BELLEVUE, Wash., 8 April 2012. Icom America in Bellevue, Wash., a portable F3031S series portable mobile radio with military-grade construction, compliance to military specifications, and features for outdoor use. The entry-level radio offers waterproof protection, quick communications access, and is designed to be offered at an affordable price, Icom officials say.
The 5-Watt portable two-way radio meets MIL-STD 810 specifications and offers dependable waterproof protection against inclement weather and outdoor elements. Receiving an IP67 rating against dust and water, the F3031S portable radio withstands water submersion of one-meter for 30 minutes.
A waterproof lithium-ion battery pack runs about 17.5 hours and has been designed for extremely cold environments. Dust-tight construction keeps out powder dust, sand, mud, and other debris. The radio is designed for land-mobile applications such as landscaping, agriculture and facilities management.
The F3031S portable features 128 memory channels with eight zones and an eight-character alphanumeric LCD. Two-Tone, five-Tone, CTCSS, and DTCS is built-in. Selective calling and ANI features-including push-to-talk (PTT) ID, radio check (RX only) and stun/revive (RX only)-are programmable with built-in MDC 1200 signaling.
Emergency transmission is accessible using a red button on the radio's top panel. The man-down function, with optional UT-124R unit required, automatically sends an emergency signal when the transceiver is left in the horizontal position for a predetermined amount of time. Similar to the man down function, the lone worker function alerts a coworker or dispatcher if the radio has not been operated for a set duration.
