icomlib(1) programs to control Icom PCR-1000 receiver


pcr [options] [frequency | start_freq stop_freq freq_step]
qpcr1k [options] [frequency | start_freq stop_freq freq_step]


This manual page documents briefly the pcr and qpcr1k commands. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

pcr is a console program, and qpcr1k is an X GUI program that controls an Icome PCR-1000 receiver. That receiver is designed to be controlled via a serial port connection.


A summary of options is included below.
-v <vol>
Set volume, integer values from 0-99, default 70.
Turn on scan mode
Turn on AGC
Turn on noise blanker
Turn on RF Attenuator
-h <holdpoint>
Set hold point, integer 0-255, default 80
-w <wait>
Set wait tme, positive integers, default 5
-t <sqtone>
Set tone squelch frequency
-q <squelch>
Set squelch, integer 0-99, default 40
-f <bw>
Set filter bandwidth, 3, 6, 15, 50, and 230, default 15 kHz
-p <serial_port>
Specify port the radio is attached to, default /dev/pcr1000
-u <logfile>
Switch on unattended mode, using specified log file.
-l <logfile>
Switch on replay mode, using specified logfile
-m <mode>
Specify mode: LSB, USB, AM, CW, NFM, WFM

These options may be followed by a frequency in MHz to tune the radio, or - if the scanning mode is set by the -s option, then start, stop frequencies in MHz and step frequency in kHZ must be specified.


Standard mode:

        pcr -p/dev/ttyS0 -v70 -q40 -f15 -mnfm -w10 146.52
Scanner mode:

   lower_freq   = Lower frequency in megahertz

   upper_freq   = Upper frequency in megahertz

   step_freq    = Step frequency in kilohertz

     pcr -p/dev/ttyS0 -v70 -q40 -f15 -mnfm -h70 -u2m.log -s 144 148 5
Replay mode:

   <logfile>    = File name of old log to replay

     pcr -p/dev/ttyS0 -v70 -q40 -f15 -mnfm -h70 -l 2m.log
