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.
