Enhance Your D-STAR Experience with iOS™ App
The RS-MS1I (for iOS™ devices) lets your D-STAR transceiver wirelessly connect to a D-STAR transceiver and remotely set the DR functions, link with a map app and send/receive messages in the DV mode. In addition, pictures on an iOS™ device can be transmitted in the DV Fast Data mode or DV mode.
You can take pictures with your iOS™ device, or use stored pictures, and share them. Pictures of your shack, operating place in the field, rigs, or friends can be sent to other D-STAR transceivers that are also using the app.
Add images and make QSOs even more enjoyable.
Pictures can be sent in the DV Fast Data mode or conventional DV mode (with voice).
DR Functions and Remote Setting
You can set the transceiver’s “FROM” and “TO” fields and change some of the transceiver’s function settings from your iOS™ device. When using with the optional VS-3 Bluetooth® headset, you can wirelessly talk through the IC-705 or ID-4100A/E from a short distance* away from your rig.
* Communication range of Bluetooth® is approximately 10 meters (33 feet).
D-STAR Stations and Repeater Sites Mapping
Repeater List Viewer
You can see detailed repeater information, including frequencies, call signs and frequency offsets in the Repeater list.
You can use it to manually set your transceiver when you are in a different area from your usual operating environment.
Call Sign List
The app enables you to edit call signs and names used in the DR function. Also, you can add a call sign and a name in the Call sign list at any time.
In the DV mode, you can read and edit the received station’s information. Additional information from an Internet database, such as QRZ.com or APRS.fi, can be downloaded.
Import and Export
You can import a user-programmable repeater list or a repeater list, on the Internet, from a PC to the app. In addition, receive history can be exported from the app to a PC.

Ingress Protection (IP) Code
Ingress Protection (IP) ratings define the level of protection provided by enclosures to prevent the ingress of foreign objects (dust) and liquid into the electrical equipment.
International Standard IEC 60529 outlines an international classification system that describes the sealing characteristics of electrical equipment.
The classification system uses the “IP” code, or “Ingress Protection” code, to define the level of seal.
An IP number contains two numbers (i.e. IP67) in most instances which relate to the level of protection provided by an enclosure or housing.
Either number may be shown as “X” (i.e. IPX6 / IP7X) to indicate the “X” part is not tested.
Degrees of Solid Particle Protection – 1st Digit
|IP6x||No ingress of dust; complete protection against contact. (Dust tight)|
|IP5x||Protected from the amount of dust that would interfere with normal operation. (Dust protected)|
Degrees of Liquid Ingress Protection – 2nd Digit
|IPx8||Protected against continuous immersion in water.
Depth and duration specified by model.
|IPx7||Protected against temporary immersion in water for 1 m (3.3 ft) for 30 minutes|
|IPx6||Protected against water projected by powerful jets from any direction.
100 L per minute by a powerful jets (12.5 mm) for 3 minutes.
|IPx5||Protected against water projected by jets from any direction.
12.5 L per minute by a nozzle (6.3 mm) for 3 minutes.
|IPx4||Protected against water splashed against the equipment from any direction|
