Icom Taking it to the Extreme - Rugged Radios for Rugged Terrain
A South American resort implements an Icom repeater and radios for their HeliSkiing operation. Radios featured include the IC-4001,
IC-F50 and the IC-F5021.
Simple operation for instant communication
The IC-F3001 series is so easy to use there's no special training required. The few knobs
and buttons are generously sized for easy operation and are designed to provide non-slip,
positive action — even while wearing gloves.
Easy to hear in noisy areas
The built-in bridge-tied load (BTL) amplifier offers powerful 800mW*
audio output from the large 45mm speaker. The radio delivers loud and intelligible audio even in noisy
Typical with internal speaker
Longer operating time
A new high efficiency FET of the IC-F3001 series reduces consumption current and provides 20 hours*
of operating time with the BP-265, 2000mAh battery pack. Even when used with the BP-264, the radio offers 14*
hours of operating time.
* Tx:Rx:Standbye=5:5:90. Power save function ON.
Weather resistant, dust protection, military rugged
While the radio is a compact unit with a height of only 111mm (43⁄8 inch),
the radio is tested to dust protection and water resistant equivalent to IP54 and 11 categories of MIL-STD-810
environmental test. In short, the IC-F3001 series is built rugged!
Internal VOX capability for hands-free operation
The radio has the internal VOX capability for hands-free operation. Optional compatible headset with
plug adapter cable OPC-2004 can be used with the radio. Also, the VOX gain and VOX delay time are adjustable.
Selective calling, quiet stand-by and more
2-Tone and 5-Tone signalings give you selective calling, quiet stand-by and other convenient functions with
programming. The radio "stun" function disables a radio over the air and the "revive" function restores the
The priority scan allows you to monitor one or two priority channels while scanning other non-priority
channels. The Tx channel and talk back functions allow you to make a quick response while scanning.
