IC-PCR – The RadioReference Wiki
The computer itself is still completely operational, and it can be easily steered into a controlled shutdown. Having only one antenna connection for such a wideband radio is no less than a sin. I believe this box to be able to do much much more than is currently ic-pr1000 offer through the software on the web.

My biggest disappointment at first icmo the choice of software. Grounding does nothing to help QRN. Loads of features even in the cheap kcom. It goes to show that software can change a rating and functionality of a radio. The bandscope function in the software is very useful here too. The PCR has loads of devoted fans, except here. The visualization of the radio and its features on the monitor is a pleasure to use.
The box itself looks to have been designed with some sort of military application in mind. I didnt do anything out of the ordinary to cause eprom erasure or modification Thank Gawd for the internal attenuator Besides that, being computer controlled with essentially unlimited channels, it’s a quite useful tool for serious scanning nuts. They seemed to be aimed at HF listening.
I get the impression it was something that Icom had lying around the warehouse that they wanted to get rid of! Ucom and such are needed if one does not like continuously changing antennas. I tried them kc-pcr1000.
Put simply the PCR is an excellent all round receiver that offers icm features than the rest for less, and given good programming skills I believe that there may be many more features available yet! 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 ic-ppcr1000 was farther away from the computer.
I have a Kenwood S sitting a few feet away and put an idom switch box where I could connect various antenna back and forth between the and the Pcr Will not receive SSB if the band scope is being used. Last fall I picked up a PCR blackbox receiver.
I can only excuse this faux pas because the radio covers such a wide frequency range that compromises had to be made. The HF Reception is on the poor side.
On HF it was hard to judge. The functionality of the DSP card is excellent reducing noise and pulling those really hard to hear signals out of the noise.
It works fine as a test instrument for tuning up receivers. Audio is good but you must run the system ic-prc1000 a seperate powered speaker system.
The oscillator is quite accurate and you can set your signal generator quickly to the desired frequency by zero beating in the LSB lcom. I’m not sure why the other reviewers I’ve read are so displeased. 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’m using a Diamond Discone and I’ve got all kinds of great listening. Click, click I seperate out what sounds interesting. On the other hand, if you connect a REAL antenna to this critter, batten down the hatches!
Each radio has it’s own eprom addresses so dont try using a backup from another PCR This setup combo would be a great monitoring tool for emergencies and drills. Overall tho it doesn’t seem to be too much of a problem. 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!!! I’m glad I went with my gut. Something that provides a REAL signal to this rig, like an 80 metre dipole, is going to send the front end into absolute conniption fits on HF The isnt exactly the greatest thing in the world for ALL band listening but it is better than fair.
TalkPCR I have to say is the much better version of software that is in almost daily use here at home.
I’m thinking of taking it to the next hamfest and seem how many different simplex frequencies it will log. I have owned the PCR for nearly 2. More information on TalkPCR is at http: My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. But when it’s bad, it’s horrid.
On LF and the AM broadcast band performance is competent, but nothing to rave about. I heartily echo the comments of a previous reviewer about the antenna Icom includes in the package
