The Ham Radio Shop Winter Warmer Price. Icom IC-E2820 D-STAR/GPS

Icom IC-E2820 D-STAR Click to enlarge
The IC-E2820 dual-band mobile transceiver includes popular features such as VHF/VHF, UHF/UHF simultaneous receive capability, wideband receive, independent tuning knobs and a separate controller.
In addition to this Icom has introduced new features including diversity receive capability, a full dot-matrix display and 50W output power in both VHF and UHF bands, all in one stylish mobile set.
When the optional UT-123 Digital/GPS unit is installed the IC-E2820 advanced mobile is capable of both D-STAR Digital Voice and GPS operation. The IC-E2820's GPS features include; position information exchange, plotting your position onto mapping software on a PC. Advanced features; D-STAR Digital Voice facilities and GPS functionality take the IC-E2820 into a new realm of Amateur radio communications.

VHF/VHF, UHF/UHF simultaneous receive capability
The IC-E2820 is a true dual band transceiver. VHF/VHF, UHF/UHF as well as VHF/UHF simultaneous receive is possible. A simple push of a button allows you to change between the main (transmit) band and sub-band.

Diversity receive capability
The IC-2820 features twin antenna sockets on the rear of the case. One antenna socket is for the more usual transmit/receive operation, the second antenna socket allows for sophisticated Diversity Reception.

Diversity reception* mode is useful for mobile operation where the received signal strength changes continuously. It compares the signal strength and chooses the antenna with the better signal to maintain good sound and receive quality.
* Two antennas are required. 127, 136, 146, 375, 440, 500MHz band in FM/FM-N/DV mode only. Diversity reception is not available while using the dualwatch.

Large full dot-matrix display
The IC-E2820 has a large full dot-matrix display (93x28 mm). The dot-matrix display provides graphical user-friendly operation. For example, when you push the “Function” button, you can call up the function menu of the assigned functions above each button. The background colour of the display is selectable from green, orange to amber colour in 21 steps.

Independent tuning knob for each band
The IC-E2820 provides easy to use, user-friendly operation. The independent tuning knob provides simple and quick tuning. Volume, squelch and other function switches are symmetrically laid out for each band. In addition, there are two speaker jacks for each band on the main unit.

50W output power in both VHF and UHF bands
A newly designed MOS-FET power amplifier provides a powerful 50W both in the 144MHz and the 430 MHz bands, making this compact rig capable of long distance communication! Output power is selectable in 3 steps.

Optional UT-123 (includes GPS antenna)
The optional UT-123 provides Digital Voice mode operation plus GPS receiver capability. When installed, the IC-E2820 is compatible with the JARL D-STAR format and your position data can be sent simultaneously with digital voice transmission.
Other features of the UT-123 include:
Position information exchange
When connecting the GPS antenna (supplied with the UT-123) to the GPS jack, your own position information can be sent to other stations. The IC-E2820 sends the position data either by holding the PTT switch, or at a preset interval (5 seconds–30 minutes), depending on the setting.

Plotting position information on a mapping software
When connected to a PC* via the optional OPC-1529R (RS-232C cable), position information can be plotted on mapping software* on a PC.
* Serial port and position mapping software (NMEA 0183 format) are required.

GPS alarm
The GPS alarm sounds when your own position is close to the specified point or area.

One touch reply function
The IC-E2820 has a one-touch reply function. It uses the received callsign (including repeater callsign) and allows you to call back to the calling station without hassle. In addition, up to 20 received callsigns are stored as the received call record.

Callsign function
Stores My (own), Your (other stations) and repeater 1/2 callsigns in the memory. “Your” and “repeater 1/2” callsign memory stores 60 callsigns with 8-character channel comment for each. Own callsign and up to a 20-character message can be sent at the beginning of each call. The received callsign and message are decoded on the display. Built-in digital voice memory recorder and auto reply
The UT-123 has a built-in voice memory recorder*. It records an incoming call for up to 30 seconds (approx.), or can be partitioned into 3 tracks (10 seconds each). The 10-second transmit memory allows you to record your callsign, CQ message, etc, and automatically answers when you receive a message.
* Available in DV mode only.

950bps data communication in DV mode
When connected to a PC* via the optional OPC-1529R RS-232C cable, 950bps data communication is available.
* Serial port and serial communication software are required.

522 memory channels
The IC-E2820 has a total of 522 memory channels, 500 regular channels, 2 call channels and 20 scan edges. Each memory channel stores tone frequency, skip information etc. Icom's Dynamic Memory Scan (DMS) system divides these memories into 26 groups, A to Z which provides easy channel selection. Bank scanning is also possible.

Built-in wide band receiver
In addition to the VHF/VHF, UHF/UHF dual band capabilities, the IC-E2820 has a wideband receiver which covers 118–549.995 and 810–999.990MHz*. This means you can listen to various communications in your vehicle or shack. The IC-E2820 has high speed scan capability of 45-channel/sec. (in program scanning mode). This allows you to scan quickly when searching a wide frequency range.

Separate controller from main unit
For easy installation, the controller is separate from the main unit. The controller has magnets on the rear panel, so you can attach it to the main unit or other metal objects.

HM-133, remote control microphone
The IC-E2820 come as standard with a HM-133 remote control microphone. The 10-key pad allows you to enter the frequency directly. The F1/F2 buttons memorise the transceiver’s full settings. All operating frequencies, tone settings as well as the display colour, fan speed, and set mode settings are memorised.

104x2 DTCS/50 CTCSS tone squelch operation is standard
CTCSS and DTCS tone signalling systems provide quiet stand-by and useful functions such as pocket beep and tone scan. The pocket beep alerts the operators with a beep sound, when the transceiver receives a signal containing a pre-set tone. Tone scan detects the tone frequency used for opening a repeater or for tone squelch operation.

IC-E2820 Additional Features


  • ±2.5ppm high frequency stability with TCXO unit
  • 9600bps data terminal, a mini DIN (6-pin) connector on the front panel of the main unit
  • Adjustable microphone sensitivity
  • ALC (Automatic microphone Level control)
  • Long or short squelch delay
  • Automatic attenuator
  • FM narrow capability
  • Sub-band auto mute function
  • 16 DTMF memory channels (24 digits)
  • DTMF pager/code squelch function
  • Twin Antenna Sockets
  • Auto power off

Kenwood TS-2000e USED 12 months warranty
Kenwood TS-2000e, USED. New in November 2013. Supplied with twelve months warranty. This one transceiver covers the HF/50MHz/144MHz/440MHz/1200MHz (1200MHz is optional with UT-20) bands (SSB, CW, FSK, FM and AM modes), with output of up to 100 watts (440 MHz: 50 watts; 1200 MHz 10 watts). Since it is equipped with independent 144/440MHz sub band reception (AM/FM modes only), simultaneous reception on two bands is possible: HF by V/U, V by V, U by U and V by U. A typical application might be to gather local information on 144/440 MHz at the same time as using HF for long range operations. A 'Black Box' model (without the control panel) is also available: this can be used in a vehicle with a mobile head, or controlled by a PC (software provided). IF DSP...
