Introducing the Icom IC-R30 Digital/Analogue Wideband Communications Receiver

Introducing the Icom IC-R30 Digital/Analogue Wideband Communications Receiver

The IC-R30 is Icom's latest wideband handheld receiver. Not only does it receive over a wide (0.1 to 3304.999 MHz) frequency range in AM, FM, WFM, USB, LSB and CW, but it can also decode digital modes including P25, NXDN, dPMR, D-STAR and Japanese domestic DCR.

With this much capability going on you could feel that you could get swamped by the potential number of signals you could receive. However, the IC-R30 has been designed to make scanning effortless and intuitive. A 2.3-inch large, dot-matrix display is incorporated allowing for large amounts of information to be clearly and logically arranged. The four-direction keypad provides straight-forward operation of all functions. The IC-R30 features high-speed scanning of 200 channels per second as well as various other scanning features.

The IC-R30 enables you to monitor two different bands (such as HF & UHF signals) simultaneously via the Dualwatch Operation. The IC-R30 also allows you to record the individual audio of two bands received while in the Dualwatch mode onto a microSD card in WAV format by utilising the Dual Band Recording Function.

The IC-R30 provides IP57 waterproof protection (1 m depth of water for 30 minutes), so you won’t have any problem using it outdoors in the rain. The built-in USB port has a range of convenient uses. You can either charge the IC-R30 in approximately 5 hours or carry out data transfer (including loading Memory channels) and CI-V remote control.
