Mike Rivers made that cheat sheet. He is a member on here by the same username. PM him and ask him if it will work.

Icom R10 Cheat Sheet

1. Press power button.

2. Press v/m button until you see VFO on display.

3. Press mode button until you see LSB on display.

4. Now enter your collar frequency ( ex. 217.5550) Most collars only have three digits after the decimal. Put ) in the last place.

5. Rotate tuning dial to tune collar to sharpest beep. Make sure when turning tune knob, the last digit to the right of decimal is changing. If not, tune steps must be changed. See page 13 of owners manual.

6. Squelch knob controls the amount of gain or reception. Rotaing counter clockwise increases gain, rotating clockwise decreases gain.

7. On top of the squelsch knob is the volume knob. Adjust to your liking.

8. If the dog is close and overpowering the receiver, the attenuator can be turned on. To turn on attenuator press and hold function button (on side of receiver) then press 0. ATT should now be on display. To turn off perform same function as turning on. Do not leave ATT on, this greatly reduces tracking distance.

9. To reset receiver, with power off, press and hold the clear button. Press power on button, receiver will ask you to clear. Turn dial until display says: yes. Press enter. This will reset receiver back to factory default.

For me, my experience has been dependent upon the area of where I was hunting. I have picked up better in one mode and hunting a different terrain picked up better using the other mode.

Any one have the instructions how to program the collars into the memory side of things. I need to get my new collars programed into it and I can't remember the trick, and Of course I'l lost the Manual.

the CW portion will give you a distinctive beep where as on LSB it will give you a total different sound. Being a Ham radio operator was wondering why more ppl did not use the small hand held receivers out there by Kenwood,ICOM,Yasu also if you want more distance out of the unit do a search on quad antennas or more element yagi.

ya buckshot how do you judge the distance with the icom..just by the beep or like with the gain control and att....ive never had to track anything way out yet everythings been in chunks of woods like 2-3 miles sqare.

CW should work best. Because cw is morse code, which is a beep as well. All the other modes are for voice transmission. Thought it might help.
