Dear owners of an IC-706MKIIG,
I have one IC-706MKIIG along with an IC-706MKI.
I’m currently using the MKI for my remote station connected to my TH5-DX tribander yagi and I have the MKIIG in the rental appartment connected to the endfed wire in the balcony.
I bought the MKI first and the MKIIG later, both in the second hand market and in absolutely perfect condition with not a minor scratch or sign of wear, just like they were brand new ones.
I find annoying that when inserting the typical 3.5mm stereo jack of either my earbuds or headphones on my MKIIG, I can only hear on the left side, while doing that same thing on the MKI provides perfect audio on both sides. The problem of having audio on one side only when plugging the stereo jack on the MKIIG would be easily solved by inserting a stereo-to-mono converter jack but I find weird that such a thing be needed on the MKIIG when it isn’t needed on the MKI, so before purchasing one I wanted to ask you.
Do any of you have that same problem with your MKIIG?
Do you use a stereo-to-mono converter jack or have you solved the issue in some other way?
