What is Simulcast and what are the benefits?
Simulcast means not having to switch channels when moving from one repeater area into another. It means being able to use the same frequency pair/same channel in each repeater area. Simulcast Conventional uses one frequency for all subscriber units. The repeater keeps signals strong in overlapping areas, this also eliminates the need for scanning, voting, and roaming. The UC-FR5300 board and CF-FR5300SC card are required to work with simulcast, simulcast only works with other Icom simulcast enabled repeaters.
Duplexers allow bi-directional (transmit TX and receive RX) communication over a single path (i.e. antenna) at the same time. The duplexer isolates the receiver from the transmitter while permitting them to share a common antenna. In other words, the duplexer prevents the receiver and transmitter from "hearing" each other.
The preselector can improve the signal quality of your repeater. The preselector provides additional rejection (or filtering) of unwanted signals, including transmitter signals from overloading the receiver, and internal intermodulation (usually caused when a receiver is being overwhelmed by at least one signal). To add this function to your repeater select option 'Add Preselector' from the drop-down selections above.
CY5300 | CY6300 Trunking Options
Single Site Trunking / Network Controller Module
The Icom CY5300 | FR6300 has an option to add trunking capability. Simply add the Trunking / Network Controller (see drop-down selections above) and you enable single site digital trunking. Installation and programming of this module transforms the repeater from a conventional repeater to a trunking repeater at a single site. This module also is a requirement for remote PC management of the repeater (see 'Remotely Controlling Your Repeater and Dispatching' below for more information). Icom part number UC-FR5000 01 for either UHF or VHF. To add this function to your repeater select option 'Single Site Trunking' from the drop-down selections above.
Single Site Trunking + Multi-Site Conventional + Voting Mode
To further enhance the Icom CY5300 | CY6300 repeater's trunking capabilities, you can add the CF-FR5000 module to allow multi-site conventional operations. For use in either CY5300 VHF, or CY6300 UHF repeaters. This does not prohibit single site trunking, it simply adds the configuration choice to include multi-site conventional. Using the additional software on the CF-FR5000 you can connect your repeater to the internet and allow it to communicate with other repeaters over the internet, each repeater must have the IP Link card installed. With the installation of this card the repeater can also be configured to allow voting. In voting mode, the signal is received at the voting repeater, then transported over IP to the transmitter which compares the incoming RSSI levels and transmits the strongest signal. Requires Trunking / Networking Controller also be installed (UC-FR5000). Icom part numbers are UC-FR5000 + CF-FR5000 02 for either UHF or VHF. To add this function to your repeater select option 'Single Site Trunking + Multi-Site Conventional' from the drop-down selections above.
Multi-Site Trunking Operations + Voting Mode
To enhance the ICOM CY5300 or CY6300 repeater's trunking capabilities you can install the CF-FR5000MT module to allow multi-site IDAS trunking operations. With this repeater module your system can be built out to a 48 site, 30 channels per site trunked system linked via IP networks. Requires Trunking / Networking Controller also be installed (UC-FR5000). Icom part numbers are UC-FR5000 + CF-FR5000MT for either UHF or VHF. To add this function to your repeater select option 'Multi-Site Trunking' from the drop-down selections above.
Increase range in difficult RF environments with Simulcast Conventional. Simulcast Conventional uses one frequency for a for all subscriber units. The one frequency keeps signals strong in overlapping areas, this also eliminates the need for scanning, voting, and roaming. The UC-FR5300 board and CF-FR5300SC card are required to work with simulcast, simulcast only works with other Icom simulcast enabled repeaters.
CY5300 | CY6300 Networking Options
Link Repeaters Over the Internet
Using the 'IP Repeater Link Card' you can connect your CY5300 | CY6300 repeater to the internet and allow it to communicate with other repeaters over the internet, each repeater must have the IP Link card installed. This option requires the Trunking / Network Controller also be installed (UC-FR5000). To add this function to your repeater select option 'Single Site Trunking + Multi-Site Conventional' from the drop-down selections above. Icom part number is CF-FR5000 for VHF or UHF.
Remotely Control Your Repeater and Virtual Dispatcher via PC
The CY5300 | CY6300 repeater can be connected to a LAN or the Internet via Ethernet cable when you add the 'Remote Communicator' option (includes both RC-FS10 + CT-24) . The RC-FS10 Remote Communicator is a software package that creates a virtual radio and dispatcher control panel on a Windows® PC. This allows you to access and communicate with repeaters and radios on your IDAS™ IP Network through your PC. Communication range is vastly extended by the internet connection, eliminating the need for expensive leased lines. Also, when connected to a PC via a LAN or the Internet, you can remotely maintain the repeater configuration from your PC. Up to 8 PC's running the RC-FS10 software can be connected to 1 repeater for traffic monitoring. This software is installed on your PC and requires the Trunking / Network Controller to be installed on your repeater (UC-FR5000 for either VHF or UHF). To order the Remote Communicator click the 'Accessories' tab and add it to your cart as a separate item. Icom part number is RC-FS10.
Connect an Icom Microphone to Your Remote PC
When the CY5300 | CY6300 repeater is connected to the interent and controlled remotely by a PC, you can use the 'ICOM PTT Microphone Adapter' (CT-23) to connect an Icom microphone to your PC. To order the CT-23 click the 'Accessories' tab and add it to your cart as a separate item.
Repeaters take 1-2 weeks to ship depending on configuration and tuning.

This radio is requires an FCC license to operate. We can assist you with getting a license.
|FCC Approval||Part 90 (Business License)|
Radio Programming Options
The following does not apply to FRS, MURS, GMRS, LTE, Satellite, or IP radios.
Most business radios aren't ready to use out-of-the-box. So radio programming is needed to set the frequencies in the radio. For some radios the frequencies can be set through a menu interface. While other radios must be programmed using a PC, radio software, and a cable to connect the radios.
Here are your programming options:
- You can program the radio(s)
- For radios with pre-stored frequencies you can easily program them through the radio's menu interface.
- For PC programmable radios you will need the programming cable(s) and software. In many cases you can purchase this from us.
- We can program your radios
- Email us your Frequencies & Call Sign - the FCC requires dealers to verify your license before we program.
- Please allow 1-2 days for first-time setup of radio programming.
- Match to your Previous Order
- If you've ordered from us before we have your information stored.
- If you don't have a FCC license we can help you apply for one
- These licenses are for businesses, non-profit organizations, local and state government agencies.
- We do all the work! Give us a call at 855-289-2929.
