PCR1000 & PCR100
IP1kC is a program that allows you to fully control the ICOM PCR1000 & PCR100, right from your Palm PDA. The Palm PDA is the perfect companion to the radio and with it you can achieve true portability. I also find it more convenient to use than a PC because of no hard disk or fan noise and best of all, no more waiting for boot time. IP1kC is very easy to use and includes features such as signal strength meter with auto update, up to 99 memories with description and last but not least, SCANNING !!!

IP1kC was written in 'C' and compiled with GCC / PRC-Tools 2.0, using Palm OS SDK 4.0. IP1kC has been successfully tested on a Palm 3C (color) running Palm OS 4.1 and on an IBM WorkPad C3 (monochrome) running Palm OS 3.5.

Enjoy, have fun and please e-mail me some feedback at [email protected]

Just tap on 'On' and you're in business... Settings are automatically saved on exit and restored when you start the program. Listening to VOA NEWS in Tokyo at 14:00 GMT...

A tap on the 'Volume' label will mute the radio. Another tap and the volume is back. Same with the Squelch.
To get the signal strength, select the option from the menu or just tap on 'Frequency :' or 'Tuning Step :' labels.

With just a 3-meter wire on the balcony, VOA comes in quite strong :-) The BBC too !!!

And if you select 'Auto', the signal strength will be automatically updated every second.
With the built-in keyboard, you can easily input any frequency. The View Serial Data option allows you to check out the data sent to and received from the radio.

Many scanning parameters to choose from, to make it as flexible as possible. If you select the 'Scan Memory' mode, make sure that you enter some frequencies in memory. Scanning in action...

Searching for an active frequency. You start / stop the scan by selecting the menu option or simply tap on the PCR1000 icon.
Scanning in action...

Pausing on an active frequency according to what was defined in the scanning parameters.

You use Memo Pad to enter up to 99 memories. I recommend you to separate your memories into several memos, as shown here. It will then be easier to manage your memories and when in 'Scan Memory' mode, it will only scan the memories of the one memo in which the current selected memory is located. Create a new memo and put 'IP1kC.c.Memory' in the first line, for the program to pick it up. Then simply enter your frequencies in Hertz, with no decimal point (max 10 digits), followed by a space and a description if you wish to (max 25 characters). Separate each memory with a Line Feed (one per line) and that's all folks !!! Then just tap on M+ / M- to navigate through your memories. If you have selected 'Scan Memory' in the scanning parameters, you can use the Palm Scroll Up & Down buttons as well, which is quite convenient indeed. Also after selecting a memory, tap on the memory description to display the memory counter for 3 seconds. Do not forget to e-mail me your comments, questions, ideas and let's make IP1kC even better.

CONNECTED YES, you will need a Null Modem Adaptor to connect your Palm with your PCR1000 / PCR100...
