Description :

The IC-R30 covers a wide frequency range from 0.1 to 3305 MHz, and receives conventional analog signals such as AM, FM, WFM, USB, LSB and CW as well as digital modes including P25 (Phase 1), NXDN, dPMR, D-STAR (Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio) and Japanese domestic DCR (Digital Convenience Radio). A ferrite bar antenna for AM broadcasts is built-in, and the earphone cable can be used as an external antenna for FM broadcasts. With dualwatch operation the radio can receive on different bands and different modes: for example, short wave (HF) and local PMR signals (on V/UHF) can be monitored simultaneously. You can scan for other active channels on the B band, while receiving the main signal on the A band. With dual band recording function the audio received while in the dualwatch mode can be individually recorded into a micro-card (microSD / microSDHC) in the WAV format. The recorded audio can be played back on the receiver or a PC. In addition, frequency, mode, S-meter reading, time, current position data and altitude can be saved with received audio.

The ICR30 scans approximately 200 channels per second in the A band, and 150 channels per second in the B band. You can quickly find and lock in to a desired signal. The receiver has variety of scan functions:

  • Near station scan

    Using GPS location information and the Memory channels, the IC-R30 can display and scan up to 50 stations within 160 km (99.4 ml) from your current location, in proximity order.

  • Auto memory write scan

    Automatically stores received frequencies, up to 200 CH, during a Programmed scan.

  • Priority scan

    Checks for signals on a frequency every 5 seconds, while operating on a VFO frequency or scanning.

  • Tone scan

    Detects a sub-audible tone frequency or the DTCS code in a received signal.

  • More scan

    Program scan, Memory scan, Memory mode scan, Group scan, Group link scan.

The IC-R30 with tone squelch operation opens only when is received a signal that includes a matching tone. Tone squelch type: CTCSS and DTCS with polarity Normal or Reverse, Digital Code Squelch (CSQL) for D-STAR mode, Network Access Code (NAC) for APCO P25 mode, Group Code (Common ID) for dPMR Tier1, CC code for dPMR Tier2, Radio Access Number (RAN) for NXDN-VN and NXDN-N mode, User Code (UC) for DCR mode.

Other features: Descrambler function for dPMR (Tier2 Mode1/Mode2) communication, by entering the appropriate key. Decryption function for NXDN and DCR communication, by entering the appropriate key. Voice squelch control (VSC) for FM / WFM / AM mode. Auto frequency control (AFC) for FM / WFM mode. Noise blanker and ANL (Auto Noise Limiter). RF gain control and ATT function. Band scope function. 2000 regular memory channels, with 8-character name. Power save function, on 3 steps. Clock. Optional VS-3 Bluetooth headset.
