Default R30 Resources

Now that the IC-R30 is available I think it would be helpful to have a separate thread for resources we have identified or created for this receiver. For example, Hit Factor was kind enough to share two csv files but the links are buried in the release date thread and they are likely to be overlooked by someone looking for them. I am looking for a soft case (Icom LC-189) and programming software and so far neither is available. As soon as I find either I will post the source in this thread. I'm also interested in identifying a suitable Pelican or similar case. If anyone finds one please share you experience.

Default I'll start

Here is a link to Hit Factor's post, with links to two csv files, in the Release Date thread. http://forums.radioreference.com/ico...ml#post2945810

Default Memory file tips

Today I put together a memory file by cutting and pasting from the RR databases into Hit Factor's template. I noticed that if I have too many decimal places in the frequency that memory location will not be written to the radio. Similarly, if I try a mode that the radio does not have, that memory location will not be written to the radio. Bottom line, you can cut and paste from the RR database but the file will need some curation before it works.

Other than these minor glitches, in less than 30 minutes I have 11 banks and hundreds of memory locations programmed.

Excellent.

Another one that got me this morning. Narrow FM is not nfm, it is fm-n.

Sorry, not buying the Icom software at that price. It seems to use the same GUI, format and functions as their R20 software and, if thatís correct, thereís no way itís worth $75.00.
Iíll wait to see what RT Systems comes up with.

I have been waiting to get a case so I was pretty excited to see that it is finally available. I didn't even look at the price of the software before I sent my earlier message. I agree, $75 is very expensive unless it unlocks features not available from the keypad but that is not particularly likely.

Default VS-3 - Bluetooth headset

Anyone using the VS-3 Bluetooth headset with their R-30 ? Is it worth what they are asking for ?

I use $39 Bluetooth headphones that I have had a few years. Works great with R30.

Just stopped at Universal Radio - neither the ICOM R30 Case or Go Bag are released yet. Universal Radio almost always shows new products on their website with a price - before they have initial stock.

Very good
Sorry for the translation ...

As Comet Comes, I have tested several Bluetooth and all works very well, but none of them can be programmed keys for functions; I bought the VS-3 and although it is worth a lot of money, I am very happy to have programmable functions on the keys of the VS-3.

If I can help with some other information, comment it.

regards

Default HRO has accessories

I am a little disappointed that Universal Radio took my order without having the items in stock but for now I am going to let it ride. In the mean time Ham Radio Outlet appears to have a full complement of R30 accessories in stock. https://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-016174

Today I received the case for my R30 from Universal Radio. Apparently they now have accessories in stock.

I spot checked the HRO accessories. None are in stock yet. Look for check boxes at the locations to show when item is in stock .

I called yesterday and no ETA for the cs-r30.

I'm using a pair of Kinivo BTH220 BT headphones that I picked up a couple years ago. Scanning incognito at it's best.

My next purchase for my R30 will be the IC-BP293 AA battery case when it becomes available.
