Has anyone replaced the female N connector on the IC 471A, 25 watt tranceiver PA module? It seems as if the heat sink is trapped between the N connector barrel and the PA circuit board. Unless the connector barrel pulls off of the pin, I see no way of removing it, or the circuit board to get at the pin. I don't want to use to much force in pulling off the barrel. Perhaps heating the pin might release the barrel. Any suggestions? Should I send it to Icom and let them worry about it?
