Introducing the new IC-R6 compact handheld receiver from Icom. Small in size, measuring only 58 (W) x 86 (H) x 30(D) mm, the IC-R6 contains many big features that allow you to listen to the widest variety of broadcasts. Whether you are listening to something new while travelling or catching your favourite radio programs at home, the IC-R6 will become an indispensable piece of equipment for you to own and carry with you.
The IC-R6’s wide band reception of 0.100–1309.995MHz means that you can listen to anything from AM broadcast to UHF TV audio. Listen to international, national, regional and local broadcast radio stations, plus many more interesting frequencies such aircraft, air traffic control, marine bands or even listen to the motor racing teams at a race track. It is also ideal as a piece of test equipment for the professional radio engineer.
The IC-R6 has a drip-resistant case that protects the radio from harsh weather and damp conditions so you can take it virtually anywhere. The use of a large internal speaker and BTL (bridge-tied load) amplifier ensures loud, crystal clear audio whatever the level of background noise. A useful VSC (Voice squelch control) function improves the quality of reception by opening the squelch only when modulated signals are detected.
You can name each of the 1300 available memory channels, making frequencies easier to find. The IC-R6 has a 100 channels per second high speed scan capability, useful when searching over 1300MHz of spectrum!
With the optional software and cable IC-R6 programming and cloning is very easy. You can hook up the IC-R6 to a PC so you can customise channel names, scan lists, and more. In addition, the optional CT-17, CI-V level converter allows for PC remote control.
The IC-R6 comes complete with FA-S270C antenna, belt clip and a handbook.
