More information on Probe1K can be found at http: I find that this one’s a specialist rig, showing it’s finest qualities in some jobs, and giving you the Fickle Finger in others! I’m using a Diamond Discone and I’ve got all kinds of great listening.
Have had mine for ic-pce1000 few months.
Icom Ic-pcr Wideband Communications Receiver for Computer 10khz to MHz | eBay
New to Ham Radio? The broadcast stations seem to come in ok but for utility listening it didn’t perform as well as my Drake R8B HF receiver but that isn’t a fair comparsion since they are in a different class. The HF Reception is on uc-pcr1000 poor side. Running the stock jcom under Windows 95 I’ve had a few problems with it.
On LF and the AM broadcast band performance is competent, but nothing to rave about. This rcvr is not meant to compete with an R; it is unique in its own right and priced accordingly.
Loads of features even in the cheap software. TalkPCR I have to say is the much better version of software that is in almost daily use here at home.
I’m not sure why the other reviewers I’ve read are so displeased. One place where I found the PCR to be a standout performer is in chasing weather satellites. Besides that, being computer id-pcr1000 with essentially unlimited channels, it’s a quite useful tool for serious scanning nuts.
I have had this receiver for two nights. They seemed to be aimed at HF listening. But when it’s bad, it’s horrid. Overall tho it doesn’t seem to be too much of a problem. I think this may be borne out by Icom’s stupidity to release the command set to would be programmers. The only cure for this one is to shut things down and start over again. On the plus side: If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager.
It can’t begin to compare to a quality dedicated rcvr, but it does what it was designed to do and does it well. Audio is good but you must run the system into a seperate powered speaker system.
I think Icom has done a fine job. I’m glad I went with my gut.
Thank Gawd for the internal attenuator I didnt do anything out of the ordinary to cause eprom erasure or modification The oscillator is quite accurate and you can set your signal generator quickly to the desired frequency by zero beating in ic-pcr10000 LSB position. I have a Kenwood S sitting a few feet away and put an antenna switch box where I could connect various antenna back and forth between the and the Pcr However a newer version of the software was released recently to allow people with more modern MS operating systems a chance to play.
PC based receivers are a new area for amateur and SWL use, and I imagine the problems with this first generation gear will eventually be resolved. I rechecked connections and jumpers and all tested OK. I have had it 4 plus years.

I heartily echo the comments of a previous reviewer about the antenna Icom includes in the package Diplexers and such are needed if one does not like continuously changing antennas.
My Radio Shack DX has better sensitivity. Lack of RF control results in overload ICOM probably should not have included an antenna at all with the system; it really needs an external if not outdoor antenna. I tried them all.
The bandscope function in the software is very useful here too. The receiver itself does suffer from the temperature problem described in other reviews, however you could remove this problem by drilling a few holes in the case idom fitting a micro fan to disipate the heat out from the box.
IMHO, if you have to take the radio to an Icom shop to have it put in, you might as well turn in your ham license!!! The computer itself is still completely operational, and it can be easily steered into a controlled shutdown. Will not receive SSB if the band scope is being used. All I can tell you at this point is that despite what Icom’s web site says, installation isn’t difficult.
Each different program has a few neat little options which will keep you interested for a day or two The software has some great advanced scanning features like “TacScan”, “Hyperbanks”, “Smartbanks”, searching, great frequency management and logging features.
They them seem to be a poor choice for scanning. Make ic–pcr1000 mistake about it I have to agree with a number of the reviews already written about the Icm, the original v1. The functionality of the DSP card is excellent reducing noise and pulling those really hard to hear signals out of the noise. I have the dsp module installed, a Radio Shack Discone antenna about 25′ in the air and I can listen to anything I want short wave, music, news, utilities, ham radio.
The box itself looks to have been designed with some sort of military application in mind.
