NAMEicomlib - programs to control Icom PCR-1000 receiver
SYNOPSISpcr [options] [frequency | start_freq stop_freq freq_step] qpcr1k [options] [frequency | start_freq stop_freq freq_step]
DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the pcr and qpcr1k commands. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. pcr is a console program, and qpcr1k is an X GUI program that controls an Icome PCR-1000 receiver. That receiver is designed to be controlled via a serial port connection.
OPTIONSA summary of options is included below. -v <vol> Set volume, integer values from 0-99, default 70. -s Turn on scan mode -a Turn on AGC -n Turn on noise blanker -r Turn on RF Attenuator -h <holdpoint> Set hold point, integer 0-255, default 80 -w <wait> Set wait tme, positive integers, default 5 -t <sqtone> Set tone squelch frequency -q <squelch> Set squelch, integer 0-99, default 40 -f <bw> Set filter bandwidth, 3, 6, 15, 50, and 230, default 15 kHz -p <serial_port> Specify port the radio is attached to, default /dev/pcr1000 -u <logfile> Switch on unattended mode, using specified log file. -l <logfile> Switch on replay mode, using specified logfile -m <mode> Specify mode: LSB, USB, AM, CW, NFM, WFM These options may be followed by a frequency in MHz to tune the radio, or - if the scanning mode is set by the -s option, then start, stop frequencies in MHz and step frequency in kHZ must be specified.
EXAMPLESStandard mode: pcr -p/dev/ttyS0 -v70 -q40 -f15 -mnfm -w10 146.52 Scanner mode: lower_freq = Lower frequency in megahertz upper_freq = Upper frequency in megahertz step_freq = Step frequency in kilohertz pcr -p/dev/ttyS0 -v70 -q40 -f15 -mnfm -h70 -u2m.log -s 144 148 5 Replay mode: <logfile> = File name of old log to replay pcr -p/dev/ttyS0 -v70 -q40 -f15 -mnfm -h70 -l 2m.log
SEE ALSOpcrd(1), rx320(1). Other pacakges that can control the radio use hamlib: grip, sgcontrol, hamlib-utils. The programs are documented fully by icomlib-doc, available as a debian package.
