V10MR User Programming Guide
Your new V10MR, in its default state, works correctly with other new (no programming changes) V10MR radios. Please refer to your instruction manual for basic steps to operate the radio with no programming changes.
Should you want to change channel assignments, tones, or special features, your V10MR radio has a number of advanced radio features that can be enabled through its software (CS-V10MR).
To program the radios, you will need the following:
 CS-V10MR Cloning Software. Available for free download on the Icom America website (Products >Landmobile >V10MR).
 OPC 478UC Cloning Cable ("B" version only). Available from an Icom America Landmobile Dealer in your area.
 PC running Windows 10 operating system. Note: Apple and Android software is not available.

CS-V10MR Software Modes
The CS-V10MR software has two modes, Simple and Full.
Simple Programming Mode: Allows adding duplicates of the 5 MURS frequencies for the purpose of using different CTCSS or DTCS tones.
Full Programming Mode: Allows adding duplicates of the 5 MURS frequencies and the addition of a larger suite of features.
Note: Incorrect Settings in the Full Programming Mode can cause incorrect operation of the radio. Icom suggests these features be programmed by an Icom dealer only.

Programming in Simple Mode
Memory Channel programming is shown below.

1 Inh

Do not use. For use in radios with Displays only.

2 Frequency (MHz) Contains the 5 MURS frequencies. Only these frequencies can be entered in the 16 channel slots. Extra Channel slots are provided if you need to duplicate frequencies using different CTCSS or DTCS tones.

3 C. Tone

This shows the CTCSS or DTCS tone.

You can program tones for each channel in both simple and full modes. On any given channel/frequency, radios must have matching tones if they are to decode each other's audio.

4 Text

Do not use-For use in other model radios with Displays only.

5 Compander

The Compander compresses the signal to reduce background noise. If this setting is enabled, all radios must have it enabled for it to work properly on that channel. This feature may not work effectively with non-Icom radios.

6 PWR Save

This feature saves power by allowing the radio to go into a partial sleep mode during times when there is no RX or TX traffic.

2. Click SQL Level and select the desired number. Note: A setting of 2 is optimal. Scan Programming Assumptions:
 Software is in Full Mode  SQL Level is set correctly  Frequencies and sub-audible tones have been programmed in and tested for correct
communication. Note: For complete descriptions of these settings, please refer to the Help files in the programming software.

 Resume- Upon Power Up, the radio resumes scan if the radio was scanning when the power was turned off.
 On- Radio begins scanning upon Power Up. 2. Scan List screen. Select Normal Scan. It scans, in sequence, all selected channels in a "round
robin" fashion, starting with the channel set on your rotary knob.
3. In TX CH, select the channel you would normally transmit on while in scan, or when scan is paused. In this example it is set to Last Ch.  TX Action setting either cancels scan or allows scan to resume automatically. If set to Cancel Scan, restarting requires pushing the Scan Start/Stop button (see To Start a Scan following) If set to Pause Scan, scan resumes after the resume timer (Scan Setting screen) has expired.
4. In Cancel Channel, set the channel that you will return to when scan is cancelled using the Scan Start/Stop button, assigned in the Key and Display screen as described below.
