Icom M73 Programming

Hi,

I need some help removing channels from some Icom M73's

Anyone know a local dealer to the North West that has the functionality?

Regards

Steve

If it's a regular need it might be worth getting the cable & software. Not used it for a year or tow, but it's very simple to use.

It's a one off, and it seems the cost of the cables for the newer units are quite high

That's a fair price I charge 25 through the workshop or a standard call out (41.50) onboard.

Have you tried contacting Icom direct? I've always found them very helpful. Sam, one of the team down there is a Ribnobbur. They might be able to point you in the right direction.

We do Raymarine, sailor, motorolla and Icom in house. Not standard horizon (not a fan nor a dealer) and simrad we have to send away.

This is bordering on a trade ad, sorry admim's. But it's also probably a useful future reference so I decided to post.

They will do it, but with postage its getting quite expensive.
