Icom R1500

The Icom IC-R1500-05 wideband computer receiver connects externally to your PC via a USB cable. The radio can also be controlled via the supplied control head (with not all functions supported). That is right; you can operate the R1500 strictly with the supplied control head. The USB port provides compatibility with many computer models, even laptops. Incredible coverage is yours with reception from 10 kHz to 3300 MHz (less cellular and minor gaps). See specifications for exact coverage. Modes of reception include AM, FM-Wide, FM-Narrow, SSB and CW. (CW and SSB up to .5-1300 MHz only). Many tuning steps are available:  10Hz, 20Hz, 50Hz, 100Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2.5kHz, 5kHz, 6.25kHz, 8.33kHz, 9kHz, 10kHz, 12.5kHz, 15kHz, 20kHz, 25kHz, 30kHz, 50kHz, 100kHz, 125kHz, 150kHz, 200kHz, 500kHz, 1MHz. CTCSS and DTCSS decoding is supported.

The IC-R1500 comes with a remote head, AD-113SA AC adapter, whip antenna, USB cable and Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista™ PCR1500 software CD. Please also note the Icom Japan now offers version 2.2 update at their website:
This updated control software and USB driver support Microsoft Windows® 7 (32/64 bit). It addresses some lock-up issues and adds manual selection of COM port and USB audio port.

The IC-R1500-10 model is the same as above, but without the frequency gaps and could be purchased via the Federal government or for export only.
