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 ic-pfr1000. I found the rcvr adequate in sensitivity on HF; you are not going to chase DX with this thing but 40M listening ic-pcd1000 good.
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! 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.
Although 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. Grounding does nothing to help QRN. But when it’s bad, it’s horrid.
Overall tho it doesn’t seem to be too much of a problem. They seemed to be aimed at HF listening. 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.
I’m thinking of taking it to the next hamfest and seem how ivom different simplex frequencies it will log. 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. The bandscope function in the software is very useful here too.
ICOM IC-PCR Product Reviews
If you buy one dont even think of running it until you back up your eprom. I did have some computer noise problems at 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 box itself looks to have been designed with some sort of military application in mind. icmo
I rechecked connections and jumpers and all tested OK. I have a Kenwood S sitting a few feet away and put an antenna switch box where I could connect various antenna back and forth between the and the Pcr Thank you for reading. 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. Running the stock software under Windows 95 Ic-pcr1000 had a few problems with it. I think this may be borne out by Icom’s stupidity to release the command set to ci-pcr1000 be programmers.

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! On LF and the AM broadcast band performance is competent, but nothing to rave about.
I recently added the DSP module to the rig, but ic-cpr1000 yet had much opportunity to play with it. Click, click I seperate i-cpcr1000 what sounds interesting. On the plus side: Contact the site with comments or questions.
I’m using a Diamond Discone and I’ve got all kinds of great listening. Will not receive SSB if the band scope is being used. The computer itself is still completely operational, and it can be easily steered into a controlled shutdown.
Last fall I picked up a PCR blackbox receiver. I’m not sure why the other reviewers I’ve read are so displeased. The only cure for this one is to shut things down and start over again.
