USB connection PC receiver
The IC-PC turns your PC into a wideband receiver. Just connect it to the USB port on your PC. All functions can be controlled on your desktop and the received signals can be heard through your computer’s audio system via USB cable.
Dualwatch capability*1
The IC-PC covers 0.01–3299.999 MHz in AM, FM, WFM, SSB, CW, DV*2 and P25*3 modes on the main band, while the sub-band simultaneously covers 50–1300MHz in AM, FM and WFM modes*4.
*1 Two antennas are required for dualwatch receive.
*2 Optional UT-118 required.
*3 Optional UT-122 required. Already installed with some versions.
*4 Frequency range differs depending on version.

Diversity receive capability
When two antennas are connected to the IC-PCR, it provides diversity reception*. Diversity reception compares signal strengths continuously and selects the better antenna to maintain good sound quality.
* Available in FM/DV/P25 mode between 50-1300 MHz only. Cannot use the diversity receive function while using the dualwatch function.
Digital mode reception
The optional UT-118 D-STAR digital unit and UT-122* P25 digital unit can be installed io the IC-PCR2500. Catch the action in digital communications as well!
* Already installed with some versions.
3 interface screens to choose from
Choose the look you want from three user interface screens. “Multi-function receiver”, “Component” and “Simple” screen are selectable.
DTMF remote control capability
Not only display the message, but also execute a PC program or sound a beep when receiving a matching DTMF code. This function is standard on the main band, while the optional UT-108 DTMF decoder is required for the sub-band.
Multi channel monitor function
You can monitor up to 25 channels. The software tracks the channel activities with S-meter levels as status for each channel is visually displayed by three background colors. Simply click the busy channel and the PCR2500 tunes to the active channel.
