This is a complex rig and it takes a while to get your head around the 28200h systems. On the downside, the controls are small and difficult to use while driving.
We were BOTH in direct sight of our respective repeaters. Yes, easy to figure out but I almost reassembled 220h radio before I noticed the extra screws. In addition, up to 20 received callsigns are automatically stored as received call records. 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.
Fast forward a few months. Not the case here. Will do a follow up review in the future but as of now this is by far my favorite rig. The ICH sends your location information either when the mic PTT switch is pushed, or at a preset interval 5 seconds – 30 minutes.
When available from a calling station, the ICH displays the distance and direction to the 2820g. 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 well. When paired with a Diamond dual-band mobile antenna, selectivity and icon are excellent in my locality.
I tried with a D-Star HT, the machine was working perfectly. The ICH has a total of memory channels, regular channels, 2 call channels and 20 scan edge channels. Not great for base 2820u use. I use on Dstar and FM. A soft reset should not erase the memories according to the manual. Email Subscription You are not subscribed to this review.

Transmitted audio is good. It works as a radio should i have it meanly for dstar. Of course, bank scanning is also possible. Tried another repeater and raised another ham.
Push the “Function” button to call up the assigned functions menu on the display. This radio comes with full function backlit HM remote DTMF hand mic, mounting bracket, power cord and spare fuses.
Xband repeat is as simple as pushing 3 buttons in at same time. If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager. The ICH receives My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. The H has one of 282h0 worst-translated and most difficult to understand and least logically laid out manual it has ever been my pleasure to hate.
I do use it in crossband mode it easy to do and works well.
Icom ICH H Amateur Mobile Transceiver
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. This makes clean and neat installation easy! Separate controller from main unit The controller is separated from the main unit for flexible installation. Several hundred memories and several hours of work lost. Next time I’ll get the ID, which includes the D-star capability at the expense of dual-watch, for considerably less money.
I use third-party programming software which I found more capable than Icom’s. 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. Output power is selectable in 3 steps. The TX audio is tinny and pinched, devoid of low frequencies and must be modified to address the problems.
Used as a base station only I have had few problems.
Icom IC 2820H Radio Transceiver
Everything seemed ok until I realized I was only receiving every other transmission of his. One of the small things that I love the most is that you can display both freq and alpha tag at same time.
This time it wiped the radio completely. Within a single band, the radio compares signal strength from each antenna and chooses the better signal to 28820h good sound and receive quality. 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.
