Icom IC 2820H Radio Transceiver
282h one-touch reply function makes it easy to respond to a calling station instantly. Will do a follow up review in the future but as of now this is by far my favorite rig. I tried with a D-Star HT, the machine was working perfectly. The addition of a 3u3 – 4u7 capacitor is pretty much mandatory and the capsule type, experimental perhaps.
Contact the site with comments or questions. Immediately back to thesame as before. Also, the cost is somewhat high when you consider that to add D-star, you need the UT module – an optional extra. It works as a radio should i have it meanly for dstar. There is of course the “falling off the cliff” and R2D2 sounds when on the fringe of repeaters but once you know the limits of the local repeater it is great.
It is a seriously overpriced rig, and I think the price hike puts the rig beyond iicom budget range of many hams. My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help.
Next time I’ll get the ID, which includes the D-star capability at the expense of dual-watch, for considerably less money. While I like the larger display of the H, I find that dual band dual receive is a pain, as I was always turn up one band and turning down the other to listen to the audio when mobile.
It is under the control head and if you plug in the GPS antenna you cannot have the control head attached to the radio. 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.
Tried another repeater and raised another ham. 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.

Yes, easy to figure out but I almost reassembled the radio before I noticed the extra screws. Obviously none of the above are killer issues and the radio itself is exceptional — so 4 2280h of 5.
Band scope function The band scope function lets you watch conditions near the receiving frequency and visually assists in finding other stations. Good but a better radio is now needed from ICOM as this one is showing its age, but here’s my spin on it: They do not 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.
For me the most damming weakness was intermod performance and susceptibility to paging systems interference. Mic problems sorted, D-Star provides superb audio, but it requires ideal conditions to deliver the goods. Once the conditions fall below a certain level, D-Star is sucked into a black hole, not a flaw, just the nature of the system.
It would be nice is you could add a second board for this to work. I get almost 60 watts on some portions of both bands. Each memory channel stores tone frequency, skip information and so on. Xband repeat is as simple as pushing 3 buttons in at same time. Within a single band, the radio compares signal strength from each antenna and chooses the better signal to maintain good sound and receive quality.
My main three complaints with the radio the reason I can’t give it 5 stars: New to Ham Radio? The ICH sends your location information either when the mic PTT switch is pushed, or at a preset interval 5 seconds – 30 minutes. 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 addition, tuning knobs and buttons for each band are arranged side-by-side, providing intuitive operation.
