These are a good radio, you will of course need it wide banding, but they work very well on 11m

Thank you for letting me know.
I have now purchased this radio, before getting it wide banded i thought its best to check it hasn't already been done.
It works on all frequencies at full power except [sign in to see URL] which it transmits at 20 watts.
its this normal for a icom 706 mk1 or has it got a problem ?.
please let me know.
thanks
Wayne

I'm not sure, I'll do some internet searching, but it should be the same as 10m band?
