Icom IC-R6 HF/VHF/UHF Handheld All-Mode Receiver


The power of listening to the world in the palm of your hand is possible with the compact R6! Whether you are listening to a shortwave station, the local airport approach or ground communications, or simply scanning the various frequency ranges, the R6 offers the most frequency coverage for under $300.


RX Frequencies:

     1300 with 22 memory banks


Wideband Coverage
While the R6 receives an ultra wideband frequency range, the radio provides superior sensitivity and receiver characteristics, which are 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.

Scanning Functions
With 1300 alphanumeric memory channels, 50 scan edges and 200 auto write memories, the R6 gives you flexible scanning. Use the bank link scan feature to choose from and connect any of the 22 memory banks.


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


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 (sold sepatately), or with alkaline batteries. Run the IC-R6 using the optional AC adapter BC-196A/SD (sold separately), or opt for a cigarette lighter cable, CP-18A/E (sold separately). When used with the optional drop-in charger stand BC-194 and 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.
