antenna that's made for the frequency that you need to transmit on.
antenna mount cable will need to be terminated with a PL-259 (UHF Male)
type connector for this Radio.
Wideband receiver with simultaneous receive capability
The IC-2820H receives 118–549.995 and 810-999.990MHz with dualwatch receiver
capability that allows you to receive two bands simultaneously
(including within a single band). Almost all VHF & UHF communications are available
Diversity receive capability
If you have two antennas, diversity receive capability is useful for mobile operation
where the received signal strength changes continuously. Within a single band, the
radio compares signal strength from each antenna and chooses the better signal to
maintain good sound and receive quality.
50W output power on both VHF and UHF bands
A MOSFET power amplifier provides a powerful 50W on both the VHF and UHF bands,
making this compact rig’s signal travel for miles! Output power is selectable in
large 93×28(321/32 ×13/32 in) mm full
dot-matrix display presents an easy-to-read graphical interface, viewable over a
wide angle. Push the “Function” button to call up the assigned functions menu on
the display. In addition, tuning knobs and buttons for each band are arranged side-by-side,
providing intuitive operation.
Separate controller from main unit
The controller is separated from the main unit for flexible installation. The
controller has magnets on the rear panel, allowing y o attach the controller to
the main unit or other metal objects. This makes clean and neat installation easy!
A 3.4m separation cable, OPC-1663, and a short cable (10cm), OPC-1712, are included.
522 memory channels
The IC-2820H has a total of 522 memory channels, 500 regular channels, 2 call
channels and 20 scan edge channels. Each memory channel stores tone frequency, skip
information and so on. The Dynamic Memory Scan (DMS) system divides these memories
into 26 groups, A to Z, and provides easy channel selection. Of course, bank scanning
is also possible.
Band scope function
band scope function lets you watch conditions near the receiving frequency and visually
assists in finding other stations.

D-STAR digital voice + GPS receiver (With optional UT-123)
D-STAR DV mode + GPS receiver
The optional UT-123 provides D-STAR DV mode operation plus GPS receiver capability.
Your location information can be sent simultaneously with the digital voice transmission.
Location information exchange
The IC-2820H 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 IC-2820H displays the distance and direction to the station.
The GPS alarm alerts you by beeping when a preprogrammed point is within 500m
or 1km range from your location or any one of preprogrammed points is within a preset
GPS location tracking
When connected to a PC via the optional RS-232C cable, OPC-1529R, your own or
the received location information can be plotted by mapping software on a PC.
One touch reply function
The one-touch reply function makes it easy to respond to a calling station instantly.
In addition, up to 20 received callsigns are automatically stored as received call
Built-in voice recorder and auto reply function
The built-in voice recorder records an incoming call for up to 30-seconds (approx.),
(or 15 sec. × 2 tracks, 10 sec. × 3 tracks). The 10 sec. transmit memory allows
you to record your callsign or other message, and also automatically answers when
you receive a message.
Low-speed data communication
When connected to a PC via the optional data cable, OPC-1529R, data communication
is available simultaneously with a digital voice transmission.
DX communication over the D-STAR system
D-STAR repeaters for 144 and 440MHz are now available, allowing cross-band (144/440/1200
MHz) operation and long distance communication via the Internet over the D-STAR
