Dual Band Operation, Including Dual Band Record

The R30 can receive on different bands and different modes. For example, users can monitor HF and UHF signals simultaneously. The R30 also allows users to scan for other active channels on the B band while receiving the main signal on the A band.

Individually record the audio of the two bands received while in the Dualwatch mode onto a microSD card* in the WAV format. Play back the recorded audio 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.

Use a microSD card* for data storage. Recording/playback of received audio, RX history log, radio set tings and GPS logger data can all be loaded onto the microSD card.
*MSD card sold separately

High Speed Scan

The R30 scans approximately 200 channels per second in the A band and 150 channels per second in the B band. Quickly find and lock in to a desired signal.

R30’s variety of scan functions includes:

  • Near station scan - Using GPS location information and the Memory channels, the R30 can display and scan up to 50 stations within 160km from your current location, in proximity order. Just program the station’s position data in advance.
  • Auto memory write scan - Automatically stores received frequencies (up to 200Ch) during a Programmed scan.
  • Priority scan - Checks for signals on a frequency every 5 seconds, while operating on a VFO frequency or scanning.

GPS Receiver

The integrated GPS receiver displays your current position data, course, speed and altitude on the display. Save the GPS data in recorded audio files.
