Next generation base receiver... Icom IC-R8500 Super Widband Receiver, it's on HF where the Icom really shines. The R8500 has both a Noise Blanker circuit and Intermediate Frequency Shift that really help reduce or eliminate interference on shortwave frequencies. The Icom's Audio Peak Filter is also very effective at helping voices to 'pop out' of the HF background noise.
R8500 construction is impressive. A rugged, die-cast aluminum chassis is used to hold and shield the various circuit boards. The large padded tuning knob and rubber keys exude quality and are easy to operate.... The yellow backlit LCD display has excellent contrast, making it much easier to read.
