I am a marine electronics technician with 28 years experience. I have also been a licensed amateur radio operator for the past 12 years. Based on my professional experience with both brands (Icom and Yaesu), I have to advise you to go with one of the Icom units. The Yaesu is a good radio, but Icom's customer support is far superior. I have had no problems dealing with their service department over the years, something I can't say about Yaesu.

Hope this helps.

I have a icom ic-r5 scanner that will not start


Check the battery contacts. Sometimes there may be corrosion on them from old batteries. You can also check the contacts that connect the logic board to the battery contacts. There are two small Philips screws in the battery compartment. Remove them and the back cover comes off. You can check the contacts on the inside of the back cover and see where they make contact with the logic board. Make sure all contacts are free of corrosion. If it still will not power up. try a CPU reset. While holding down [FUNC] and [V/M], turn the power ON to reset the CPU.

I have been using the IC-R5 for a few years now with no problems except when using it during the summer. If the weather is hot, after being switched on for a period of time the scanner just starts to bleap...


The occilator that "locks" the VFO (like a clock signal) is gong out of range. The higher temps are affecting the temprature controlled occilator. I would send the unit to ICOM for repair.

Ic-r5 scanner will not connect to my xp computer


If you have re-loaded the software and then connected the scanner the pc should say "found new hardware" if this is not the case then the port may be inactive, try loading the software using windows add new progs in control panel and see if this solves the problem. You can check the ports by going into control panel / system / device manager / ports. By the way, are you using the ICOM OPC 478 lead with the inbuilt electronic converter in it!

Programming issues with Icom F21


What you have is a programming issue. The radios need to be "cloned" so they will all work together. You can buy the software on line for about $65.00 then you can change frequencies when ever you want.
