Detailed Information

Icom F1000 is Icom's entry level VHF radio, but absolutely PACKED with features. To summarise, the IC-F1000 features man down feature, lone worker, emergency alarm and voice announcements; all features only previously found on much more expensive radios. On top of that, it's waterproof to IP67 standards; that means you can literally drop it in a swimming pool and it will survive. Lastly, the Icom IC-F1000 radio has 5-tone signalling and scrambler privacy setting which allows almost completely undecipherable audio to ensure maximum security and privacy. Never before has a radio been quite so feature rich for such little money.

Icom IC-F1000 Features

  • IP67 Waterproof and Dust-Tight: This radio can be used safely in high humidity areas including swimming pools. It's also suitable for outdoors in the rain use by security and stewards.
  • 14 Hours Continuous Use: The F1000/F2000 can be used for a maximum of 14 hours* continuously using the supplied battery pack fully charged and in power-save mode.
    * Calculation: * RX : TX : Standby => 5 : 5 : 90.
  • Channel Announcement: When you rotate the channel / rotary selector, the radio verbally announces the channel you've selected. This is so you can change channel when the radio is hidden discreetly and you're using an earpiece or headset.
  • Loud and Clear: The F2000 has a large 36mm front speaker which gives an impressive 800mW of audio power.  The F1000 also has a built in bridged-mono transformer-less BTL amplifier delivering loud and intelligible audio to a radio operator in a noisy environment.
  • Compact, lightweight "handportable" business radio
  • Available in 6 versions to suit business requirements
  • IP67 Waterproof and Dust-tight Protection (1 metre depth for 30 mins)
  • Built-in Motion Sensor (man down feature)
    With a built-in motion sensor, the IC-F1000/F2000 series can detect its position, state of motion and non-motion and can send an emergency signal. The motion function detects if the transceiver is moving or shaking, for example, during a chase. Lone worker and man down functions are programmable.
  • Easy to Hear in a Noisy Environment
    The large 36mm speaker of the transceiver provides clear companded 800 mW audio. The built-in BTL amplifier doubles the audio output power and delivers loud and intelligible voice to a radio operator working in noisy environments.
