The ICOM IC7000 is a great little HF/VHF/UHF transceiver. It has many of the features of my IC7800, but in a smaller, easier to use form factor.


It also has an undocumented feature that the IC7800 doesn't -- it's a portable TV set!

Unfortunately, now that TV has moved to digital this doesn't really accomplish anything, but, well, I figured I might as well enable it anyway.

Here are some photos from the hack.

The solder jumper is just to the right of the image.  It comes pre-bridged, I carefully scraped off the trace with an xacto knife.
