Icom IC-F2100D, the replacement for the now discontinued IC-F1000D, is Icom's amazing new digital UHF two way radio with an astounding amount of features including man-down, lone worker, has an amazing new 1500mW speaker making it the loudest digital radio in it's class and supports GPS-positioning via the HM-171GPW GPS microphone (sold separately).
UHF ONLY: The Icom IC-F2100D is the UHF only version. If you need the VHF version, see the Icom IC-F1100D.
Ideal Analogue NXDN Digital Migration
The Icom IC-F2100D is an ideal migration two way radio. Since the IC-F2100D works in both analogue and digital modes, the IC-F2100D allows the gradual migration from analogue to NXDN digital.
High Power Super Loud Speaker & Noise Cancelling
The Icom IC-F2100D improves on it's predecessor's speaker. The IC-F2100D had just a 800mW speaker. The IC-F2100D boasts a massive 1500mW speaker. That means the Icom IC-F2100D is by far the loudest radio in it's class.
Icom IC-F2100D has amazing noise-cancelling technology that can detect and reduce background noise. This is ideal for building sites and other places where there is a large amount of background noise.
Waterproof & Military Standard Compliant
The Icom IC-F2100D is built to military standard and is MIL-STD-810-G compliant. IC-F2100D is waterproof and dust resistant and compliant to IP67.
Noise cancelling technology mixed with it's extremely loud speaker and IP67 waterproofing means that the Icom IC-F2100D the ideal radio for outdoor and indoor use.
Slim, Compact & Lightweight
The IC-F1000D has a compact 52.2 x 111.8 x 30.3mm body and weighs just 260g with the heavy duty BP-280 battery pack and belt clip (both supplied and included). The included BP-280 battery allows up to 12 hours of use (5% transmit, 5% receive, 90% standby duty cycle) That means it's extra lightweight. The IC-F2100D can be made even lighter by taking a smaller batter, for example the BP-279. However, this does impact the battery life to as little as 5 hours.
Built-in 2-Tone and 5-Tone (Analogue mode)
The IC-F2100D can also be used in Analogue mode. It has built-in 2-Tone, 5-Tone, CTCSS and DTCS signalling capability for analogue mode group communication and selective calling. The IC-F2100D can be used as an analogue transceiver ready for future digital migration.
Two Way Radio GPS
GPS (global positioning system) is a mechanism which a device can use a number of in-range satellites to trangulate it's position and transmit that position back to the repeater or base station. This enables the supervisor to more effectively manage team members by knowing their current location.

GPS is designed for outdoor tracking. See "Indoor tracking" for indoor solutions.
GPS is a standard feature of the Icom IC-F2100D.
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 built-in to the Icom IC-F2100D.
Man Down provides remote monitoring of workers by detecting if their radio is upright, or if the radio is on it's side assumes there may be a problem. Radios which support Man Down are fitted with an accelerometer (or similar device) which allows them to detect the orientation of the radio. If somebody slips or falls, they are likely to be on their side, Man Down will automatically detect this, activate and transmit an alert to call for help from a supervisor or other team members. This works is almost the same way as your smart phone which knows if you have it positioned portrait mode or landscape mode. See this video below to see how the a works.

The science which allows man-down to work is almost the same way as your smart phone which knows if you have it positioned portrait mode or landscape mode. See this video below to see how the a works.
