The IC-FR5100 is a VHF digital repeater from Icom. Compatible with both dPMR and NXDN, the FR5100 is capable of digital/analogue mixed mode operation, whilst having a high-powered amplifier providing a 100% duty cycle operation at 25W output. A 2U height low profile design allows for the easy mounting within an industry standard 19” rack, coming alongside both the rack mount bracket and handles.
A channel capacity of 32 allows for sufficient use within a larger scaled organization, helping to increase range of communications between a team. The IC-FR5100 can detect multiple CTCSS and DTCS on a single channel (16 Tones Per Table), which then transmits the received signal with a specified tone, a useful function for sharing a channel with multiple groups within a communications network.
The IC-FR5100 has a 12-digit dot-matrix display, whilst also having 5 programmable buttons allowing for the repeater to be used as a base station. The FR5100 has multiple built-in features such as an audio compander, whilst also having an optional extra of a voice scrambler alongside the already present inversion type voice scrambler. The IC-FR5100 is compatible with the IDAS IC-F3162 and the IC-5062D, whilst the UHF version of this repeater is the FR6100.
