasonably competant, should be ok. \Make sure you use the correct tools emoticon

"TX range expansion on HF, VHF and UHF is very simple. When modified the radio will also transmit AM mode in the aircraft band with approximately 1 watt at 118 MHz to about 17 watts am carrier at 136 MHz.

On MAIN BOARD under speaker near Xtal you can see two rows of solder dots for SMD components. Only on position 10 (from left) is diode (D2030), which is necessary to remove.

Thats all.

After connecting power radio will be reseted and TX range is expanded."

There is more information on there for IC 706,\ but you'll need to register and you're allowed one access per day emoticon

Re: Icom wide band mod


ive done the mod for wideband tx on the 706mk2 and the mk2g. its straight forward, make sure the radio is UNPLUGED and that you wear a static strap/band just in case. a fine soldering iron is needed so is a good pair of tweezers. oh and a pair of good eyes.
