Product Description

R8600 Unblocked Version


The Icom IC-R8600 wideband communications receiver raises the bar on sophisticated radio monitoring. This ground breaking receiver made its world debut at the Tokyo Ham Fair on August 19, 2016. The IC-R8600 covers 100 kHz to 3000 MHz (less cellular) in AM, USB, LSB, CW, FM and decodes multiple digital protocols, including Baudot RTTY, D-STAR™, NXDN™, dPMR™, DCR (Digital Communication Radio) and APCO P25. It has a large 4.3 inch color TFT touch screen display with fast spectrum scope and waterfall display. The advance circuit employs modern FPGA/DSP base SDR architecture (under 30 MHz) and traditional superheterodyne circuitry. 2000 memories (in 100 groups) are available storing frequency, mode, tone, step, etc. Optional RS-R8600 PC remote control software allows control of all receiver functions. There is a convenient SD card slot for received log, decode log and voice recording. Other refinements include: Absolute value display of electric field intensity, Sleep timer function (5 to 120 minutes in 5 minute steps), Attenuator, Center tune indicator (FM/WFM/each digital mode), Digital AFC, Tone control (HPF/LPF, BASS/TREBLE, De-Emphasis), Noise Blanker, Speech function (Japanese/English), Dial tension adjust, Auto TS function, Main dial & panel lock functions, S-AM (AM synchronous detection mode) and Multiple digital squelch settings.

The rear panel features:  10.7 MHz IF Output, LAN Port, Mute Line, Reference I/O, I/Q output, External speaker jack, AF/IF output, CI-V remote terminal, USB port, DC power Input jack, S meter output jack, Aux., three antenna jacks (N/SO239/RCA) and ground terminal. The I/Q signal output supports use with third-party SDR software and/or external decoding.

This radio comes with: fused DC power cord (9.8 feet), spare fuse, DC power short connector, three 3.5mm audio plugs, two RCA plugs, spare blade fuse (3A/32V), two spare glass fuses (3A/125V). The IC-R8600 is a 12 VDC device and requires a power supply for AC use.

The Icom IC-R8600-GOVT unblocked version can be purchased by the Federal government or for export only.
This special order government version is not available via on-line ordering.

The Icom IC-R8600 is now FCC APPROVED!

  1. Outstanding DC to Daylight Reciever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Dec 2017

    Coming from a prior Icom IC7100 to this, I feel like Rip Van Winkle waking up! What an advance in technology - it will take me quite a while to figure out how to take full advantage of the superior receiver. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but for the feature set, worth. Only disappointment is that it will not decode DMR. Of course, to clear up any misconception, this is a receiver and not a scanner - it will not, on its own, be able to followed trunked communication. The bandscope is great - my first exposure to this technology and it took me all of 15 seconds to love it! The unit came very well packed from MTC, a contrast to many items mailed from Amazon.
