"The Radio Reclamation Center"
E-mail me first. Before you ship the radio, I
will make an attempt to diagnose the problem.
Pack your radio in the original shipping carton and a second outer carton packed with bubble pack
or "popcorn" packing.
(PLEASE! do not include microphones or power cables.)
If you don't have the original box, make sure that there is enough packing on
the front panel and double box the radio.   If I receive a radio without the factory shipping container,
when I repack the radio, I normally roll up a length of bubble packing the width of the front panel,
about 6 to 8 inches thick, and tape it to the front panel.  If the box is dropped, It will provide extra
cushioning and protect the knobs and dials.   If the front feet are long, remove them.   If the shipping
container is dropped flat on it's bottom, It can damage the radio's bottom cover
Include a note explaining the problem and a phone number or e-mail address where you can be reached.
Ship it to the address below.   I will estimate the repairs and notify you either by land line or by e-mail.
For your Icom IC-R71, IC-745, IC-751/A, IC-271A/H, IC-471A/H or IC-1271A
We can repair the Icom factory installed "RAM Unit" by replacing the original battery with a high capacity
lithium cell.   We can also recover the 32 memories from your radio, and save it to a computer file (it can
only be done if the battery isn't completely discharged).   We will then reprogram your memory board using
the computer file or we can use our own computer file that extends the frequency range of you radio from
10 KHz to 31MHz (your memories will be lost).
For memory Repairs, remove the memory board from your radio and place it in an antistatic shipping
bag along with a note that includes the Icom model number and the type of file (i.e. saving your settings
or extended frequency). Send it to the address below along with a personal check, money order or
cashier's check for $48.00 plus $10.00 Shipping & Handling($58.00 total). The International price is $48.00
