The Smart Migration to an APCO P25 Digital Radio System

The F70D series is available in two digital versions. One version is P25 compliant out of the box ensuring interoperability with other manufacturer’s P25 digital radios in conventional mode. Version two is an analog only radio* that is future upgradeable to P25 digital compatibility–grow into digital with Icom.
*Optional UT-120 and EX-2785 J01 required.
IP57 dust-tight and waterproof protection
The F70/F80 series has dust-tight and waterproof protection equivalent to IP57 and is tested to demanding MIL-STD 810 requirements. IP57 waterproof protection means the F70/F80 series can be submerged in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. The F70/F80 series can withstand rugged use even under harsh weather conditions.
Built-in multiple signaling
The 2-Tone, 5-Tone, CTCSS, DTCS and MDC signaling capabilities are built-in for group communication or selective calling.Up to 10 2-Tone and 8 5-Tone codes can be decoded on a single memory channel. This is perfect for professionals who require multiple district paging on one channel. When a matched tone is received, the following items are programmable for each code.
  • Bell icon
  • Answer back
  • Stun
  • Beep sound
  • Auto transmit
  • Scan

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

  • PTT ID/Caller ID
  • Radio check
  • Selective call
  • Call alert
  • Emergency, emergency mic monitoring
  • Emergency man down (with UT-124)
  •  Radio stun/revive
  • 500 Aliases
  • Status/message
  • Call log

Alphanumeric display
The large high contrast LCD clearly shows a variety of information with a full dot-matrix display. Program the display to show either 1 line with 12 characters or 2 lines with 24 characters. Status icons are displayed at the top and the functions assigned to the P buttons (P0P3) are shown at the bottom of the display.
The bottom of the LCD shows the assigned functions (see right)
Li-Ion battery pack
The large capacity 1600mAh Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery pack, BP-235 provides a practical 8 hours* of operating time. Li-Ion batteries allow flexible charging and have almost no memory effect.
* Typical operation Tx:Rx: Stand-by=5:5:90
Tactical group function
The tactical group function allows you to copy memory channels to the tactical zone (zone 32) and dynamically regroup memory channels. Using the optional zone copy cable, memory channels in the tactical zone can be transferred from a master radio to other radios.
Built-in voice scrambler
The IC-F70/F80 series includes a built-in inversion type voice scrambler. When a more secure system is required, the optional voice scrambler unit UT-109 or UT-110 is available.
* These voice scrambler functions are not available in digital mode.
Intrinsically safe version
Intrinsically safe version approved by FM Approvals, is suitable for use in hazardous areas where flammable gasses or liquids are used.
Radio stun/kill and Power-on password function
The radio stun/kill functions disable a lost or stolen radio over the air, eliminating security threats from undesired listeners. The power-on password prevents unauthorized people turning on the radio.
More Features
The FIPS 140-2 validation confirms that the Icom encryption module, Icom AES Encryption, has passed rigorous field tests and provides agencies the independent assurance that the module meets or exceeds the highest performance standards in encryption for its classification. FIPS encryption is a requirement for many federal agencies.Intrinsically Safe (I.S.) refers to electronics equipment in which electrical energy is not present at levels that would spark and ignite an oxidized mixture of flammable gasses, vapors or liquids or combustible dusts or fibers.Icom I.S. two-way radios are approved by Factory Mutual (FM), an international third-party insurance and loss prevention company.
