The IC-F29DR is a license free digital radio from Icom. Available with 16 digital channels, the IC-F29DR utilises a 6.25kHz narrow channel spacing, meaning that even in urban areas these digital channels suffer less interference. A simple radio, the IC-F29DR is suitable for a variety of different working environments, should your business be looking for an easy communication method.
IP67 protection means that the IC-F29DR has a full ingress protection against dust, also being protected against water immersion up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. An 800mW audio output is provided from a large 36mm speaker, this means that loud and intelligible audio can be delivered from the IC-F29DR even in extremely noisy environments.
A digital/analogue hybrid, other features that the IC-F29DR holds include a Channel Set Mode, Power ON Scan, Tone Scan (Analogue), Nuisance Delete, LED Light Indicator and Status Call (RX Only). Signalling types of CTCSS, DTCS and Common ID for group call, these codes and ID can be programmed to the 16 position rotary selector for install call capabilities.
Compact, Digital Licence Free Business Radio
The IC-F29DR is available with 16 digital channels and utilises 6.25 kHz narrow channel spacing. Even in urban areas where analogue PMR446 users often experience channel congestion, digital channels offer less interference. The IC-F29DR is ideal for organisations and businesses where the workplace is constantly changing such as construction sites and events.
Digital and Analogue Dual Mode Operation
The IC-F29DR can be used in both digital and analogue mode. This mixed mode operation means that organisations looking to replace older PMR446 radios can do this smoothly over time.
IP67 Waterproofing and Dust-tight Protection
The IC-F29DR can withstand 1m depth of water for 30 minutes. This rugged construction provides dust-tight protection making it suitable for outdoor use or places prone to getting wet.
Outstanding Audio Quality
800mW audio output is provided from the large 36mm speaker meaning the IC-F29DR can deliver loud and intelligible audio, even in extremely noisy environments.
Easy to Use
There are just three main controls…transmit, volume and channel selector. This simple to use radio is ideal for high turnover environments and shift work that require no fuss communications.
CTCSS, DTCS and Common ID for Group Call
Similar to analogue CTCSS and DTCS codes, the digital Common ID also can be used for a group call. These codes and ID can be programmed to the 16 position rotary selector for instant call capability.
Voice Announcement Function
When you rotate the rotary selector, the radio announces selected the channel number and Common ID.
12 types of Ring-tone
The Call-Ring function allows you to call your group members with 12 types of ring tone. When you prearrange any ring tone for an emergency, the ring tone can be used for an emergency alert.
Up to 26 hours of long lasting battery life
The IC-F29DR can last up to a massive 26 hours from one single charge.
Power ON scan
The IC-F29DR can be programmed to scan as soon as it's switched on. This can be useful when the IC-F29DR is required to be in scan mode permanently.
Tone scan (analogue)
The IC-F29DR can be programmed to scan CTCSS tones, this enables the IC-F29DR to communicate with almost any other PMR446 radio.
Nuisance delete (Scan)
When in scan mode, if a channel becomes a nuisance, the user can delete this channel from the scan.
Multi-Colour LED Status Light
The status LED light on the top of the IC-F29DR changes colour to indicate current status.
AMBE+2™ dPMR standard vocoder
AMBE+2™ dPMR standard vocoder is a feature usually found on higher end digital dPMR portables. AMBE+2™ dPMR standard vocoder is included on the IC-F29DR
