128 Memory Channels
128 channels (Max.) separated into 8 memory zones. Memory channels can be identified with the 8-character channel name and selected easily with the up/down buttons.
Front Mounted Speaker
4 watts (typ.) front mounted speaker delivers clear and loud audio. With the speaker facing the operator, audio can be clearly heard without impediment during operation.
6 Programmable Buttons
A pair of up/down and P0–P3 function assignable buttons allow you to customize functions to meet specific needs. An independent volume knob offers simple, convenient operation.
MIL Grade Rugged Construction
The tough aluminum die-cast chassis and polycarbonate front panel have been tested to the MIL standard 810F. With this heavy-duty construction, the IC-F5023 series provides reliable operation over the long term in all manners of rugged environments.
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, PTT ID and quiet stand-by when others are talking. The IC-F5023 series has added CTCSS/ DTCS high speed decode and 2- Tone decode accuracy.
MDC 1200 Compatible
The following MDC features are available with the built-in MDC signaling. PTT ID (TX/RX)
- PTT ID (TX/RX)
- Radio check (RX)
- Radio stun (RX)
- Radio revive (RX)
- Emergency TX/RX (No ACK)
- 5 alias table (Max.)
Multiple 2-Tone, Multiple 5-Tone
Up to ten 2-Tone and eight 5-Tone codes can be decoded on a channel. When a matched tone is received, the following items are programmable for each code.
- Beep sound
- Answer back
- Bell icon
- Radio stun/kill/revive
Radio Kill, Stun and Revive
The radio kill/stun functions disable a lost or stolen radio over the air, eliminating security threats from undesired listeners. When the stun command is received, all functions will be temporary locked out until the revive command is received or the unlock password is entered.
Lone Worker Function
When the radio is not operated for a preset period, the radio sounds a beep and requires you to push any button. If the radio is still not operated for a specified wait period, an emergency signal automatically transmits and informs co-workers that something may have happened to the individual worker.
Mode Dependent Scan
In the mode dependent setting, the scanning setting is dependent on the operating channel. When you change the operating channel, the scanning list automatically changes to the list set for that channel. It is convenient when you move to a different operating area and change operating channel, you don’t have to change the scanning setting.
TX Channel Setting and Talk Back Function
The Tx channel setting allows you to program a transmission channel while scanning. Start channel, last detected channel, priority and preprogrammed channel are selectable. Prior to the Tx channel setting, the talk back function allows you to talk on the last detected channel, while scanning resumes after a preset time. The user can easily make a quick response with this function.
Wide Frequency Coverage
The IC-F5023 series covers a wide frequency range in one version (VHF 136– 174MHz, UHF 400–470, 450–520MHz).
Optional Internal Units
The IC-F5023 series has a 40-pin option slot for adding an optional internal unit.
External Memory Channel Control with Optional ACC Cable
With the optional OPC-1939 D-SUB 15- pin ACC cable, the IC-F5023 series can be programmed to control an operating channel from an external device (up to 16 preprogrammed channels). The ACC connector also provides an ignition sensing function, external PTT, PC command, horn honk, audio output and modulated signal input depending on programming.

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|
