2 Way Radios & Accessories


Three types of controller configurations

Three types of controller confi gurations are available to suit almost any use or installation that may be required.

Controller attached type

Ideal for standard desktop use or quick set-up in a field station

Remote control microphone type*

For even more convenient use of the radio, especially during mobile operation.

Detached controller type*

Stow the RF unit in a convenient place for in-vehicle use or where space is at a premium.
* For the detached controller and remote control microphone types, an optional separation cable is required. (Purchase separately)

ALE (Automatic Link Establishment)

ALE is a system that automatically selects the most suitable channel and establishes a communication link. ALE provides interoperability with other 2G ALE manufactures compliant with the FED-STD-1045A ALE standard. ALE individual call, net call, sounding and AMD (Automatic message display) are available.

Selcall (Selective Calling)

The IC-F8101 provides CCIR493 based 4/6 digit open standards Selcalls, commonly used in HF networks and calls based on the 4/6 digit scheme used in the Icom IC-F7000. Selcall types: selective calling, phone call, message call, position call, status call, emergency call and channel test call. Stun command remotely disables radio operation.

Compact and Durable

IC-F8101 with optional MB-126. The IC-F8101 has a durable, enclosed structure securely sealed from intrusion by all potential elements, and is a visibly compact package. The IC-F8101 and the CFU-F8100 cooling fan unit has been tested to MIL-STD-810-G and IP54 ratings. Also, connection cables and connectors are IP54 water resistant.

125W* of Powerful RF Output

A full 125W* output power at full duty cycle voice mode operation is possible with the fanless design. A 25% duty cycle operation is possible in the data mode (Maximum 5 minutes of continuous transmission). When used with the CFU-F8100 optional external cooling fan unit, the IC-F8101 ensures full duty cycle data and voice mode operations for absolute reliability during long continuous transmit cycles, or for operation in hot climates.
* 100W for Australia versions.

BITE (Built-in Test Equipment) Function

You can check the transceiver’s condition by using the BITE capability. Auto, logic, receiver, and transmitter are selectable.

User Friendly Operation

Function button menus are shown
at the bottom of the display The IC-F8101 is designed for simple, straight forward operation. The Administrator/User access feature limits the functions that can be accessed by the user. The Administrator can enter the operating frequency and assign memory channels from the front panel or the remote control microphone. The following functions can be assigned to the [I], [II], and [III] function buttons: Main menu, Manager menu, Set mode, Selcall address list, RX history, and TX history.

Clear Talk Function

The clear talk function separates signals from noise using the DSP, and gives you clearer audio at the touch of a button.

Mute Functions

The IC-F8101 has 3 types of mute functions: call squelch, S-meter squelch and voice squelch. The call squelch function opens the squelch only when receiving a Selcall or ALE call sent intentionally to this station, and provides quiet standby.

Digital Signal Processor (DSP)

The latest DSP technology improves both the transmitter and receiver performance. The digital IF filter provides flexible filter settings for narrow band signals.

GPS Receiver Connection

When connected to an external GPS receiver*, the IC-F8101 can send current position data to other stations, and show position information, time, elevation and course heading on the display.
* NMEA 0183 Version 3.01 compatible.

Data Communications

The IC-F8101 has the capability to install a RapidM TC4 HF Data Modem Module* internally. This allows you to send and receive HF e-mails using a PC.
* A third party product.

USB Port for PC Connection

The IC-F8101 can be connected to a PC through a USB port for HF e-mail and modulation input.
