Further details of Icom IC-R6 Handheld Communications Radio Receiver
• 100kHz–1309.995MHz* wideband coverage. While the IC-R6 receives an ultra wideband frequency range, the radio provides superior sensitivity and receiver characteristics that is insusceptible to interference. Amateur stations, AM, FM, short wave broadcasts, TV audio* and a variety of utility communications can be caught and listened to. * Frequency range depends on version. Analog TV audio only. Cannot decode digital TV audio.
• 100 channels per second high speed scan. The IC-R6 has 100 channels per second high speed scan capability*. This superior scanning power allows the utmost efficiency when searching over 1300MHz of spectrum! * VFO mode scanning.
• Scanning modes: full scan, band scan, programmed scan, auto memory write scan, memory scan, priority scan, bank scan, skip scan, tone scan, link scan
• The IC-R6 uses a BTL (bridge-tied load) amplifier that doubles the audio output. The 36mm large speaker delivers 150mW* of loud audio for noisy environments.
• 15 hours of continuous receive capability* The IC-R6 is energy-efficient, designed to provide many hours of listening enjoyment on a single charge. With the sfupplied rechargeable Ni-MH cells (1400mAh ×2), the IC-R6 provides up to 15 hours of continuous receive capability*. * At 50mW output using external speaker.
• 1300 memory channels with 22 memory banks. With 1300 alphanumeric memory channels, 50 scan edges and 200 auto write memories, the IC-R6 gives you flexible scanning. Use the bank link scan feature to choose from and connect any of the 22 memory banks.
• VSC (Voice Squelch Control). The VSC opens the squelch only when a modulated signal is detected and ignores unmodulated beat noise. It is a handy feature for those listeners who are scanning for talk, news and music, but not data bursts or beacons.
• Multiple power choices. The IC-R6 can be powered by rechargeable Ni-MH cells, or with alkaline batteries. Run the IC-R6 using the AC adapter, BC-196S, or opt for a cigarette lighter cable, CP-18. When used the optional drop-in charger stand BC-194 with the AC adapter or cigarette lighter cable, you can easily start charging the Ni-MH cells, while eliminating the need to connect the power source to the DC power jack of the receiver.
