    I turned my ic-706 yesterday and the noise was way higher than usual when I finally found a local friend 2 miles away (he's normally 40 over) and he was barely above the noise. I know it was not the antenna because I tried it with my ic 7300 and mike was 30 over. does anyone know what could be wrong with the 706 and how to fix it, or it resail price with this problem.
