    For Sale - A beautiful Icom IC-725. I bought this from an estate sale, and the protective cellophane tape was still on the rig! Cosmetically and operationally - a 9.8 out of 10. Comes with original hand mic, fused power cable, original manual and a photocopied manual printed from the Icom website. Original box not available, but I will double box and protect this every way I know how. $375 shipped USPS CONUS. PayPal preferred. Sold as is and no implied warranties. Contact me at: wa8mea (at)

    Tell you what, Marc. You can come to my home and try out the rig. I will sell it for $350 and throw in a switching power supply that's just sitting in my box; brand new and never used.

    Or, I can meet you in Marshall so you don't have to drive that far. I will still throw in the power supply. (But you can't give it a test drive in Marshall.)

    I honestly don't know. I have never run FM on HF, so I have never even attempted it. And I don't want to open up the case to look, because I NEVER opened it myself and I would bet money nobody has opened it before. All the screws look totally unblemished. As I said, this was purchased from an estate sale and I was told the guy barely used the rig. Protective cellophane was still on the rig.

    I also took the rig out of line so I can't run it into a dummy load and test. Sorry.

    I have noted this question by others related to similar rigs. Is there a lot of 10 meter repeater operation in the big cities?

    Well thanks a lot fellas! I thought I would extend the courtesy of attempting to see if this unit had the AM/FM module. While transmitting on 75, and finding no output on AM & FM, the rig decided to quit working on 75 meters altogether!

    No good deed goes unpunished!!!

    Unless you make me an offer I cannot refuse...

    I am putting this away for an emergency rig. All the other bands work except for 75/80 transmit. So it will serve a good emergency purpose...

    Interesting. The spectrum that is no longer transmitting is from 2 MHz to 4 MHz. Everything else is FB.
