DC to Daylight: Icom's New IC-R30 Handheld Receiver


Kirkland, Wash. (June 2018) – It covers 0.1–3304.999 MHz. Plus it gives users the ability to decode multiple digital modes as well as traditional analog modes. The large 2.3 inch LCD display makes operating the radio a breeze with a new intuitive user interface allowing you to see information from both receivers. With dual receive operation, you can simultaneously listen to two signals and record the activity to share the excitement with others. The supplied Li-Ion battery, BP-287, provides over 8 hours of operating time.

In addition to an amazingly fast scan rate, up to 200 channels per second, the IC-R30 can automatically program the 2,000 memory channels with the auto memory write scan function. Other scanning options include priority scan, tone scan, program scan, and group scans. You can further monitor a channel in band A while scanning in band B.

The integrated GPS receiver displays your current position data, course, speed, and altitude. You can also save the GPS data in recorded audio files. The R30 can list up to 50 stations approximately 100 miles from your current location, as long as the station’s position data is programmed in advance in the memory channels. It can then incorporate that information to drive a near station scan. You'll quickly find the active signal and lock in.
