Description :

The DJ-X30 is a compact scanner aimed for listening only in AM and FM modes with an autonomy of 22 hours, with high capacity batteries, which ensures uninterrupted use for practically a whole day. The optional power supply can recharge the batteries while it is simultaneously active in reception. There are 1000 memory locations distributed in 10 banks and with the suitable software, downloadable from the Alinco web site, it is still possible to change the distribution by freely arranging up to 50 separate banks to adapt the receiver's operation to the number and types of frequencies/channels that can be inserted into the memory. Different search options: between band limits, within memories according to preferences, from VFO, based on CTCSS subaudio tones.

In addition, three different elements characterize this Alinco receiver. The presence of a frequency inversion scrambler decoder to make voice communications otherwise unintelligible. The temporary deactivation / activation of all the skip settings associated with the memories, we remind you that skip function allows to exclude a specific location during the search, so to modify the profile of a scan without reprogramming the single frequencies. Finally, the possibility of adapting the front panel choosing whether to keep or remove the keyboard, an intervention that simplifies the use in relation to the user's experience.

Other features: RF attenuator, monitor / mute function, remote control via cable (optional), power-save mode or auto-power-off respectively in order to partialize the activity time or turn off the equipment after a pre-established period to preserve the batteries. Besides the flexible antenna, a ferrite antenna is incorporated to improve the reception of the Medium Waves and as an auxiliary antenna the cable of an earphone can also be used (optional) reducing the encumbrance to the advantage of discretionary use. The receiver allows the cloning of the memories from a PC and also between two DJ-X30, the software is free while a optional interface cables are required.
