Unique Two-in-One Repeaters

VHF IDAS DIGITAL IC-FR5000(50W)
UHF IDAS DIGITAL IC-FR6000(50W)

Two RF Modules in One Unit

The IC-FR5000/FR6000 series has an internal space for installing an optional RF unit, UR-FR5000 or UR-FR6000. Two RF modules can be installed in a chassis reducing installation space, and increasing channel capacity. They can be programmed and operated independently.

50W Output at 50% Duty Cycle or 25W 100% Duty Cycle Operation*

Employing a high performance power amplifier, the IC-FR5000 series provides a reliable 100% duty cycle operation at 25W output. When operated at the high power setting of 50W, the repeater operates with a 50% duty cycle.

* Ambient temperature: 25°C

50W Output at 100% Duty Cycle or 100W 50% Duty Cycle Operation with Optional Power Amplifier*

When need higher power, the optional UR-PA5000/UR-PA6000 series power amplifier provides 100W output power with a 50% duty cycle and 50W output with 100% duty cycle.

* Ambient temperature: 25°C

19-inch Rack Mount Design, 2U Height Low Profile Design

The IC-FR5000/FR6000 series has a rack mount bracket and handles for installation in an industry standard 19-inch rack.

Multiple CTCSS and DTCS Tone Decode

The IC-FR5000/FR6000 series detects multiple CTCSS and DTCS on a channel (up to 16 tones on a table) and downlinks (transmits) the received signal with a specified tone. This function is useful for sharing a channel with multiple groups.

Base Station Operation

The IC-FR5000/FR6000 series has 5 programmable buttons, 12-digit dot-matrix display and 32 memory channels allowing you to use the repeater as a base station.

Other Features

  • Programmable accessory connector (D-sub 25-pin) for connecting trunking controllers or other external devices
  • 5-Tone and DTMF encoder/decoder
  • CW ID transmitter
  • Normal and priority scan setting
  • Wide frequency coverage
  • Built-in audio compander
  • Built-in inversion type voice scrambler*

    * Inversion type voice scrambler is not compatible with UT-109R/UT-110R voice scrambler.
