I have had this receiver for two nights. I’m thinking of taking it to the next hamfest and seem how many different simplex frequencies it will log. Have had mine for a few months. TalkPCR I have to say is the much better version of software that is in almost daily use here at home.
Icom Ic-pcr1000 Wideband Communications Receiver for Computer 10khz to 1300 MHz
Contact the site with comments or questions. On LF and the AM broadcast band performance is competent, but nothing to rave about. 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. The ic-pcd1000 cure for this one is to shut things down and start over again.

The isnt exactly the greatest thing in the world for ALL band listening but it is better than fair. I did have some computer noise problems ic-pc1r000 first but a lot of them went way after I put a choke on the external speaker leadn-in and moved a different antenna that was farther away from the computer. The radio can’t be judge on just the radio since you need software to control it. 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!
I can only excuse this faux pas because the radio covers such a wide frequency range that compromises had to be made. The software has some great advanced scanning features like “TacScan”, “Hyperbanks”, “Smartbanks”, searching, great frequency management and logging features.
The oscillator is quite accurate and you can set your signal generator quickly to the desired frequency by zero beating in the LSB position. They them seem to be a poor choice for scanning. More information on Probe1K can be found at http: The visualization of the radio and its features on the monitor is a pleasure to use. Each different program has a few neat little options which will keep you interested for a day or two They seemed to be aimed at HF listening.
Besides that, being computer controlled with essentially unlimited channels, it’s a quite useful tool for serious scanning nuts. The bandscope function in the software is very useful here too. Last fall I picked up a PCR blackbox receiver.
Loads of features even in the cheap software. If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager.

Audio is good but you must run the system into a seperate powered speaker system. Grounding does nothing to help QRN. On the plus side: I found the rcvr adequate in sensitivity on HF; you are not going to chase DX with this thing but 40M listening was good.
The computer itself is still completely operational, and it can be easily steered into a controlled shutdown. Questo, unito alla piacevolezza di fare un lento scan ic-pcr0100 gamma ruotando comodamente la rotellina del mouse, sono le cose che rendono questa radio unica.
If you buy one dont even think of running it until you back up your eprom. IMHO, if you iom to take the radio to an Icom shop ic-pcr10000 have it put in, you might as well turn in your ham license!!! I think this may be borne out by Icom’s stupidity to release the command set to would be programmers. It works fine as a test instrument for tuning up receivers. But when it’s bad, it’s horrid.
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! PC based iicom are a new area for amateur and SWL use, and I imagine the problems with this first generation gear will eventually be resolved. This rcvr is not meant to compete with an R; it is unique in its own right and priced accordingly.
Make no mistake about it 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.
I’m using icomm Diamond Discone and I’ve got all kinds of great listening. I have the dsp module installed, a Radio Shack Discone antenna idom 25′ in the air and I can listen to anything I want short wave, music, news, utilities, ham radio.
One place where I found the PCR to be a standout performer is in chasing weather satellites. My Radio Shack DX has better sensitivity. It can’t begin to compare to a quality dedicated rcvr, but it does what it was designed to do and does it well.
The DSP card is so simple to install a child of 3 could do it with ease. Something I could take with me ico, need to be.
