I believe it does have the latest firmware. The Main CPU version reads 1.24. I disabled the mast mounted pre-amps thinking that might be the issue but the problem remains. There is no pop when I disconnect the 2 meter antenna from the radio and transmit on 70cm.

I have not experienced that problem. However, I did have some sort of desense on Mode B (2M up, 70CM down) until I finally updated the fireware on my 9700 a few days ago. Don't know what the problem was, but that cured it. If your radio is new you probably already have the newest firmware in it. If not, might try updating llke I did......

I have a new ICOM 9700 and I noticed what appears to be RF on the 2 meter band when transmitting on 70cm in satellite mode.
It appears as a short-lived popping sound and there's enough RF present to move the S-meter. It only happens when first keying the transmitter on CW, RTTY and DV. It does not appear on AM or FM.
Anyone else experience this?
