Icom IC-R8500 USED Twelve Months Warranty
Good condition complete with the power supply and manual on CD
Icom IC-R8500-32K government receiver produces performance, coverage and sophistication rarely seen in other models. Covering 100 kHz to 1999.99 MHz, this receiver does cover it all; and more importantly; it does it well throughout this extraordinary range. Most wideband receivers tend to perform only modestly below 30 MHz. The R8500 (and R9500) are clear exceptions to this rule, combining the performance of the popular HF IC-R75 and venerable VHF/UHF IC-R7100. Reception modes include: AM, LSB, USB, CW, FM-N and FM-W. This receiver is equipped with IF Shift and Auto Peak Filter functions … a first for receivers in this class. The IF shift effectively rejects nearby signals in the SSB modes. The APF can select between two bandwidths and serves as a tone control in the FM mode and can also selectively boost signals in the CW mode.
Triple conversion and advanced RF circuits achieve an improved dynamic range of 107 dB and an intercept point of 27.5 dBm. Separate band pass filters minimize cross modulation and provide high sensitivity in the 0.1 to 30 MHz range. The R8500 employs a PLL circuit which provides tuning and readout resolution to an amazing 10 Hz. A host of tuning steps are featured: 10, 50, 100 Hz, 1, 2.5, 5, 9, 10, 12.5, 20, 25, 100 kHz and 1 MHz. In addition you can program your own tuning step (0.5-199.5 kHz). Direct keypad frequency entry is available. And what a memory system! 1000 channels are available organized in 20 banks of 40 channels, plus 100 skip channels and 100 Auto Write Memories. Other refinements include: Noise Blanker, S and Center Tune Meter, RF Attenuator, LCD Dimmer, Clock-Timer, Record Jack and Recorder Activation Jack, Selectable AGC [Fast/Slow] and Main Dial Tension adjustment. Attenuation may be set for 0, 10, 20 or 30 dB.
