The Icom R100 is a compact multi-function receiver covering from 100 kHz to 800 MHz and 900 to 1856 MHz (specifications guaranteed from 500 kHz to 800 and 900 to 1800 MHz). Reception modes include AM, FM and FM-wide. The R100 is easy to operate. You can use either the keypad or tuning control to access frequency and memory channels. Of the 121 total memory channels, 100 store operating frequencies, modes, RF attenuator and preamplifier settings. 20 scan edge memory channels are used for specifying ten pairs of frequency ranges required for programmed scan. Auto-memory write automatically memorizes received frequencies (channels 80 ~ 99). One channel is used for priority scan. The built-in 24 hour clock-timer has lithium battery backup. A 15 dB preamp operates in the 50 to 800 MHz range. Three separate antenna jacks on the rear panel are utilized for 0.1 - 50 (SO239), 50 - 800 (N) and 905 - 1856 MHz (N). A large backlit LCD ensures readability. Other supplied features include: AFC, ANL, mobile bracket and telescopic antenna.
The R100-3 model is the same as the R100-11, but without the 800-900 MHz gap. The R100-3 was available for government or export only.
