|I've searched the internet over and over to see if someone was experiencing a power problem in their Icom IC7000. I was seeing 60watts out of a 100 watt radio and no apparent reason for the problem. I was about ready to pack up my IC7000 and send it in for repair. Thankfully another ham operator had heard about the problem and informed me to try something before I too more drastic measures.
His recommendation? There are two fuse holders in the the DC Cable for the IC-7000. The suggestion was to cut these fuses/fuse holders out of the cable and hook it direct to the radio from the power supply. Once I did this and hooked it up to my power supply, a dummy load and keyed the radio up there it was the 100 watts that used to be there. So if you are having power problems you might want to do the same and see fi that helps out.
