The IC-F51V is an analogue two way radio from Icom. Although a compact radio, the F51V is rugged and reliable being able to stand up to some of the toughest working environments. IP67 protection means that the IC-F51V has full ingress to dust, whilst also being waterproof protected up to 1m of water for 30 minutes.

Home to many functions, the IC-F51V is ideal for a variety of different working environments. VOX voice activation is a possibility with headsets available to make use of this function, allowing for hands free use of the radio. A Lone worker function is also pre-programmed into the IC-F51V, monitoring inactivity, should the radio be inactive for a pre-set period of time an alarm will be sent out to other radios within the fleet.

A 1700mAh Li-Ion battery is supplied as standard with the IC-F51V. Multiple signalling types are also available for use with this radio including 2-tone, 5-tone, BIIS, CTCSS and DTCS. With 128 programmable channels, an 8 minute voice recorder and vibrate alert function, the IC-F51V has an amass of features available for use by operatives.

Features Explained

Lone Worker Feature

Lone Worker is a feature found on many two way radios where it's able to send a pre-determined signal, for example a distress call or alarm, to other radios in range, Lone Worker requires some type of interaction from the radio user after a period of radio inactivity. An example of this is the radio can be set to require the radio operator to interact with his or her radio once every 30 minutes. If they fail to do so, their radio will start making an audible sound. If there is still no interaction with his or her radio within 1 further minute, a alarm will sound to other team members to tell them a team member is not responding to Lone Worker. The supervisor can then dispatch another team member to the non-reponsive team member's last known location to offer assistance.

 Lone Worker is a software upgrade to the Icom IC-F51V.

Digital Basic Privacy

Basic Privacy uses a fixed "key" which is set when the radio is programmed, of which there are 255 possible "keys". Whilst this level of privacy is technically basic encryption, it's nevertheless relatively insecure. Comparable to analogue 'inversion' scrambling, it will prevent the 'casual' listener from hearing anything, but does not guarantee against eavesdropping.

 Basic Digital Privacy is built-in to the Icom IC-F51V

Channel Scanning

Channel scanning enables the user to monitor a number of channels and respond when a transmission comes through. The scan feature can usually be programmed to include or exclude channels from the scan. Scanning fewer channels makes the scan faster.

A common example is when there is a private channel and community channel programmed. This is usually the case for a shop which is a member of the local business crime reduction (or shop-watch / pub-watch) scheme. The radio would "scan", or alternate between, both channels. Normally, they might only use channel 1 for their own private use within the organisation. But when a transmission (or call) comes through on the local business crime reduction (or shop-watch) scheme channel becomes active. Then within a few seconds the radio would revert back to it's original channel 1.

Digital hybrid radios can usually scan either or both digital and analogue channels simultaneously. This allows for an extremely flexible scan facility where the user can monitor many channels across both analogue and digital modes.

 Channel Scanning is built-in to the Icom IC-F51V

Voice Activation (VOX)

Voice activation, commonly refered to as VOX, allows the user to initiate the radio to transmit, simply by using their voice. Some radios only allow VOX capability via an external audio accessory such as an earpiece or headset which is VOX-enabled or has a VOX button.

Activating Voice Activation or VOX

There are two possible ways of enabling voice activation (VOX). The first is that we can program a VOX-enable / VOX disable button on the radio. The other option is that we supply an audio accessory, an earpiece or headset, that has a VOX button. Contact us for more information about this.

Programming May Be Required

There may be programming required to activate VOX on your radio. In any event, please talk to our knowledgeable staff and we will be able to offer advice on VOX activation.

 Voice Activation (VOX) is built-in to the Icom IC-F51V, but a VOX-enabled audio accessory, such as an earpiece or headset, may be required.
