Subject: IC-V8000 Mod
Heres the mod to extend the TX. I have seen this mod done and works
well and easy to perform.
Remove the 3 allen screws from the face and remove the face from the radio.
(Being careful of the speaker wires that are connected to the face and main
PC Board. Next locate the 2 small diodes located behind the volume and
squelch controls. Carefully, remove the diodes. (These diodes are very
small). A magnifying glass is useful to see them. Place the face back
on the radio. Connect power and antenna. There you go. Extends transmit
to 136 - 174 MHz. It may be necessary to do the factory reset procedure
to complete the mod. Please see your owners manual.
