Yes this radio does have an extensive menu 2820 which does require some learning but to me that is all part of the fun. It is under the control head and if you plug in the GPS antenna you cannot have the control head attached to the radio. 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.
They do not show that once the board is installed there 282h two screws that hold the board down, the pictorial just shows it plugging into the slot, no screws shown.
D-Star is unnecessarily complex requiring you to travel through various wormholes to get to your destination; it could and should be simpler. For me the most damming weakness was intermod performance and susceptibility to paging systems interference.

Several hundred memories and several hours of work lost. In addition, up to 20 received callsigns are automatically stored as received call records. The ICH receives Tried another repeater and raised another ham. This radio is very solid and well made with a large array of features.
Separate controller from main unit Ucom controller is separated from the main unit for flexible installation. I tried icoj access a local D-Star repeater that was about a mile away. This makes clean and neat installation easy! Also, the cost is somewhat high when you consider that to add D-star, you need the UT module – an optional extra.
Mag mount control head is awesome. 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 iocm.
In addition, tuning knobs 22820h buttons for each band are arranged side-by-side, providing intuitive operation. I tried with a D-Star HT, the machine was working perfectly. 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 iclm. It works as a radio should i have it meanly for dstar.
I contacted the repair center in Michigan, they suggested a reset.
Used as a base station only I have had few problems. I would certainly expect it would have lasted idom longer before such serious problems came to light. In all fairness I have only had the radio a few days so hopefully I will still feel the same a few months down the road. I do use it in crossband mode it easy to do and works well. A soft reset should not erase the memories according to the manual. The ICH sends your location information either when the mic PTT switch is pushed, or at a preset interval 5 seconds – 30 minutes.

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. Output power is selectable in 3 steps. Will do a follow up review in the future but as of now this is by far my favorite rig. 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.

When available from a calling station, the ICH displays the distance and direction to the station. We tracked this down to the microphone and did a mod to fix this.
On the ucom, the controls are small and difficult to use while driving. I use third-party programming software which I found more capable than Icom’s.
FM transmission is not affected by this mod. This model requires I would recommend icomm rig if you live in the sticks but not in the city as I find intermod renders it unusable at times. One of the small things that I love the most is that you can display both freq and alpha tag at same time.
I use on Dstar 2820y FM. It is the perfect choice for my shack needs. This feature is useful when you are listening in a moving vehicle or the transmitting station itself is moving. 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.

My main three complaints with the radio the reason I can’t give it 5 stars: Band scope function The band scope function lets you watch conditions near the receiving frequency and visually assists in finding other stations.
Immediately back to thesame as before. It would be nice is you could add a second board 28220h this to work. Push the “Function” button to call up the assigned functions menu on the display. The band scope function lets you watch conditions near the receiving frequency and visually assists in finding other stations. Next time I’ll get the ID, which includes the D-star capability at the expense of dual-watch, for considerably less money.
Everything seemed iccom until I realized I was only receiving every other 28220h of his.
