Ah, the li’l 706: What can I say? I like it! It performs like big radio, but it’s small. It sounds good, and it’s well made. You can add the remote kit and put the control head and the radio box where ever you want them. They are reasonably easy to expand, calibrate, and connect to a computer.

This series of articles is a handy compilation of most of the mods and stuff I have developed or found on the web for the 706MkIIG, plus a chronicle of the little accessory kits that I have built to enhance my enjoyment of the 706.

2011 Update: My 706 blew its main processor (IC2001) a while back. I am looking for a MkIIG Main Board. If you have dead MkIIG with a good main board, I may be interesed in purchasing it for a reasonable price. Contact kv5r at kv5r dot com.

  1. Hi!
    I had a bad accident with my ICOM 70MK2G and both potentiometers from front panel need to be replaced! How to get them? On e-Bay I found other things! Pse help!

    • You need to either disassemble the front panel and get the part numbers off the pots, or from the 706mkiig service manual (free online), then contact an Icom service center. But Icom parts are expensive so first try to find OEM equivalents from mouser or some other big parts supplier.
