Built to Last, Built to Work!

VHF/Rotary type IC-F16
UHF/Rotary type IC-F26

Tough and Reliable Construction

The IC-F16 series is built around an aluminum die-cast chassis and covered with a tough polycarbonate casing. This radio is built to last. Its dual slide rail securely locks the battery to the radio. The belt clip is clamped between the radio and the battery, making it nearly impossible to knock loose.

Simple Operation

Having only 3 buttons, one volume and one channel knob, the IC-F16 series does not require special training to use. Positive button action for sure operation even when wearing gloves allows you to get down to the business of communicating without fuss.

Optional Board

The IC-F16 series has an expansion socket for adding an optional board. Voice scrambler, man down and DTMF decoder features are available, depending on the installed board.

Most Popular Signalings Built-in

Use the built-in 2-Tone, 5-Tone, CTCSS and DTCS capabilities as standard to set up your own talk groups and quiet stand-by when others are talking.

Long Use even in Extreme Cold

Supplied 2300 mAh (typ.) Li-ion battery pack, BP-232H has superior electrochemical characteristics even in extremely cold areas. It provides stable output for longer while having less voltage reduction at low temperatures.
