[amsat-bb] IC-821H problems

I'm having a strange issue with my 821. Periodically I lose all sensitivity, which I've particularly noticed on 2m SSB. I can attach and detach an antenna with no change in the noise level, and can't hear anything in the receiver (like the XW-2* beacons, or the AO-73 telemetry). Resetting the radio seems to fix it.

It doesn't appear to be affecting 70cm, although I haven't had much chance to test that (there's not always a mode j sat up at the same time as a mode b one, and when it happens I'm normally just trying to reset the radio as fast as I can do I can operate the pass). Has anyone experienced anything like this before?
