Re: Icom hf

Yes, it could be a bad microphone. I know of one sailor who had his Icom mic go bad -- it's certainly possible. I had a VHF mic go silent, while all other mic functions and controls were fine. Figuring out what was wrong was a bit of a wild goose chase for a while.

On the other hand it could be something else.

Yes will have to dig further, its a pain i thought it could have been my rope antenna but the general concensus is that if iam doing emails and grib files i should be able to yodel as well pac crossing soon so will have some testimg to do

Ditto on the bad microphone. Buying a second one may be the "cheap repair". If it is not, well, you have a spare mic. I always keep a spare mic just in case.
