Japanese domestic DCR (Digital Convenience Radio).

0.1–3304.999 MHz Wideband Coverage

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

Dualwatch Operation

Dualwatch Operation
Dualwatch screen

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.


Dual Band Recording Function

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.
