The AGC is not the culprit. FT-1000's are notorious for sticking relays, from D 
to MarkV. This topic was also discussed on the FT-1000MP reflector just a few 
weeks ago.

I have had the receive desense after transmitting problem with my FT-1000MP 
as described.  When I come back from a transmission, the AGC frequently seems 
to be swamped and the receiver front end acts like it is shut down.  I have 
to click the mike key a couple of times to get the receiver to open up again. 
 This is bad especially in contesting.  

I had an oscillator quit that supported xmit from 14,500 to 21,500, so I have 
sent the radio the Ham Radio Repair (Milton Lord) and he will look at the AGC 
swamping problem.  Don't know if he will have a ready fix or not.  For a 
while I was just turning the AGC off and then rolling the RF gain to the 
point where the receiver would open up most of the time after transmitting.
