On the plus side: It can scan faster and lock onto tones faster then any other PCR software out there. A whole lot hotter than I’d expected it to. The computer iclm is still completely operational, and it can be easily steered into a controlled shutdown.
On LF and the AM broadcast band performance is competent, but nothing to rave about. More information on Probe1K can be found at http: 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.
The oscillator is quite accurate and you can set your signal generator quickly to the desired frequency by zero beating in the LSB position. Contact the site with comments or questions. I didnt do anything out of the ordinary to cause eprom erasure or modification I rechecked connections and jumpers and all tested OK.
One place where I found the PCR to be a standout performer is in chasing weather satellites.

I have had this receiver for two nights. My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. I recently added the DSP module to the rig, but haven’t yet had much opportunity to play with it. The HF Reception is on the poor side. Audio is good but you must run the system into a seperate powered speaker system. Overall, having this radio and its flexibility on your computer screen is unique and using an outboard iccom speaker will provide many hours of listening pleasure.
Besides that, being icoom controlled with essentially unlimited channels, it’s a quite useful tool for serious scanning nuts. The functionality icpcr1000 the DSP card is excellent reducing noise and pulling those really hard to hear signals out of the noise.
I’m using a Diamond Discone and I’ve got all kinds of great listening.
PC based receivers are a new area for amateur and SWL use, and I imagine the problems with this first generation gear will eventually icc-pcr1000 resolved. I can only excuse this faux pas because the radio covers such a wide frequency range that compromises had to be made.
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. All I can tell you at this point is that despite what Icom’s web site says, installation isn’t difficult.
Make no mistake about it My biggest disappointment at first was the choice of software. The only cure for this one is to shut things down and start over again. Click, click I seperate out what sounds interesting.
ICOM IC-PCR Wideband Computer Receiver
My Radio Shack DX has better sensitivity. I have to agree with a number of the reviews already written about the PCR, the original v1. The bandscope function in the software is very useful here too. 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.

But when it’s bad, it’s horrid. Will not receive SSB if the band scope is being used. 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 ic-cpr1000.
I have owned the PCR for nearly 2.
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!!! Each radio has it’s own eprom addresses so dont try using a backup from another PCR This rcvr is not meant to compete with an R; it is unique in its own right and priced accordingly.
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 that isn’t a fair comparsion since they are in a different class.
TalkPCR I have to say is the much better version of software that is in almost daily use here at home. I find that this one’s a specialist rig, showing it’s finest qualities in some jobs, and giving you the Fickle Finger in others! More information on TalkPCR is at http: However a newer version of the software was released recently to allow people with more modern MS operating systems a chance to play.
