|Repair of ICOM IC-28A, -28H squelch pot plus battery replacement
A three-page report on replacing the squelch pot in this older Icom 2-meter FM radio. If yours is bad this is how to fix it. This is a good, rugged radio well worth fixing if possible. Icom will not repair this radio since it is an older model.
four-page report details the repairs I made on a burned out probe. I
replaced two diodes and one P-Channel FET in the probe. Note added April 2016 (see last page of document)
