GPS alarm 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. Several hundred memories and several hours of work lost. The diversity function compares the receiving signal strength from two different antennas, ANT1 and ANT2, and automatically selects the strongest signal.
It works as a radio should i 282h0 it meanly for dstar. The ICH sends your location information either when the mic PTT switch is pushed, or at a preset interval 5 seconds – 30 2820hh. I use on Dstar and FM. FM transmission is not affected by this mod. New to Ham Radio?
I use third-party programming software which I found more capable than Icom’s. We tracked this down to the microphone and did a mod to fix this. Good but a better radio is now needed from ICOM as this one is showing its age, but here’s my spin on it: Of course, bank scanning is also possible. This is a complex rig and it takes a while to get your head around the menu systems. Location information exchange The ICH sends your location information either when the mic PTT switch is pushed, or at a preset interval 5 seconds – 30 minutes.
When paired with a Diamond dual-band mobile antenna, selectivity and sensitivity are excellent in my locality. I used a modified Icom HMT mic and it produced excellent audio, but Icom should have sorted this problem long ago as it degrades many models. It is a seriously overpriced rig, and I think the price hike puts the rig beyond the budget range of many hams. Within a single band, the radio compares signal strength from each antenna and chooses the better signal to maintain good sound and receive quality.

I would certainly expect it would have lasted much longer before such serious problems came to 28220h. As noted elsewhere the GPS plugs into the front of the main radio unit so is a real pain when the headunit is attached as well. Mic problems sorted, D-Star provides superb audio, but it requires ideal conditions to deliver the goods. A soft reset should not erase the memories according to the manual.
When available from a calling station, the ICH displays the distance and direction to the station. The addition of a 3u3 – 4u7 capacitor is pretty 282h0 mandatory and the capsule type, experimental perhaps. This radio comes with full function backlit HM remote DTMF hand mic, mounting bracket, power cord and spare fuses.
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. In all fairness 2820j have only had the radio a few days so hopefully I will still feel the same a few months down the road.

It is under the control head and if you plug in the GPS antenna you cannot have the control head attached to the radio. Also, the cost is somewhat high when you consider that to add D-star, you need the UT module – an optional extra.

Transmitted audio is good. Straight out of the box it became self-evident that the mic is typical Icom quality, Chinese junk. It appeared to fix the problem.
On the downside, the controls are small and difficult to use while driving. They do ixom show that once the board is installed there are two screws that hold the board down, the pictorial just shows it plugging into the slot, no screws shown. My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help.

Each memory channel stores tone frequency, skip information and so on. Yes, easy to figure out but I almost reassembled 28200h radio before I noticed the extra screws.
Will do a follow up review in the future but as of now this is by far my favorite rig.
The controller has magnets on the rear panel, allowing you to attach the controller to the main unit or other metal objects. 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.
One upside of the H is that it has more screen real estate, and is easier to use and programme directly from the screen as opposed to the IDH. This makes clean and neat installation easy! The rear panel has two SO antenna jacks to support diversity reception two antennas required.
For me the most damming weakness was intermod performance and susceptibility to paging systems interference. Obviously none of the above are killer issues and the radio itself is exceptional — so 4 out of 5. Great mode and worth the effort. Your location information can be sent simultaneously with the digital voice transmission.
