Icom IC-F29SR is a water resistant, licence free, professional military grade two way radio which operates on the PMR446 licence free band.
Compact and Slim
The F29SR is only 18.5 cm tall, 5.4 cm wide and 4cm from front to back even including the belt clip and only 300g in weight, making the F29SR one of the smallest and lightest business two way radios in its class.
The Icom F29SR is built on the same technology as the F1000 VHF and F2000 UHF series and shares the same IP67 waterproof properties. The F29SR is even water resistant for working in moderately wet environments such as outdoors and swimming pools.
Easy to Use
Like the Icom F1000 and F2000, the Icom often F29SR has only 6 controls including the PTT button. As seen in the diagram below, 3 of the 6 buttons are programmable or can be de-programmed if not needed. The simple layout of the F29SR means that it's incredibly easy to use and the few buttons means little chance of confusion.
Loud & Clear Audio
The F29SR has a large 36mm speaker to ensure loud and clear audio. In addition this radio has a high quality microphone for ultimate voice clarity.
Call Ring Feature
Ten different ring patterns can be selected to enable the user to call individual radios. A feature often used by door security staff.
If you need to have a private conversation the user can use one of the 16 codes to scramble the users voice so that no-one else can hear the conversation.
The "smart ring" system checks whether another radio is in communications range using a ringer sound.
21 Hours Operation
The F29SR is supplied with a BP279 Battery Pack which can last up to 21 hours. In addition to that, it's also supplied with a BC213 Charger which can charge the radio in less than 2.5 hours.
