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.

How to program an Icom IC-R5 handheld scanner


to store a fcy press BAND to go to your fcy range ie 118.000 airband
dial your fcy ie 127.900(shanwick ocean area control) press and hold V/M for 1 sec, small numbers now blink, dial the memory slot you wish to store into ie 001 then press V/M again for 1sec and this will store 127.900 into mem slot 001. make a list:-
mem number / fcy / mode(am - fm) / station / bank
to prog a fcy into a "bank", press V/M for 1sec - blinking mem numbers - dial mem number ie 001(127.900) press MODE - "bank" flashes past-
-- -- -- -- 001 shows, turn dial to show A-00 this is the first "bank", pressing BAND scrolls through all the alpha "banks" - choose one.. ie A-00 (for airband..) press V/M this puts mem 001 into "bank" A mem slot 00, there are 100 slots in each letter 00 to 99. do this to any fcy you want to scan as a group.
to scan a bank press V/M - small numbers appear -
press BAND to scroll through any "banks" you have created ie A B C D etc (only banks with fcys in will display), press MODE -"bank"- press MODE again and you will start scanning just that "bank" of mem slots.
MODE starts and stops the scan... each letter holds 100 mem slots.. happy scanning!!!

I have an Icom IC-R5 hand held reciever that needs to be programmed. How do I program this reciever? Please Help, Thank You in advance.


It is a bit long winded but, if you are familiar with how to store frequencies into memory numbers, it is almost the same for all the alpha numeric banks, then the rest of the programming is very similar to this method with the additions of tone, code, duplex up or down for each individual frequency etc. My advice is to write your own notes on a large sheet of paper and develop a chart with all your fcys in list order and where you have put them in banks, add how you got there and only refere to the manual if you get really stuck (the manual tends to be too vague and complicated to follow). if your scanner is empty at the moment, this is your best opportunity to learn the hard but best way to programme this lovely beast! ps the scanner is very good once you have mastered it...

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!

Can you recomend PC software for ICOM IC-R5 scanner


try this....
create an "airshow" bank to scan just the airshow fcys.
press V/M for 1sec -blinking mem numbers- dial a known mem that has an airshow fcy stored in it ie 025 (127.875) press MODE "bank" will flash past..
-- -- -- -- A-00 shows up ( I use this bank for airshows) press V/M, this puts mem 025 (127.875) into "bank" A mem slot 00, each letter holds 100 mem slots , put all your aishow fcys in here and when you scan bank A you will only scan the airshow fcys and not the entire airband!!
to scan a bank...
press V/M - small numbers show- press BAND this will diplay your bank letters, just select A## then press MODE for 1sec -"bank"- press MODE again and you will start scanning just A for airshows...
press MODE to start and stop the scan.. happy scanning! ps Southport was not as good this year as last year although it was good to see the vulcan again!!

If you where going to Buy one radio which one would you Buy?


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.

The only thing you can do about this problem is to buy a Uniden product.However the problem about this is that it does not get all frequencies unlike this model.
