Icom IC-F3161S At-A-Glance

 The IC-F3161 is a world-class, high quality, top-of-the-line, professional two way radio with features for the most demanding communication needs.   It can be ordered in an analog version that can later be upgraded to digital.¹ 

 Of course it has all the most popular signaling capabilities that a world-class radio would have: 2-tone, 5-tone, CTCSS, DTCS, and MDC 1200.  This radio also supports BIIS 1200 signaling which allows short status messages and texting to be sent and received.  The 512 memory channel capacity, with 128 zones, allows you to divide and store a variety of channel groupings for versatile and efficient fleet management. Direct input of channel numbers, list numbers, IDs can be made using the keypad.  Frankly there are just too many signaling and channel management features to list here so we have listed them all under the 'Features'  tab for this radio.

The UHF version of this radio (F4161) has been discontinued by Icom.

Icom IC-F3161S Security Features

The IC-F3161 has a number of features with security in mind.   The built-in Inversion Voice Scrambler provides secure conversation, but if that's not enough you can add either a 32 or 1020 code encryption unit.  To protect radios from unauthorized use, there is a Auto Key Lock which can automatically key-lock the radio after a set time period.  With the Clone Read/Write Password function you can set a password of up to 16 characters, protecting the radio from unauthorized use.  The Lone Worker function sounds a beep and requires you to push any button if the radio is not used for a defined period of time.   If a button is not pushed, the radio automatically transmits an emergency signal to alert co-workers or a dispatcher.  When the optional UT-124R Man down unit is installed, the radio will automatically send an emergency signal when the radio has been left in a horizontal position for a defined period of time.

Icom IC-F3161S Enhanced Scanning Features

The IC-F3161 has several scanning features to help users manage communications; • Mode dependent scan • TX channel programmable • Talk Back function • Talk Back timer beep • Nuisance Channel Delete • Monitor Key Action  The Voting Mode feature detects the signal strength level of repeater stations and automatically selects the strongest station, useful for roaming between 2 or more repeater sites. Once you select the Voting Mode to a memory zone, you can easily start voting mode operation by changing the zone setting.

Icom IC-F3161S Conventional Mode or Trunking - LTR™, PassPort & IDAS™

The IC-F3161 is LTR ™ ready right out of the box.  It has built-in support for both conventional and trunking operation in both digital and  analog modes.  Both LTR ™ trunking and conventional channels can be set in the radio.  Group, selective (DTMF), and Phone Call are available in the LTR™ mode.  Conventional operation and Talk-Around are both available by simply pushing a button, even while you are operating in LTR™ mode.  All basic LTR™ features including; Group, Selective, and Phone Call, are available. The keypad version has direct dialing capability.  You may assign operating modes, default talk group for home button, power-ON home or previous group, network roaming, offset frequency by channel, LTR™ polarity by system, home channel and area bit by system.  The radio has an ATB Ring Back (All Trunk Busy) function, when the ATB Ring Back is set to ON, the radio starts searching for a clear repeater, if all repeaters are busy it will continue to search until one is available then it will ring you back and transmit after a clear repeater channel is found. 

The IC-F3161 can be upgraded to support the PassPort™ trunking protocol.  A great addition to your PassPort fleet!  It can be upgraded to either the 2.8 version, or the 4.0 version of Passport.
