No. Each radio is designed for the country of use and built at the factory that way. Cheaper to buy a new radio.

AT-180 ATU is not intended for IC-7300. Icom IC-7300 have a built-in tuner already. maybe you can use a special cable or interface to use the AT-180 on IC-7300.

If the radio is made to be sold only in the US then the phase lock loop is disabled when your are trying to transmit out of the US band edges. Try looking up a MARS circuit mod for this model and it amounts to only clipping one end of a diode to enable the transmitter on all frequencies.

If it can receive some signals that are close to you, then the RF front end protection diodes are likely shorted. This would require someone with expertise in surface mount components to repair. Take it to a dealer and have them look at it.

It could be that you have a power supply problem as it seems to be that way with both radios. Linear power supply pass transistors fail quite often. Switch mode power supplies aren't much better. Their electrolytic capacitors are quite often defective.

It sounds like the grease lubricating the shaft has hardened. OR, as I have read elsewhere, the shaft may have been bent. You may need a new encoder but first, I would try a bit of Isopropyl alcohol to soften the grease.

When a device or appliance doesn't behave as per the instructions there is little doubt that it is faulty.

Whether the item should be repaired or replaced depends on various factors, though it is worth contacting the manufacturer in case there is special advice they can offer.
