IC-718 mod: taking 7,1-7,2 MHz into use for TX

The IC-718 has a limitation: it can't send on 7100-7200 kHz. There is an easy modification instruction on the net:
Just one diode has to be taken off...I did it with a tweezer. It was a 20 minute project. When power was set on  after the mod, all rig settings went back to factory defaults. It's not a big problem, but it's good to know. To me it was a suprise.

The mod works: Now I can send on all frequencies 1,8-30MHz! Obviously I have to be careful now...
