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.
Optional VS-3 Bluetooth® Headset
Easy-to-See Large White Backlit LCD
The display size of the IC-2730A is 1.5 times larger than its predecessor, the IC-2720H. Frequency display and channel names are larger, and the white backlit provides higher contrast.
Easy Controller Mounting with the Optional MBF-1
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.
50 watts of output on VHF and UHF
The IC-2730A employs a durable PA module and delivers 50 watts of high power operation on both VHF and UHF bands.
Built-in 50 CTCSS and 104 DTCS tones with Split Tone Function
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.
Controller Attachment to the Main Unit with Optional MBA-4
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.
Optional Active Noise Canceling Microphone
The optional active noise canceling microphone HM-209 can automatically reduce noise in extremely noisy environments and assist in transmitting clear and accurate audio.

Ingress Protection (IP) Code
Ingress Protection (IP) ratings define the level of protection provided by enclosures to prevent the ingress of foreign objects (dust) and liquid into the electrical equipment.
International Standard IEC 60529 outlines an international classification system that describes the sealing characteristics of electrical equipment.
The classification system uses the “IP” code, or “Ingress Protection” code, to define the level of seal.
An IP number contains two numbers (i.e. IP67) in most instances which relate to the level of protection provided by an enclosure or housing.
Either number may be shown as “X” (i.e. IPX6 / IP7X) to indicate the “X” part is not tested.
Degrees of Solid Particle Protection – 1st Digit
|IP6x||No ingress of dust; complete protection against contact. (Dust tight)|
|IP5x||Protected from the amount of dust that would interfere with normal operation. (Dust protected)|
Degrees of Liquid Ingress Protection – 2nd Digit
|IPx8||Protected against continuous immersion in water.
Depth and duration specified by model.
|IPx7||Protected against temporary immersion in water for 1 m (3.3 ft) for 30 minutes|
|IPx6||Protected against water projected by powerful jets from any direction.
100 L per minute by a powerful jets (12.5 mm) for 3 minutes.
|IPx5||Protected against water projected by jets from any direction.
12.5 L per minute by a nozzle (6.3 mm) for 3 minutes.
|IPx4||Protected against water splashed against the equipment from any direction|
