ICOM IC V82 Review

Icom IC V82ICOM IC-V82 Hand-Held Transceiver - Review.

The IC-V82 is a hard wearing and modern design and, in our tests, we felt it to be the perfect model to introduce a beginner to the world of amateur radio or to anyone looking for an easy to operate 2 meter band transceiver. This high power hand held 7 watt VHF transceiver has a digital voice and data capability.

Amongst the features of the IC-V82 is a back-lit LCD that can display 5 alphanumeric characters that will show various functions such as output power during transmitting, S-Meter for indicating signal strength, channel name and frequency. There are 207 memory locations available to the user and the facility to allocate user defined channel names to assist identification.

We found that the rotary selector on the top panel and the up/down buttons on the front for functions such as volume and channel change make operation of the IC-V82 simplicity itself, this is ideal for use while on the move and for the novice.

Other features of the ICOM IC-V82 such as a Dynamic Memory Scan facility. This separates the memory into banks of 10 labeled A-J for ease of selection.

This hand held offering by Icom also has a CTCSS, DTCS tone and a digital code squelch feature and a DTMF and pager facility to control a repeater remotely, for example. The digital code squelch operates when receiving a modulated signal thus remaining quiet and in stand-by until such a signal is received.

There is also a position information exchange facility. A GPS can be connected to the IC-V82 via it's data jack socket. Position data can then be exchanged by either pressing the transmit button or by means of an automatic interval setting of between 0.5 and 30 minutes.

There is an extensive selection of accessories available for the ICOM IC-V82 including antenna, battery packs, chargers, headsets and speaker-microphone combinations.
