Questo, unito alla piacevolezza di fare un lento scan della gamma ruotando comodamente la rotellina del mouse, sono le cose che rendono questa radio unica. I have the dsp module installed, a Radio I-cpcr1000 Discone ic-pvr1000 about 25′ in the air and I can listen to anything I want short wave, music, news, utilities, ham radio.
Running the stock software under Windows 95 I’ve had a few problems with it. With only a few things to bitch about. Thank Gawd for the internal attenuator The broadcast stations seem to come in ok but for utility listening it iclm perform as well as my Drake R8B HF receiver but that isn’t a fair comparsion since they are in a different class.
I’m using a Diamond Discone and I’ve got all kinds of great listening. The DSP card is so simple to install a child of 3 could do it with ease. The radio can’t be judge on just the radio since you need software to control it.
Thank you for reading. Besides that, being computer controlled with essentially unlimited channels, it’s a quite useful tool for serious scanning nuts. The computer itself is still ic-pcr100 operational, and it can be easily steered into a controlled shutdown. The visualization of the radio and its features on the monitor is a pleasure to use. One place icc-pcr1000 I found the PCR to be a standout performer is in chasing weather satellites.

I have a Kenwood S sitting a few feet away and put an antenna switch box where I could connect various antenna back and forth between the and the Pcr TalkPCR I have to say is the much better version of software that is in almost daily use here at home. The PCR has loads of devoted fans, except here. However a newer version of the software was released recently to allow people with more modern MS operating systems a chance to play. Diplexers and such are needed if one does not like continuously changing antennas.
The isnt exactly the greatest thing in the world for ALL band listening but it is better than fair. Click, click I seperate out what sounds interesting. It works fine as a test instrument for tuning up receivers. The functionality of the DSP card is excellent reducing noise and pulling those really hard to hear signals out of the noise. More information on Probe1K can be found at http: The software has some great advanced scanning features like “TacScan”, “Hyperbanks”, “Smartbanks”, searching, great frequency management and logging features.
The receiver itself does suffer from the temperature problem described in other reviews, however you could remove this problem by drilling a few holes in the case and fitting a micro fan to disipate the heat out from the box.

Overall, having this radio and its flexibility on your computer screen is unique and using an outboard powered speaker will provide many uc-pcr1000 of listening pleasure. It can scan faster and lock onto tones faster then any other PCR software out there. New to Ham Radio? Having only one antenna connection for such a wideband radio is no less than a sin.
It can’t begin to compare to a quality dedicated rcvr, but it does what it was designed to do and does it well. I think Icom has done a fine job. ix-pcr1000
I recently added the DSP module to the rig, but haven’t yet had much opportunity to play with it. If your need is for short wave listening, I would not recommend it as it easily gets overloaded on strong signals and there is virtually no way to reject unwanted signals.
There is a form of lockup that occasionally happens in which the computer ic-pcr10000 port apparently stops talking to the radio, and it sits there mute. Each different program has a few neat little options which will keep you interested for a day or two If you buy one dont even think of running it until you back up your eprom.

I didnt do anything out of the ordinary to cause eprom erasure or modification IMHO, if you have to take the radio to an Icom shop to have it put in, you might as well turn in your ham license!!! It goes to show that software can change a rating and functionality of a radio. I found the rcvr adequate in sensitivity on HF; you are not going to chase DX with this thing but 40M listening was good.
More information on TalkPCR is at http: On the other hand, if you connect a REAL antenna to this critter, batten down the hatches! I did have some computer noise problems at first but a lot of them went way after I put a choke on the external speaker leadn-in and moved a different antenna that was farther away from the computer.

I find that this one’s a specialist rig, showing it’s finest qualities in some jobs, and giving you the Fickle Finger in icoj Make no mistake about it My biggest disappointment at first was the choice of software. Although it may not be a specialised as one or two of the competitors, it is cheap and flexible enough to give a good overall performance.
