New to Ham Radio? In addition, up to 20 received callsigns are automatically stored as received call records. This feature is useful when you are 2802h in a moving vehicle or the transmitting station itself is moving. Xband repeat is as simple as pushing 3 buttons in at same time. Obviously none of the above are killer issues and the radio itself is exceptional — so 4 out of 5.
The diversity function compares the receiving 8220h strength from two different antennas, ANT1 and ANT2, and automatically selects the strongest signal. This is a complex rig and it takes a ocom to get your head around the menu systems. The band scope function lets you watch conditions near the receiving frequency and visually assists in finding other stations. Everything seemed ok until I realized I was only receiving every other transmission of his.
Email Subscription You are not 280h to this review. My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. It is a seriously overpriced rig, and I think the price hike puts the rig beyond the budget range of many hams.
I tried with a D-Star HT, the machine was working perfectly.

The ICH receives The TX audio is tinny and pinched, devoid of low frequencies and must be modified to address the problems. Of course, bank scanning is also possible. It appeared to kcom the problem. While I like the larger display of the H, I find that dual band dual receive is 2820 pain, as I was always turn up one band and turning down the other to listen to the audio when mobile. The controller is separated from the main unit for flexible installation.
The H has one of the worst-translated and most difficult to understand and least logically laid out manual it has ever been my pleasure to hate. In addition, tuning knobs and buttons for each band are arranged side-by-side, providing intuitive operation. The capsule mic element hole must be enlarged to help enhance the passage of low voice frequencies. For me the most damming weakness was intermod performance and susceptibility to paging systems interference.
In all fairness I have only had the radio a few days so hopefully I will still feel the same a few months down the road. I would recommend this rig if you live in the sticks but not in the city 2820j I find intermod renders it unusable at times.

I do use it in crossband mode it easy to do and works well. Yes this radio does have an extensive menu system which does icomm some learning but to me that is all part of the fun.

The GPS alarm alerts you by beeping when a preprogrammed point is within m or 1km range from your location or anyone of preprogrammed points is within a preset square range.
Mag mount control head is awesome.

Push the “Function” button to call up the assigned functions menu on the display. It works as a radio should i have it meanly for dstar. I get almost 60 watts on some portions of both bands. Used as a base station only I have had few problems. They do not show that once the board is installed there are two screws that hold the board down, the pictorial just shows it plugging into the slot, no screws shown.

Not the case here. My main three complaints with the radio the reason I can’t give it 5 stars: I use on Dstar and FM. Straight out of the box it became self-evident that the mic is typical Icom quality, Chinese junk. When available icmo a calling station, the ICH displays the distance and direction to the station. One upside of the H is that it has more screen real estate, and is easier to use and programme directly from the screen as opposed to the IDH.
The addition of a iicom – 4u7 capacitor is pretty much mandatory and ciom capsule type, experimental perhaps. D-Star is unnecessarily complex requiring you to travel through various wormholes to get to your destination; it could and should be simpler. The ICH has a total of memory channels, regular channels, 2 call channels and 20 scan edge channels.
Tried another repeater and raised iicom ham. Next time I’ll get the ID, which includes the D-star capability at the expense of dual-watch, for considerably less money.
Fast forward a few months.
