Submersible, portable land mobile radios

Monday, 22 March, 2004 | Supplied by:

Icom's F50/F60 series of waterproof (submersible), portable land mobile transceivers meets JIS-7 standards (equivalent to the more commonly known IEC IPx7 Ingress Protection Standard), just like many marine VHF handheld radios. This brings waterproof durability to tough work environments and meets the diverse needs of the government, utilities, transportation, and business and industry markets. This is useful for anyone whose communication needs place them indoors and outdoors, as well as first responders for whom tough environments may limit communications in do-or-die situations.

In addition to being fully submersible, this radio features an enhanced body that is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. It is durable, shockproof, lightweight, corrosion resistant and dustproof, making it suitable for a variety of harsh environments, not just those involving water.

For performance and power, users have access to a wide range of tuning steps including 2.5 and 3.125 kHz, on a 'per channel basis', offering spectrum flexibility. The 1700 mAh lithium-ion battery provides 10 hours of operating time. An 8-character, 14-segment alphanumeric LCD offers easily recognisable status and performance information and ease of operation in low-light environments.

Built-in signalling capabilities, including CTCSS, DTCS, 5 Tone SelCall, ANI and voice-scramblers enable secure group communication without compromising the water proof integrity of the radio. Also included as a standard feature is BIIS 1200 data signalling.
