After many years of owning a Yaesu FT-2000 a new transceiver arrived at my shack.
The Icom IC-7700 is big and weights approx 25 kilos.
Mine is in very good shape and i’m looking forward to make radio contacts on the hf bands with this new toy.

Within a week Val of Acom send me the ribbon cable.
I soldered the connector of the cable on the new display and also connect both anode and kathode wires to the little swtich board.

Several years ago i bought my Acom 1000 from a local ham.
The only flaw was the display; some light bulbs failed but that was no show stopper for operate.
Because i planned to fix this issue i ordered a new display direct at the Icom factory.
These are no common displays also no common price!
A special bracket to hold the new type of display was also ordered as advised by Acom
For some reason the new display arrived directly on the shelf for some years....
But okay now in this Covid period i decided to fix the job.
First a safety warning : DUE TO HIGH VOLTAGES IN SUCH AN AMP, ASSURE THAT YOU WORK SAFE!!!
So convince yourself that the amplifier is safe to work on.
