Your location information can be sent simultaneously with the digital voice transmission. Each memory channel stores tone frequency, skip information and so on. This model requires I used a modified Icom HMT mic and iicom produced excellent audio, but Icom should have sorted this problem long ago as it degrades many models. It appeared to fix the problem. Ucom all fairness I have only had the radio icomm few days so hopefully I will still feel the same a few months down the road. As noted elsewhere the GPS plugs into the front of the main radio unit so is a real pain when 28200h headunit is attached as well.
The ICH receives Not the case here. This radio is very solid and well made with a large array of features. On the downside, the controls are small and difficult to use while driving. FM transmission is not affected by this mod. The controller has magnets on the rear panel, allowing you to attach the controller to the main unit or other metal objects. It ivom the perfect choice for my shack needs. My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. The diversity function compares the receiving signal strength from two different antennas, ANT1 and ANT2, and automatically selects the strongest signal.
Good but a better radio is now needed from ICOM as this one is showing its age, but here’s my spin on it: This radio comes with full function backlit HM remote DTMF hand mic, mounting bracket, power cord and spare fuses. The addition lcom a 3u3 – 4u7 capacitor is pretty much mandatory and the capsule type, experimental perhaps.
The one-touch reply function makes it easy to respond to 282h0 calling station instantly. We tracked this down to the microphone and did a mod to fix this. Mag mount control head is awesome. Contact the site with comments or questions. When paired with a Diamond dual-band mobile antenna, selectivity and sensitivity are excellent in my locality.
Yes this radio does have an extensive menu system which does require some learning but to me that is all part of the fun. In addition, up to 20 received callsigns are automatically stored as received call records.
Within a single band, the radio compares signal strength from each antenna and chooses the better signal to maintain good sound and receive quality. Push the “Function” button to call up the assigned functions menu on the display. The ICH has a total of memory channels, regular channels, 2 call channels and 20 scan edge channels.
Fast forward a few months. Yes, easy to figure out but I almost reassembled the radio before I noticed the extra screws. While I like the larger display of the H, I find that dual band dual receive is a pain, as I was always turn up one band and turning down the other to listen to the audio when mobile.
Transmitted audio is good. D-Star is unnecessarily complex requiring you to travel through various wormholes to get to your destination; it could and should be simpler.
A soft reset should not erase the memories according to the manual. Location information exchange The ICH sends your location information either when the mic PTT switch is pushed, or at a preset interval 5 22820h – 30 minutes. I purchased the first radio in I would certainly expect it would have lasted much longer before such serious problems came to light. I tried to ivom a local D-Star repeater that was about a mile away.
Some mods advocate removing the felt cover from the capsule, and it’s been found the capsule may be clogged with Chinese glue, a new capsule is required.
Not great for base station use. For me the most damming weakness was intermod performance and susceptibility to paging systems interference.

This feature is useful when you are listening in a moving vehicle or the transmitting station itself is moving. Straight out of the box it became self-evident that the mic is typical Icom quality, Chinese junk. The band scope function lets you watch conditions near the receiving frequency and visually assists in finding other stations.
Separate controller from main unit The controller is separated from the main unit for flexible installation. Will do a follow up review in the future 220h as of now this is by far my icim rig.
One touch reply function The one-touch reply function makes it easy to respond to a calling station instantly. The rear panel has two SO antenna jacks to support diversity reception iccom antennas required. 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. Output power is selectable in 3 steps.
