Icom Dual Band Transceiver IC-2730A

Practical Analog Dual Bander with Optional Bluetooth Headset
Analog has never been so simple as with the IC-2730A. The IC-2730A is an easy to use, dual band mobile with simultaneous receive as 50 Watts RF output on both VHF and UHF. The separate tuning, volume, and squelch knobs, as well as basic control buttons, on each side of the radio, allowing you to have quick and precise control over your radio without taking your eyes off the road.

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. 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 Visibility
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. 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.

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

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