IP67 Waterproof and Dust-Tight Protection

The IC-F3033T/S series provides outstanding protection against water and dust equivalent to IP67. The IC-F3033T/S series can withstand 1m depth of water for 30 minutes and its dust-tight construction that prevents the ingress of powder dust, sand, mud and other objects.

Longer Operating Time

TThe supplied waterproof Li-Ion battery pack, BP-232WP (7.4V, 2350mAh (typ.)), provides 17.5 hours* of operating time. The battery has been designed for reliability in extremely cold environments.

*Tx:Rx:Standby=5:5:90. Power save function ON.

Selective Calling, Quiet Stand-by and More

The IC-F3033T/S series has built-in 2-Tone, 5-Tone, CTCSS and DTCS signaling capabilities for group communication or selective calling. When a matched 2-Tone/5-Tone is received, the following actions are programmable for each code.

  • Answer back calls
  • Beep sounds
  • Bell icon
  • Radio stun/kill/revive
  • Auto TX
  • Scan

MDC 1200 Compatible

The following selective calling and ANI features are programmable with the built-in MDC signaling.

  • PTT ID
  • Emergency (No ACK transmission)
  • Radio check (RX only)
  • Stun/Revive (RX only)

Emergency Function

A red button on the top panel can be used as an emergency button and can be used to transmit an emergency signal. Man down (optional UT-124R required) and lone worker functions can also be used for the emergency function trigger.

Scan Features

Priority scan allows you to monitor one or two priority channels while scanning other channels. The mode dependent scan automatically changes the scanning list following the operating channel. The Tx channel and talk back functions allow you to make a quick response while scanning.

Internal Option units Available

The IC-F3033T/S series has an internal socket for a variety of option units including voice scrambler, DTMF decoder or man down unit.
