The IC-R8600 is a super wideband 10 kHz to 3 GHz communication receiver that enables you to hear and see
a wide variety of signals in various ways.

Not only does it decode diverse digital communication signals, but the advanced FPGA processing technologies implemented provide clarity and accuracy of received signals.

10 kHz to 3 GHz Super Wideband Coverage
The IC-R8600 decodes various digital protocol signals including P25 (Phase 1), NXDN™, dPMR™, D-STAR, Japanese DCR (Digital Convenience Radio) as well as receives conventional analog signals such as USB, LSB, FSK, CW, AM, S-AM (Synchronous-AM), FM and WFM modes, covering 10 kHz to 3 GHz wideband in 1 Hz steps.

Absolute Value of RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator)
The IC-R8600 shows S-meter, dBì, dBì (emf) and dBm meter types in the RSSI. The dBì, dBì (emf) and dBm meter has a high ±3 dB accuracy* (between 0.5–1100 MHz) that can be used for measuring signal strength level.
* Less than ±6 dB between 1100–3000 MHz. 

Software Demodulation in FPGA Processing
The IC-R8600 utilizes FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) and DSP units for demodulation, decoding and most of signal processing. Direct HF signals and intermediate frequency signals, which are converted from VHF/UHF signals, are digitized in a 14-bit A/D converter and transferred to the FPGA and DSP for optimal processing. The high-rate 122.88 MHz sampling frequency used for the A/D converter results in superior aliasing and image reception reduction. 

Superb Receiver Performance
The IC-R8600 has 11 discrete RF bandpass filters in the HF bands and 13 bandpass filters in the VHF/UHF bands. To prevent overflow, only the intended signal is passed, while any out of range strong minterference signals are rejected. The IC-R8600 provides +30 dBm IP3 and 105 dB dynamic range at 14.1 MHz. IP3 performance is +10 dBm at 144 MHz and 0 dBm at 440 MHz.

Ample Memory Channels
The IC-R8600 has up to 2000 regular memory channels assignable to 100 groups. In addition to the regular memory channels, up to 100 scan skip channels and 50 pairs of program scan edges can be set. The auto memory write scan automatically stores busy frequencies in
the auto memory write channels (up to 200 channels). These memory channels and various settings can be edited with the optional CS-R8600 programming software on a Windows® PC. 

Variety of Scan Functions
A variety of scan functions effectively and thoroughly search for desired stations. The IC-R8600 scans up to 100 channels per second in the memory scan mode.

  • Program scan/Fine program scan
  • Δf scan/Δf fine scan
  • Priority scan
  • Memory scan
  • Selected memory scan
  • Selected mode memory scan
  • Auto memory write scan 
Real-time Spectrum Scope with Waterfall Function
The high-resolution real-time spectrum scope provides class-leading performance in resolution, maximum 30 frames per second* fast sweep speed, ±2.5 MHz wide scope span (display range) and 110 dB of dynamic range (at ±2.5 kHz span). The waterfall screen allows you to find weak signals by showing the spectrum change over time. When tapping the spectrum scope or waterfall screen, the tapped area can be selected as the operating frequency. The peak search function finds several peak frequencies within the scope range, and helps you to select these.

Quick, Smooth and Intuitive Operation
To efficiently acquire intended signals, the IC-R8600 user interface provides quick and accurate operation. The large 4.3-inch color display, with touch screen function, is configured to collect operating information. By tapping indications and icons on the screen, the
setting menu will pop up and parameters can easily be adjusted. When either the DIAL A, B or C multi function control knobs is pushed, various functions, such as scan speed, RF gain, audio tone, display backlight or other menus will pop up on the display.
SD Card* Slot for Receiver Recorder
The recorder function can record received audio onto an SD card in
WAVE format. The recorded voice audio can be played back on the
receiver or a PC. When a 32 GB SD card is used, up to 270 hours of
recording is possible. In addition, the screen capture function saves a
snap shot of the screen in PNG or BMP format on the SD card.
* An SD card is required separately. 

Remote Control Function through IP Network or USB Cable

The optional RS-R8600 PC remote control software allows you to listen to received audio and control most of the receiver functions, including the
spectrum scope, through an IP network or USB cable. 

I/Q Signal Output
The I/Q signal output function* allows you to derive digital IF signals from the I/Q output
jack. It can be used for analyzing spectrum or decoding signals.
*This function will be provided with future firmware update.
A third-party software may be required separately.
