The IC-R8500 is not simply a scanner, it is a professional quality communications receiver with versatile features that will appeal to both the serious receiver enthusiast or professional user.
Wide Frequency Coverage
The IC-R8500 covers a wide frequency range from 0.1 to 2000MHz, with 10Hz resolution, while maintaining high receive sensitivity. You can be sure that if there are any communications or broadcasts out there, you'll be able to hear them with minimum interference from other signals.
Various tuning steps
Two methods of frequency entry are available; using the tuning dial or direct frequency entry from the keypad. Numerous tuning steps are available for operating a wide variety of stations. In addition, a programmable tuning step is available. The programmable tuning step can be set (independently for each memory channel) to a value between 0.5 ~ 199.5Khz in 0.5kHz steps.
All Mode Capability
The IC-R85000's all mode capability allows you to receive signals in many different modes. SSB (USB, LSB), CW, AM, FM and WFM are included. Several speciality modes such as CW narrow, AM wide, AM narrow and FM narrow are available to receive a variety of signals that require a matched passband width.
Superior receive characteristics
The IC-R8500 has superb high receive sensitivity over its entire range, and built in high quality crystal (TCXO) provides excellent frequency stability of less than +/- 10Hz below 30MHz; less than +/- 3ppm above 30MHz.
