Icom Unveils New FR5300 Repeater with Simulcast

KIRKLAND, Wash. (July 2020) – introduces a new addition to our robust series of professional VHF/UHF repeaters: The FR5300 Series. The FR5300 Series creates a flexible platform that supports all system type configurations including analog FM, IDAS™ digital, IP network connectivity, and is scalable to IDAS linking, IDAS voting, IDAS trunking (single-site and multi-site) and IDAS simulcast conventional. Add the UC-FR5300 plus the proper CF card to enable the functions needed.

Features of this new and powerful repeater include: a completely new CPU/FPGA platform, 50 W* output at high duty cycle operation, multiple tone-groups using CTCSS, DTCS and digital RAN, ±0.1 ppm high frequency stability with 1 pps signal. The repeater has a 32-channel capacity with five programmable buttons, and a receiver voting function that improves the talkback capability of radio terminals in the field. The IP remote maintenance feature makes administration just that much easier. The optional UC-FR5300 controller board is also backwards-compatible with the FR5000; the FR5300 can also operate on an existing network with other FR5000 repeaters, so no need to replace older models.
