The bandscope function in the software is very useful here too. Something that provides a REAL signal to this rig, like an 80 metre ic-;cr1000, is going to send the front end into absolute conniption fits on HF It works fine as a test instrument for tuning up receivers. Despite the shortcomings tho, I rather like the PCR I have ic-pcr10000 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.

IC-PCR – The RadioReference Wiki

The only cure for this one is to shut things down and start over again. My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. More information on TalkPCR is at http: I get the impression it was something that Icom had lying around the warehouse that they wanted to get rid of! I rechecked connections and jumpers and all tested Icp-cr1000.

The HF Reception is on the ic-pcr100 side. The visualization of the radio and its features on the monitor is a pleasure to use. Grounding does nothing to help QRN. With only a few things to bitch about.


Audio is good but you must run the system into a seperate powered speaker system. Will not receive SSB if the band scope is being used. The isnt exactly the greatest thing in the world for ALL band listening but it is better than fair. The broadcast stations seem to come in ok but for utility listening it didn’t perform as well as my Drake R8B HF receiver but ic-prc1000 isn’t a fair comparsion iclm they are in a different class.

ICOM IC-PCR Wideband Computer Receiver

I find that this one’s a specialist rig, showing it’s finest qualities in some jobs, and giving you the Fickle Finger in ic-pce1000 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.

There is a form of lockup that occasionally happens in which the computer serial port apparently stops talking to the radio, and it sits there mute.

On the other hand, icim you connect a REAL antenna to this critter, batten down the hatches! Overall, having this radio and its flexibility on your computer screen is unique and using an outboard powered speaker will provide many hours of listening pleasure. Loads of features even in icomm cheap software.

I think this may be borne out by Icom’s stupidity to release the command set to would be programmers. If you buy one dont even think of running it until you back up your eprom. I have had this receiver for two nights.


I’m not sure why the other reviewers I’ve read are so displeased.

PC based receivers are a new area for amateur and SWL use, and I imagine the problems with this first generation gear will eventually be resolved. Lack of RF control results in overload ICOM probably should not have included an antenna at all with the system; it really needs an external if not outdoor antenna. Diplexers and such are needed ic-pct1000 one ic-pcr1000 not like continuously changing antennas. Thank Gawd for the internal attenuator The radio can’t be judge on just the radio since you need software to control it.

Last fall I picked up a PCR blackbox receiver.

This rcvr is not meant to compete with an R; it is unique in its own right and priced accordingly. If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager.

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. I heartily echo the comments of a previous reviewer about the antenna Icom includes in the package
