Icom R9000L

The Icom IC-R9000L is an all-mode, wideband receiver that continuously covers a frequency range of 100 kHz to 1999.8 MHz. It is a follow-up version of the famous R9000, but with an TFT LCD display instead of a CRT display. The most visible of the radio's many advanced features is the built-in multifunction 5 inch TFT LCD display (320x234 pixel). Receive frequencies, modes and additional useful data are displayed for your operating convenience. The large LCD functions as a spectrum scope to show you, at a glance, the relative signal strengths of nearby receive frequencies. The span of the spectrum scope can be selected for ▒25, ▒50 or ▒100 kHz according to your needs. The screen can also display the contents of 10 memories at once, and can be scrolled to display other memories. Click here to view sample screens. The LCD can also be used as a display device to monitor RTTY or packet via an ASCII RS-232 input port (external data converter required). The R9000L boasts a total of 1000 memories (ten banks of 100) store frequencies, mode, filter width and tuning step increments. You can use different memory banks according to station type, frequency ranges or whatever your preference. By using the memory list screen, many more convenient functions are provided: up to eight character notes for your reference; and the advanced super convenient memory editor function easily moves, copies and deletes the memory contents. Tuning steps: 10 Hz, 100 Hz, 1 kHz, 5 kHz, 9 kHz, 10 kHz, 12.5 kHz, 20 kHz, 25 kHz and 100 kHz. The R-9000L has seven different scan modes with adjust scan speeds up to 13 channels/sec. Program Scan scans between pre-programmed scan edges. Memory Scan scans memory channels. Selected Number Memory Scan scans memory channels with the same programmed mode. Priority Scan monitors specified memory channels. DF Scan scans around the receiving frequency. Auto Memory Write Scan programs receive frequencies into memory channels (900-999) during programmed scan. The R9000L also provides versatile scan resume functions when a signal is received: the scan cancels, pauses until a signal disappears, pauses for an adjustable time, or pauses for the mixed conditions of signal activity and time. The Voice Scan Control systems allows you to skip inconvenient signals such as signals with no modulation, heterodynes or noise.

Superior interference rejection is achieved with both IF shift and notch filters. Control features include dual clocks with two kinds of sleep timers and five independent daily timers. Noise reduction is accomplished with a wide-narrow noise blanker. The squelch can operate by meter or noise level. A keypad is provided for rapid frequency entry. Rack mounting handles are included. Rear panel jacks include:  DC Out, Ext. Spkr., Record Remote, Speech Out, Line Out, IF (10.7 MHz) Out, Video In/Out, Data In, Acc., plus four antenna jacks.
