    I recently picked up an IC-701 transceiver. The PLL is unstable. I have schematics but not the complete service manual. Does anyone have one? I can't find one online. The manuals listed as service manuals are actually user manuals. Specifically, there are many pots in the PLL and am looking for the alignment instructions.

    Thanks and 73

    The Icom IC-701 HF transceiver was Icom’s pioneer solid-state HF transceiver of the mid-1970s,
    with a Digital Phase Locked Loop Synthesiser (one of the first).
    It also uses a Ledex Switch and Rotary Switch wafers.
