IDAS™ Digital Mode Operation

The IC-F3230D series provides NXDN™ CAI-based IDAS digital mode operation. It is compatible with IDAS multi-site and single-site trunking and IDAS multi-site conventional.

IP67 Waterproof and Dust-Tight Protection

The IC-F3230D series provides outstanding protection against water and dust equivalent to IP67. The IC-F3230D series can withstand 1m depth of water for 30 minutes and its dust-tight construction prevents the ingress of powder dust, sand, mud and other objects.

Easy to Hear in Noisy Areas

The built-in bridge-tied load (BTL) amplifier delivers a powerful 1000mW* audio output from the large speaker. In addition, the digital modulation provides distinct clarity even at the fringes of the communication range.

* Typical with internal speaker

Channel Announcement

When you change the operating channel, the radio announces the channel number. Convenient for making radio adjustments without having to look at the radio.

8-Character LCD

An 8-character alphanumeric LCD with user-friendly icons shows a variety of information and operating status such as caller's name, received message, etc.

Roaming Scan

In the multi-site trunking mode, if the signal condition worsens as the radio user moves, the roaming scan automatically finds a new site to retain the communication link and quality.
