Years ago, I bought a new Icom ICT7H HT brand new. This has been a great radio for a number of years, and from my recent research, sounds as if this was one of the better built units that have since been discontinued. Imagine that! Onto my question. I'm trying to find a replacement speaker for the unit as I have had zero luck online. Also, when I recently took apart the radio, where the solder meets the board, there appeared to be a very thin paper like material that was under the solder, face down on the board. It had a brass like color to it. Once I can find a replacement speaker, does anyone know if this is required for normal operation? I hope I'm not being to vague here. If it comes down to it, I could possibly post pics to further explain. I'm hoping to be able to get this dual band rig up and running again; surprisingly they still sell for a decent price online. Thanks!
