Superior water protection, compact and full of features, made for the most demanding environments, that sums up the ICOM IC-F50V / IC-F60V radio. This little twoway radio packs a punch. At approximately 3.85 inches high, 1.5 inches deep, and 2.25 inches wide, you'll almost think you're carrying a cell phone. That is until you drop it in water and realize it just keeps on working! The IC-F50V / IC-F60V can withstand submersion in 1m depth of water for up to 30 minutes, and has dust-tight construction to prevent dust intrusion (rating of IP67). Simply put, it's one of the toughest waterproof radios around.
The ICOM IC-F50V / F60V two-way radio is so full of features it's no wonder this radio has become such a popular item. The built-in amplifier delivers 700mW of audio output, significantly louder than most other 2-way radios, making it ideal for noisy work locations. The built-in audio compander provides clear crisp communications. There is a built-in Voice Scrambler, and it has a Power On Password for added security. And did we mention there is a model that can vibrate and record voice messages! When a pre-programmed code (either 2 or 5-tone ), or call is received while in MDC mode, the radio vibrates powerfully enough to be felt through heavy clothing, and the voice recorder automatically starts recording the incoming message. You'll never miss an important call again. You can also manually record incoming calls, as well as your own message.
There is a Lone Worker function. When the radio is not operated for preset period it sounds a beep and requires the user to respond by pushing any key. If a key is not pushed an emergency signal automatically transmits to inform either your co-workers or dispatcher that something may have happened.
The ICOM IC-F50V / F60V two-way radio includes the most popular signaling capabilities. Use the built-in CTCSS, DTCS, 2-Tone, 5-Tone and MDC signaling capabilities to set up your talk groups or selective calling. There are 8 DTMF Autodial memories. The IC-F50V / F60V can decode ten 2-Tone codes, or eight 5-Tone codes, on a channel. When a matched tone is received, the following actions are programmable for each code • Bell icon • Answer back call • Beep sound • Auto transmit • Radio Stun/Kill/Revive • Voice recorder • Vibration alert. The IC-F50V / F60V also supports MDC 1200, and several BIIS 1200 selective calling and data features.
The IC-F50V / IC-F60V has enhanced scanning capabilities. In the Mode Dependent setting, when you change the channel the scan list automatically changes to the scan list set for that channel. The Talk Back function allows you to quickly respond to calls. The Nuisance Delete function temporarily deletes a channel from the scan list. Back-light at Scan Stop automatically turns on the LCD back-light when the scan stops.
