Model: ICOM IC-R30
The IC-R30 decodes various digital protocol signals, including P25 (Phase 1), NXDN™, dPMR™, D-STAR (Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio) and
Japanese domestic DCR (Digital Convenience Radio).
The IC-R30 covers a wide frequency range from 0.1 to 3304.999 MHz, and receives conventional analog signals such as AM, FM, WFM, USB, LSB and CW as
well as digital modes*. A ferrite bar antenna for AM broadcasts is built-in, and the earphone cable can be used as an external antenna for FM
* SSB, CW and digital modes: 0.1 MHz–1.3 GHz. Usable frequencies and modes differ, depending on the selected A or B band. See specifications for
The radio can receive on different bands and different modes. For example, HF and UHF signals can be monitored simultaneously. You
can scan for other active channels on the B band, while receiving the main signal on the A band.
The audio of the two bands received while in the Dualwatch mode can be individually recorded onto a microSD card* 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.
* A microSD/microSDHC card is required.
Information screen of received voice
A 2.3 inch large, dot-matrix display is used in the IC-R30. Screens with large amounts of information are clearly and logically arranged.
The four direction keypad provides straight-forward operation of all functions.
The IC-R30 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 IC-R30 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.
* The position data of the stations must be programmed in advance.
Auto memory write scan
Automatically stores received frequencies (up to 200 Ch) during a Programmed scan.
Checks for signals on a frequency every 5 seconds, while operating on a VFO frequency or scanning.
Detects a sub-audible tone frequency or the DTCS code in a received signal.
Program scan, Memory scan, Memory mode scan, Group scan, Group link scan and more.
The integrated GPS receiver displays your current position data, course, speed and altitude on the display. GPS data can also be
saved in recorded audio files. The IC-R30 can list up up to 50 stations within 160 km; 99.4 ml from your current location*.
* The position data of each station must be preprogrammed in the Memory channels.
The band scope function enables you to visually search a specified frequency range around the received signal and see the relative
received signal strength level. You can jump to the desired signal on the band scope to set the radio to that frequency.
The Speech function reads out the operating frequency and mode when you rotate the dial knob, or press the [SPEECH] button. This function is
convenient for making radio adjustments with the Bluetooth® headset without having to look at the radio.
The IC-R30 has superior IP57 waterproof protection (1 m depth of water for 30 minutes). It can be used in harsh outdoor environments. The radio
also passes MIL-STD-810-G specifications.
The supplied BP-287 Li-ion battery pack provides 8 hours and 20 minutes* of operation. The optional BP-293 battery case, with AA (LR6) alkaline
cells, can be used in as a convenient backup battery.
* The Dualwatch function is ON (A band: continuously receiving, B band: standing by), the Power Save function is set to “Auto (Short),” the internal
speaker’s volume is set to “20,” the GPS function is ON, and the Bluetooth function is OFF.
The built-in USB port has a range of convenient uses. You can charge the IC-R30 in approximately 5 hours,* carry out data transfer (including loading Memory channels) and CI-V remote control.
* Using with a 1 A USB charger. The IC-R30 is Power OFF.
You can 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.
* A microSD/microSDHC is required (up to 32 GB).
With the optional VS-3 Bluetooth® headset, you can wirelessly listen to received audio. The VS-3 has volume UP/DOWN buttons and four programmable
buttons to remotely control certain functions.
Using the CS-R30, you can smoothly edit the following settings on a PC;
OS: Microsoft® Windows®10, Windows®8.1 (* Except for Windows® RT) or , Windows®7
