Second Hand Icom IC-R1500 HF VHF UHF Communications Receiver 1

Second hand icom ic-r1500 hf vhf uhf communications receiver


Icom is pleased to annouce the debut of the IC-R1500 communication receiver. Covering 0.01 to 3299.999MHz in AM, FM & WFM modes (0.495-1300MHz in SSB and CW modes), the ICR1500 is not only a powerful PC-controlled receiver, but when a remote control head is added it becomes a mobile or base receiver featuring a high-speed scanning capability of up to 60 channels per second.
Wideband receiver

The IC-R1500 covers 0.01-3299.999MHz* in AM, FM & WFM modes (0.495-1300MHz only in SSB and CW modes). 1Hz fine tuning resolution is available in all bands. When connected to a PC, all functions can be controlled by the click of a mouse or from keyboard input.
* Frequency range depends on version.
Remote controller head
The IC-R1500 is supplied with a remote control head for mobile or base station use. Green, amber and yellow backlit colour are selectable.
High speed scanning of up to 60 channels per second
The IC-PCR1500 has a maximum high speed scanning capability of 60 channels per second*. This scanning power provides the utmost efficiency when searching a wide frequency range. Auto memory write scan searches for a signal, and when a signal is detected, the received frequency is automatically stored into an auto memory write channel bank.
The following other scans are available:-
• Full scan
• Mode select scan
• Programmed scan
• Memory scan
• Priority scan
• Tone scan
• Bank scan
• Skip scan
• Auto memory write scan
• Program skip scan
• Program skip area scan
*Tuning step is 100kHz or less in program scan mode.
• VSC, CTCSS, DTCS tone and S-meter squelch
• The VSC (Voice squelch control) opens the squelch only when a modulated signal is detected and ignores unmodulated, beat noise signals.
• The CTCSS and DTCS tones provide quiet stand-by while waiting for a matched tone signal.
• S-meter squelch releases the AF mute, when only signals stronger than the pre-set S-meter level are received.
• Pocket beep function alerts you with a beep sound when a matched tone signal is received.
• DSP capability
With the optional DSP unit, UT-106, you can add a noise reduction function, which improves the S/N ratio. Also, the automatic notch filter automatically cuts beat interference. These DSP functions pull out desired signals from noise, and provide superior receive quality.
• Other Noise reduction functions
• IF filter selection
• IF shift function (SSB/CW mode only)
• Noise blanker (SSB/CW/AM mode only). Eliminates pulse type noise such as engine ignition noise.
• 20dB RF attenuator (approx., below 1300MHz)
• AFC function (Auto Frequency Control). Automatically
compensates for frequency drift in FM mode and keys the receiver tuned to the centre frequency of the tuned station. (BW: 6KHz or 15KHz).
• AGC function. Fast/slow setting is possible.
• DTMF tone decoder
• Duplex operation
• Recording function. Allows you to store received
audio on the PC in WAV format
• Tuned bandpass filters for VHF/UHF bands
• 1000 memory channels can be stored
• When connected to a PC, all IC-PCR1500 functions are available
