Unpacking

After unpacking, immediately report any damage to the delivering carrier or dealer. Keep the shipping cartons.

For a description and a diagram of accessory equipment included with the IC-R9500,see ‘Supplied accessories’ on p. iii of this manual.

Selecting a location

Select a location for the receiver that allows adequate air circulation and access to the front and rear panels. Do not place in areas subject to extreme heat, cold, or vibrations, or near TV sets, radios and other electromagnetic sources.

Grounding

To prevent electrical shock, television interference (TVI), broadcast interference (BCI) and other problems, ground the receiver through the GROUND terminal on the rear panel.

For best results, connect a heavy gauge wire or strap to a long earth-sunkcopper rod. Make the distance between the [GND] terminal and ground as short as possible.

R WARNING: NEVERconnect the [GND]

terminal to a gas or electric pipe, since the connec- tion could cause an explosion or electric shock.

Your antenna plays a very important role in receiver

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

operation. If the antenna is poor, your receiver cannot

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

give you the best performance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The IC-R9500requires at least 2 antennas (ANT 1/HF

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ANT 3, ANT 2) for full coverage from 100 kHz to 3335

About the “P.AMP2”

The “P.AMP 2” is a high gain receive amplifier. When the “P.AMP 2” is used when strong signal are present, distortion sometimes results. If this occurs, use the receiver with the “P.AMP 1” or “P.AMP OFF” setting.

The “P.AMP 2” is most effective when:

Used on bands above 24 MHz and when signals are weak.

Receive sensitivity is insufficient during low gain, or while using a narrow band antenna (such as small loop, a Beverage antenna or a short Yagi antenna).

Attenuator

[ATT]

The attenuator prevents a desired signal from being distorted by a very strong signals are near the desired frequency or when very strong electric fields, such as from broadcasting stations, are near your location.

Push [ATT] several times to select the desired attenuator or attenuator OFF.

During HF bands operation, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 dB are available.

During 30–1150MHz operation, 10, 20, 30 dB are available.

During 1150–3335MHz operation, only 20 dB is available.

Voice squelch control function

[VSC]

This function is useful when you don’t want unmodulated signals pausing or cancelling a scan. When the voice squelch control function is activated, the receiver checks received signals for voice components.

If a receiver signal includes voice components, and the tone of the voice components changes within 1 sec., scan pauses (or stops). If the received signal includes no voice components or the tone of the voice components does not change within 1 sec., scan resumes.

While a phone mode (FM, WFM, SSB, AM) is selected, push [VSC] to switch the VSC (Voice Squelch Control) function ON and OFF.

“VSC” appears when the function is activated.

• The VSC function activates for any scan.

• The VSC function resumes the scan on unmodu-

lated signals, regardless of whether the scan resume condition is set to ON or OFF.
