VHF/VHF, UHF/UHF simultaneous receive

The IC-2730A provides VHF/VHF, UHF/UHF simultaneous receive capability as well as VHF/UHF receive. Main dials, volume, squelch knobs and primal buttons are symmetrically laid out for each band.

Optional VS-3 Bluetooth® headset

The optional VS-3 Bluetooth® headset can wirelessly control the IC-2730A with three programmable and a PTT button. It also provides VOX operation for hands-free communication. (Optional UT-133 Bluetooth® unit must be installed in the IC-2730A.)

Easy-to-See large white backlight LCD

The display size of the IC-2730A is 1.5 times larger its predecessor, the IC-2720H. Frequency display and channel names are larger, and the white backlight provides higher contrast.

Easy controller mounting with the optional MBF-1

The combination of the optional MBF-1 suction cup mounting base and MBA-5 controller bracket provides easy tilt and swivel adjustments. The large suction cup can be mounted on flat surfaces and can be removed easily.

50 Watts of output on VHF and UHF

The IC-2730A employs a durable PA module and delivers 50 watts of high power operation on both VHF and UHF bands.

Built-in 50 CTCSS and 104 DTCS tones with split tone function

The CTCSS and DTCS tones are built-in for quiet stand-by and repeater access. The split tone function allows you to set CTCSS/ DTCS tones separately for repeater uplink and downlink on a per channel basis.

Controller attachment to the main Unit with optional MBA-4

With the optional MBA-4 combination bracket, the controller can be attached to the main unit. The microphone jacks are mounted on both the controller and main unit.

Wideband receiver

The IC-2730A covers 118–174 and 375– 550MHz. You will be able to listen to aviation, marine, weather channels and other utility communications.
