Icom PCR2500

The Icom IC-PCR2500-25 wideband computer receiver connects externally to your PC via a USB cable. This 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. Up to 25 channel activities can be observed on the multi-channel monitor screen at a glance. According to the S-Meter level, each channel status is visually displayed by three background colors. When you click a busy channel, you can easily start listening to the selected channel. Received audio can be stored on the PC with WAV format. Modes of reception include AM, FM-Wide, FM-Narrow, SSB and CW. (CW and SSB up from 0.5 - 1300 MHz only). Many tuning steps are available:  1Hz, 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, 10MHz. Other refinements include:  CTCSS/DCS, pocket beep, IF shift, auto memory write, AFC, AGC, weather alert, 24 digit DTMF tone decoder and up to 2600 memory channels per file.

The PCR2500 has two powerful features, previously only available in high end military receivers. These two features are dual watch and diversity reception. With dual watch, the receiver can receive two signals simultaneously. With diversity reception, two antennas can be connected at the same time and employed to provide very stable reception. (Typically, the two antennas would be separated by distance and/or be of different polarity).

The PCR2500 comes with an AD-113A or AD-113SA AC adapter, whip antenna, USB cable and Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista™ PCR2500 software CD. Installation note:  the UT-108 and UT-118 cannot be installed at the same time. This version of the PCR2500 is discontinued. 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.

Please also see the Icom IC-R2500.

The IC-PCR2500-30 model is the same as above, but without the cellular and other gaps and could be purchased via government or cellular communications provider qualifying purchase order or for export only. This version is also now discontinued.
