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
The optional VS-3 Bluetooth® headset can wirelessly control the IC-2730A with three programmable buttons and a PTT button. It also provides VOX operation for hands-free communication. (Optional UT-133 Bluetooth® unit must be installed in the IC-2730A.)
Easy-to-See large white backlight LCD
The display size of the IC-2730A is 1.5 times larger its predecessor, the IC-2720H. Frequency display and channel names are larger, and the white backlight 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.

Good analog beginner radio
A decent radio for the beginner, nice big display ,dual vfo ,crossband repeat, just an fyi the screws for mounting the main unit are m4-0.7. A few cons might be as follows: 1. power setting is the same for all channels, (cannot program each memory separate) 2. Can't do split band on the same memory channel ( ex. 144mhz up, 440 down, for satellite ) but you can use both vfo. 3. Does not have a button to switch to reverse on repeaters ( to listen to the uplink frequency) 4. Does not have a nice way to switch between name display and frequency display. But other than that it's still a decent radio.
Another Great Radio
Bought this radio about a week ago, and purchased the programming software as well. For the price, this radio is the best bang for your buck, hands down! Other than D-Star it can complete all functions of the IC-2820. A great addition to this unit is the mic can be plugged into to head or the body of the radio, which opens up a lot more options for mounting in a mobile.
