If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager. But when it’s bad, it’s horrid. Lack of RF control results in overload ICOM probably should not have included icmo antenna at all with the system; it really needs an external if not outdoor antenna. I get the impression it was something that Icom had lying around the warehouse that they wanted to get rid of!
Diplexers and such are needed if one does not like continuously changing antennas. It goes to show that ixom can change a rating and functionality of a radio.

There is a ic-pce1000 of lockup that occasionally happens in which the computer serial port apparently stops talking to the radio, and it sits there mute. 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 iicom heat ic-pcr10000 from the box. The box itself looks to have been designed with some sort of military application in mind.
I have owned the Ic-pcd1000 for nearly 2. Email Subscription You are not subscribed to this review. I’m using a Diamond Discone and I’ve got all kinds of great listening. I have the dsp module installed, a Radio Shack Discone antenna about 25′ in the air and I can listen to anything I want short wave, music, news, utilities, ham radio.
This rcvr is not meant to compete with an R; it is unique in its own right and priced accordingly. On LF and the AM broadcast band performance is competent, but nothing to rave about.
The visualization of the radio and its ic-pcr100 on the monitor is lc-pcr1000 pleasure to use. On the other hand, if you connect a REAL antenna to this critter, batten down the hatches! All I can tell you at this point is that despite what Icom’s web site says, installation isn’t difficult.
Grounding does nothing to help QRN. They them seem to be a poor choice for scanning. A whole lot iom than I’d expected it to. Overall tho it doesn’t seem to be too much of a problem.
On the plus side: Despite the shortcomings tho, I rather like the PCR TalkPCR I have to say is the much better version of software that is in almost daily use here at home. Icmo 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.
Put simply the PCR is an excellent all round receiver that offers more features than the rest for less, and given good programming skills I believe that there may be many more features available yet! The DSP card is so simple to install a child of 3 could do it with ease.
Contact the site with comments or questions. I think Icom has done a fine job. Besides that, being computer controlled with essentially unlimited channels, it’s a quite useful tool for serious scanning nuts. The radio can’t be judge on just the radio since you need software to control it.
The broadcast stations seem to come in ok but for utility listening it didn’t perform as well as my Drake R8B HF receiver lc-pcr1000 that isn’t a fair comparsion since they are in a different class. The software has some great advanced scanning features like “TacScan”, “Hyperbanks”, “Smartbanks”, searching, great frequency management and logging features.
I found the rcvr adequate in sensitivity on HF; you are not going to chase DX with this thing but 40M listening was good. It can’t begin to compare to a quality dedicated rcvr, but it does what it was designed to do and does it well.
Ic-pcr100 didnt do anything out of the ordinary to cause eprom erasure or modification The only cure for this one ic-pc1000 to shut things down and start over again.
I use a discone but this defeats the purpose of having “Good” antennas up on the roof and limits the receive capabilities to that of a discone. I rechecked connections and jumpers and all tested OK. More information on Probe1K can be found at http: Overall, having this radio and its flexibility on your computer screen is unique and using an outboard powered speaker will provide many ic-pccr1000 of listening pleasure.

Thank Gawd for the internal attenuator
