• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have an IC-2720H that has worked well for several years. A few months ago, it forgot (dropped/lost/erased?) all of the frequencies in the memory and would not accept reprogramming. I was able to use it only my manually setting the desired frequency. Then in the last week, it would not turn on. I have tried all of the obvious solutions. Nothing works.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

I have an IC2820H,that I have to reseat the power connectors and mic connector pretty often. Seems strange,as I have several other Icom radios without the problem. Hope this helps.

I hate to say it, but the best thing you can do with a broke 2720 is throw it in the trash. It sounds like your radio has logic issues. 2720's are not worth repairing. Our club just tossed the last of our 2720's as they were too costly to repair. They are an outdated dual bander.

Not the news you wanted to hear obviously, but you'll be better off in the long run with a new rig.
