Icom IC-R5

The IC-R2 was one of the most successful models in recent years (the MVT-7100 arguably continues to carry that title) however it lacked some features found on other similar models - text descriptions on memory channels and the capability to use an external power source were two. In the IC-R5 Icom have added these features and a few extra ones two.

The IC-R5 has continuous coverage from 150kHz to 1309.995 MHz with 1000 regular memory channels, 200 auto store channels and 25 search banks. You are able to make up your own channel names for all memory channels/search banks and channel recognition is easy ! The IC-R5s LCD display lets you use numbers, letters or a combination of both when naming channels and banks. Icoms exclusive Dynamic Memory Scan (DMS) gives you the flexibility to customise and manage the IC-R5s memory banks the way you want or need.

As with the IC-R2 the IC-R5 requires 2 x AA batteries for internal power however unlike the previous IC-R2 the new IC-R5 can also be powered from an external 12v DC Power Source. The DC jack allows for simultaneous battery charging while operating the radio.

The optional software and cable, IC-R5 programming and cloning are a breeze. Hook your IC-R5 up to a PC and youre ready to program channel names, scan lists, and more.

    Main Features:
  • Wide band receiver: 0.150 - 1310 MHz continuous coverage .
  • Three receive modes: AM, FM and Wide FM
  • 1000 memories for storing favourite channels
  • 25 band edge memories for easy scanning between specified frequencies
  • Tone squelch operation (CTCSS decode): As used on many radio amateur repeaters today
  • Tone squelch scan: Find the tone in use easily
  • Simple operation with optional software for programming
  • Uses just two AA batteries or external 12v DC
  • Power save function including auto shut down to conserve battery life
  • Compact size: 58(W) x 86(H) x 27(D) mm (projections not included)
  • Weight: 170 g
  • PC programmable with CS-R5 software and a suitable interface
