The GPS alarm alerts you by beeping when a preprogrammed point is within m or 1km range from your location or anyone of preprogrammed points is within a preset square range. Fast forward a few months.

Each memory channel stores tone frequency, skip information and so on. This model requires Not the case here. For me the most damming weakness was intermod performance and susceptibility to paging systems interference.

One of the small things that I love the most is that you can display both freq and alpha tag at same time. Immediately back to thesame as before. The diversity function compares the receiving signal strength from two different antennas, ANT1 and ANT2, and icm selects the strongest signal.

Yes, easy to figure out but I almost reassembled the radio before I noticed the extra screws. I contacted the repair center in Michigan, they suggested a reset. FM transmission is not affected by this mod.

Great mode and worth the effort. Will do a follow up review in the future but as of now this is by far my favorite rig. The ICH sends your location information either when the mic PTT switch is pushed, or at a preset interval 5 seconds – 30 minutes.


Obviously none of the above are killer issues and the radio itself is exceptional — so 4 out of 5. The controller is separated from the main unit for flexible installation. If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email 2820g Reviews Manager.

This time it wiped the radio completely. This is a ocom rig and it takes a while to get your head around the menu systems. The capsule mic element hole must be enlarged to help enhance the passage of low voice frequencies.

I assume I got into the machine ok, according to the S meter it replied 28200h I received it in normal FM mode, not DV mode as the radio was set to. Several hundred memories and several hours of work lost.

It works as a radio should i have it meanly for dstar. Straight out of the box it became self-evident that the mic 282h0 typical Icom quality, Chinese junk. I do use it in crossband mode it easy to do and works well.

D-Star is unnecessarily complex requiring you to travel through various wormholes to get to your destination; it could and should be simpler. Mag mount control head is awesome. One final comment, having been on D-STAR and I suppose any digital format I would not like to return to FM analogue – for mobile use it is the best, audio is great regardless of the signal strength, no picket fencing, it just works.


A soft reset should not erase the memories according to the manual. The TX audio is tinny and pinched, icmo of 220h frequencies and must be modified to address the problems. Everything seemed ok until I realized I was only receiving every other transmission of his. I tried to access a local D-Star repeater that was about a mile away.

I would recommend this rig if you live in the sticks but not in the city as I find intermod renders it unusable at times. I get almost 60 watts on some portions of both bands.

I use third-party programming software which I found more capable than Icom’s. Band scope function The band scope function lets you watch conditions near the receiving frequency and visually assists in finding other stations.

The controller has magnets on the rear panel, allowing you to attach the controller to the main unit or other metal objects. In all fairness I have 28820h had the radio a few days so hopefully I will still feel the same a 280h months down the road.
