Warning: I do not endorse or recommend hardware or firmware (EEPROM) modification of your radio. If you choose to perform a modification, you do so at your own risk.  Also, there has been some discussion on the PCR1000 mailing list that you may be able to damage the PCR1000 by sending the wrong software commands to it.
The Icom PCR1000 is an ultra-wideband receiver (10 KHz to 1300 MHz!) which is completely controlled by an external computer, via a serial cable connection. The only control on the radio itself is an on/off switch! Of course, you can visit some of the sites above to learn more about it.
