Question about Radio Communications

1 Answer

Icom IC-R33 I just bought this scanner and am slowly learning how to use it. I know that the TV band will be obsolete next year but that is not my mail concern. Does it have the capicity to monitor 900mhz wirless cameras. I have a few and just haven't tried it yet as I am still learning what all I CAN do. Will it pick up the video from the 900-1.4Ghz? I do surveilence and have a mobile VHSC that I record I wanted a scanner that I could watch what I was seeing w/out being tied to the van to veiw it. So am I out of luck? Please give me good news. BTW anway to digitize this scanner?

Most scanners do not have the capability to scan 900 MHz channels, but the Regency Touch K500 can. And no you can't digitize a scanner that hasn't been built to be digital trunking. As for your other question, I don't understand about the VHSC thing.

How do i program dstar in icom 80ad?


If you have your manual, follow the instructions starting on page 34. If you do not have the manual, you can download one Google searching "icom ic-80ad d-star manual". Fixya restricts me from directly sending you the URL, as it contains the word '*mateur' where "The word *mateur is considered as profanity on Fixya." * = letter 'a'. Go figure.

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.

Specification of the radio


The ICOM IC-R3 is a handheld wideband receiver (NOT a 2-way radio) that covers 0.495-815.995 and 902-2450.095 MHz in AM, FM wide, FM narrow, and TV modes. It offers 450 channels in 8 banks. This scanner/receiver does not receive SSB, digital, or trunked transmissions, and the TV band is useless in the USA since all transmissions are now digital.

If you're an old hand, this might be the perfect scanner/receiver for you. Otherwise, you should probably avoid it, as it's complicated/difficult to operate, lacking in many features that are standard in most scanners, and generally high-priced. The R3 and its big brother, the R5, were dismal failures in the USA scanner market.

For more detailed info/specs, you can download/print the R3 product brochure and instruction manual here:

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!!!

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.
