I just got a replacement IC718 for one i bought that was completely deaf, but this one is a bit strange aswell. It has no TX on the 40m band above 7100kHz. The TX icon dissapears when i go above 7100, and returns when i go below it again. The other bands that i checked seams to be working normally. Could i have gotten a radio for another country than my own? Also, i operate from a car battery that holds approx 12,4 Volts on TX and only get about 50W output power, is that normal? Im using the power cord that came with the radio.
