A multitude of advantages because it’s IDAS™
This is a simple and basic setting for those who use the radio mainly for individual and group call. Use the 16-position rotary channel knob to select the appropriate individual or group call. This setting also can be used with analog 2-tone or 5-tone signalling.
Digital/analog Mixed Mode
The IC-F3103D series can receive both analog and digital mode signals on a single channel and automatically selects the received mode to reply to the received call, while the talk back timer remains. It’s a smart way to grow into digital radio - at your own pace, as your budget and comfort allow.
Perfect Group Communication Tool
Mix the basic IC-F3103D series with the advanced IC-F3163 series (with UT-126H) for efficient group managed systems. Commands like radio stun, kill and revive as well as the caller ID of the IC-F3103D displayed on the administrator’s radio provide efficient communication within the group.
Multi-site Conventional Mode
When using the IC-F3103D series in IDAS multi-site conventional mode, the ICF3103D can communicate with other IDAS radio users working with other repeater sites and/or virtual radio/PC dispatch stations on the IDAS network.
When used with the optional GPS speakermicrophone, HM-171GP, GPS position data can be sent to other advanced IDAS radios (PC and software required) and/or virtual radio/PC dispatch stations.
IDAS Single-site Trunking
The IC-F3103D series can be used in an IDAS single-site trunking system. The IDAS trunking system is a distributed system (similar to the analog LTR™ trunking) with no control channel, so more voice traffic channels are available for increased system capacity.
