More information on Ic-pxr1000 can be found at http: Email Subscription You are not subscribed to this review. Will not receive SSB if the band scope is being used. On LF and the AM broadcast band performance is competent, but nothing to rave about.
I’m glad I went with my gut. Last fall I picked up a Ciom blackbox receiver. The isnt exactly the greatest thing in the world ic-pcr10000 ALL band listening but it is better than fair. Each radio has it’s own eprom addresses so dont try using a backup from another PCR The radio can’t be judge on just the radio since you need software to control it.
I’m not sure why the other reviewers I’ve read are so displeased. On HF it was hard to judge. If you buy one dont even think of running it until you back up your eprom. The visualization of the radio and its features on the monitor is a pleasure to use.
I tried them all. Having only one antenna connection for such a wideband radio is no less than a sin.
Running the stock software under Windows 95 I’ve had a few problems with it. Overall tho it doesn’t seem to be too ocom of a problem. I didnt do anything out of the ordinary ixom cause eprom erasure or modification I’m using a Diamond Discone and I’ve got all kinds of great listening. Audio is good but you must run the system into a seperate powered speaker system. 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.
Despite the shortcomings tho, I rather like the PCR I rechecked connections and jumpers and all tested OK. It ico scan faster and lock onto tones faster then any other PCR software out there. Loads of features even in the cheap iocm. It can’t begin to compare to a quality dedicated rcvr, but it does what it was designed to do and does it well. Thank you for reading. The broadcast stations seem to come in ok but for icim listening it didn’t perform as well as my Drake R8B HF receiver but that isn’t a fair comparsion since icpcr1000 are in a different class.
I heartily echo the comments of a previous reviewer about the antenna Icom includes in the package I can only excuse this faux pas because the radio covers such a wide frequency range that compromises had to be made.
My biggest disappointment at first was the choice of software. Something I could take with me if need to be. However a newer version of the software was released recently to allow people with more modern MS operating systems a chance to play.

I have owned the PCR for nearly 2. More information on TalkPCR is at http: I have had it 4 plus years. It goes to ic-pce1000 that software can change a rating and functionality of a radio.
Besides that, being computer controlled with essentially unlimited channels, it’s a quite useful tool for serious scanning nuts. 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!!!

Put simply the PCR is an excellent all round receiver that offers more features than the rest icok less, and given good programming skills I believe that there may be many more features available yet!
My Radio Shack DX has better sensitivity. They seemed to be aimed at HF listening. The only cure for this one is to shut things down and start over again.
ic-lcr1000 They them seem to be a poor choice for scanning. The functionality of the DSP card is excellent reducing noise and pulling those really hard to hear signals out of the noise. The computer itself is still completely operational, and it can be easily steered into a controlled shutdown.
I have to agree with a number of the reviews already written about the PCR, the original v1. I’m thinking of taking it iv-pcr1000 the next hamfest and seem how many different simplex frequencies it will log.
