Blocked super wideband 10 kHz to 3 GHz communication receiver
An impressive upgrade to any serious SIGINT team, interference research team, or the avid shortwave or receiver enthusiasts. Covering 10 kHz to 3 GHz, this communication receiver enables you to hear and see a wide variety of signals on a 4.3-inch color display.
10kHz-3.0 GHz super wideband
P25, NXDN, dPMR, and D-STAR mode
SD card slot for received log, decode log and voice recording
Screen capture function saves a screen shot in PNG or BMP format
I/Q signal output for use with future firmware upgrade and third-party SDR software and/or external decoding
Remote control function through IP network or USB cable
Scans up to 100 channels per second in memory scan mode
Three antenna connectors: SO-239, phono (RCA), type-N
The IC-R8600 decodes various digital protocol signals including P25 (Phase 1), NXDN, dPMR, D-STAR, Japanese DCR (Digital Convenience Radio) as well as receives conventional analog signals such as USB, LSB, FSK, CW, AM, S-AM (Synchronous-AM), FM and WFM modes, covering 10 kHz to 3 GHz wideband in 1 Hz steps.
Utilizing FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) and DSP units for demodulation, decoding and most of signal processing. Direct HF signals and intermediate frequency signals, which are converted from VHF/UHF signals, are digitized in a 14-bit A/D converter and transferred to the FPGA and DSP for optimal processing. The high-rate 122.88 MHz sampling frequency used for the A/D converter results in superior aliasing and image reception reduction.
The IC-R8600 has ample memory channels, up to 2000 regular memory channels assignable to 100 groups. In addition to the regular memory channels, up to 100 scan skip channels and 50 pairs of program scan edges can be set.
