• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Looks like a Motorola phone with a BNC antenna and channel selector knob... Depending on the display and pricing, this could be rather appetising.

Not sure about release date for the IC-R30 yet (only been told early 2017), but apparently the IC-R8600 is due for release in Australia in April 2017. Hopefully the R30 will be available around the same time.

Interesting radio, along with the IC-8600, but no trunking and no DMR AFAIK. Specs list NXDN, P25, and dPMR. Trunking may not be used in most parts of the world, but here in the US, its a major feature of VHF/UHF radio. Anyway, will be interested to see the reviews once they are available.

Icom has never incorporated trunking in their receivers, as far as I know. I doubt they start with this one. DMR would be nice! I just don't expect to see trunking.
