Answer is yes.
Look up your local Icom dealer.
They mostly are small communications companies (not big box stores like Best Buy etc) used to dealing with commercial customers but happy to see personal walk in customers too.
I would expect charge for basic programming to be around $50 - $60.

Sorry we have no way to look this up.

You will need the service manual to be able to do this and you will also need to purchase a 150 ohm carbon film resistor (no wire wound resistors) to simulate a 3:1 SWR to reset the onboard auto tuner base line for SWR. I believe you may find a service manual on BAMBA's website to download for free. The auto tuner is factory set to work up to a 3:1 SWR before it gives up trying to match the antenna. So, this is a resistor you will need or make up a 150 ohm load using a combo of resistors as long as they are not wire wound types. 73, Dennis

I usually replace all of my radio lamps with Ultrabright LEDs. They come in many different colours and usually fit the same mounting hole as the incandescent lamps. They will need a current limiting resistor in one of their leads, 2200 ohms to 4700 ohms at 1/4 watt works well. Leds are polarized so make sure that you get the polarity correct. Leds are also about 1/10 the cost of a similar incandescent bulb.

Most, if not all FM radios can have their deviation adjusted. Some times it is an internal pot, other times it is a menu adjustment. If this is a marine radio, the deviation may now have been reduced intentionally for the marine VHF bands, following the new VHF FM mobile regulations. ALSO, if it is a marine radio, only a qualified service center should adjust the radio.
