I'll let others respond to your other questions.
I have a PCR-1000 that I used primarily for the 2.4 GHz downlink along 
with a TranSys downconverter.  The PCR-1000 is a box about the size of a 
paperback book and has only a power switch on the front and antenna, 
power, serial data, and external speaker jacks on the back.  There is no 
way to control it without a computer.  It works quite well.  I found 
that I do not like having no VFO, but it was not too bad.  Overall, I am 
very happy with the receiver.  I have used it for a few other things, 
but primarily it was the AO-40 receiver.
