The Icom F50V-11 combines the reliability of two way communications with pager functionality to bring you a heavy duty two way radio designed for demanding work environments. This 5 watt VHF radio 8-character alphanumeric display is water and dust proof rated at IP-67 requirements and is submersible in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. The IC-F50V is tested to MIL standard specifications with a compact design that has all of the communication features you need in one powerful package.
This top-end model in the F50V Series is loaded with features. 128 channels and 8 memory banks enable you to use a wide variety of channels for flexible, dynamic communications. 700mW audio output with built-in BTL amp, improved bass characteristics and companding combine to provide clear, low noise sound with high quality. CTCSS/DCTS tone filtering allows you interruption free communications. The F50V can also decode ten 2-Tone codes or eight 5-Tone on a channel. With the Mode Dependent scan feature, the scan setting is dependent on the operating channel. When you change operating channels, the scanning list automatically changes to the operating channel settings.
The F50V also has a Lone Worker feature. The radio can be set to send an automatic emergency signal if the emergency button is not pushed after a preset time.
Then there are the high-end pager features. The IC-F50V-11 has a vibration alert function that is second to none! When it receives a pre-programmed 2-Tone or 5-Tone code or call from a user in MDC mode, the F50V vibrates so powerfully it can even be felt through heavy clothing!
Then there is the Voice Recorder. When the F50V-11 receives a pre-programmed 2-Tone or 5-Tone code or SelCall in MDC mode, automatically records the incoming message. The recorder can handle messages up to 8 minutes in length!
With the ability to change antennas, and at 5 watts of power, the IC-F50V has the range and clarity needed for professional radio communications. The F50V is also repeater capable, making it ideal for use in situations where transmission range is a high priority.
The Icom IC-F50V uses Li-Ion or AA alkaline batteries (with optional AA adapter tray), and comes with a large capacity 1700mAh Li-Ion battery pack for an average of 10 hours of operational time. The radio also comes with a belt clip and removable antenna. The IC-F50V is available with your choice of an optional rapid charger, direct trickle charger, or no charger at all.
