Hi Tony,

I assume you are referring to the IC-R7000 scanning receiver (not their R7000 transceiver).  If I recall, it's on the bottom side somewhere, pretty easy to access.  It's a coin type, but with tabs that solder onto two posts on the PC board.  Be VERY careful about static discharge and such when doing the surgery, and remember that you are operating on a live circuit.  I managed to zap mine, and it more than lost its mind.  Had to send it to a shop for repair, and then I had to nag them to fix it as they decided to try to go out of business after I sent it...

Good luck,

Greg  KO6TH
