Icom IC-2GAT - no Xmit

Post by n1dec » Mon Feb 12, 2018 8:45 pm

Hello to all Icom fans.
I have acquired what seemed to be a good old IC-2GAT.
Everything seemed fine. Memories work, RX works, etc.
But when I go to XMIT the display and the XMIT LED flash at a about a
5hz rate. No output is detected.
I tried all frequencies and modes.
I tried to reset the unit by holding the function and light switches in for a while to not effect.
Battery looks good.
Anyone have any ideas?

Sounds like the battery is unable to supply enough current capacity
or if you are using a power supply its not able to handle the load.
Without anymore info that is all i can suggest.

Hello guys,

I have also an ICOM IC 2gat which was so good until one day i decided to use my 13.8 power supply on it using a DIY battery case. At first it was ok, but as i use it longer the power went off. i try some remedies but to no avail. Is anybody knows what was the problem of my ic-2gat? Thanks & 73.

Without elaborating on what remedies you have already tried you won't get much of a response.
No one has a crystal ball and can have any idea with as little as you have revealed.
