Easy to Use
This simple to use radio is ideal for high turnover environments and shift work where the radio is constantly passed from person to person.
Ultra Powerful Audio
Icom custom high power handling capacity speaker for 1500 mW powerful audio. Hear calls destined for you in all sorts of environments.
16-position rotary channel knob can be programmed with operating channels and group code.
The radio announces the channel number, when you rotate it.
The Call-Ring function can be used to call receivers with a ringer tone. Ten different ring patterns can be selected.
The Smart-Ring function checks whether the receiver is in communication range with a ringer sound.
The built-in inversion voice scrambler provides private conversation. Up to 16 codes are selectable.
21 Hours Operation
The supplied Li-Ion battery pack, BP-279, provides up to 21 hours of operating time.
The supplied rapid charger BC-213 charges the BP-279 in 2.5 hours.
The user programmable CTCSS and DTCS codes can be used for group call. You will only send a call to specified group members using the same tone and same channel.

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|
