MhZ Version


Two Channels in One Box Repeater, Compatible with Affordable Digital Simulcast!

Warranty: 2 Years


Completely New CPU/FPGA Platform
The IC-FR5300 series is the second generation IDAS™ Repeater, keeping system compatibility with the original IC-FR5000 series and continuing its unique package. It looks the same as the IC-FR5000, but a new CPU/FPGA platform is used. The IC-FR5300 series provides digital simulcast system capability and ±0.1 ppm high-frequency stability with a 1 pps reference signal from the GNSS antenna.

System Scalability
The IC-FR5300 series can be easily upgraded by installing an optional UC-FR5300 Network/controller board and software provided with a CF card. Depending on the communication density and coverage, your radio system can grow from a single site to a simulcast system or multi-site trunking* system, to match your communication needs.
* Compatible IDAS radio terminals are required for multi-site trunking.

System Optional Network/Controller Board

  • Simulcast Conventional UC-FR5300 #14 (Supplied with a CF-FR5300SC) and UX-241 GNSS antenna
  • Multi-site Conventional UC-FR5300 #12 (Supplied with a CF-FR5000MC)
  • Single site Trunking UC-FR5300 #11
  • Multi-site Trunking UC-FR5300 #13 (Supplied with a CF-FR5000MT)

D-SUB 25-Pin Accessory Connector
The IC-FR5300 series has a programmable D-SUB 25-pin accessory connector for connecting external remote control devices. Also, modulation/demodulation signals can be input/output from the D-SUB connector.

50W Output at 50% Duty Cycle or 25W 100% Duty Cycle Operation*
Employing a high performance power amplifier, the IC-FR5300 series provides a reliable 100% duty cycle operation at 25W output. When operated at the high power setting of 50W, the repeater operates with a 50% duty cycle.

* 25 W output power depending on the repeater version. Ambient temperature: 25°CAmbient temperature: 25°C

50W Output at 100% Duty Cycle or 100W 50% Duty Cycle Operation with Optional Power Amplifier*
When need higher power, the optional UR-PA5000/UR-PA6000 series power amplifier provides 100W output power with a 50% duty cycle and 50W output with a 100% duty cycle. * Ambient temperature: 25°C

Capable of Installing Two RF modules in One Chassis
The IC-FR5300 series has an internal space for installing another RF unit. Two RF modules* can be installed and operated independently. LEDs on the front panel show the status of both channels. * Optional UR-FR5300/UR-FR6300 required.

Digital/Analog Mixed Mode and Multiple Tone-Group Using CTCSS, DTCS Tone and RAN
The IC-FR5300 series can receive both analog and digital modes on a channel, and transmit either mode, depending on the programming. It decodes multiple CTCSS and DTCS as well as digital RAN (Radio Access Number) codes on a per-channel basis (up to 16 tones/codes) and downlinks the received signal with a specified tone/code.

32 Channel Capacity and 5 Programmable Buttons
The 12-digit alphanumeric display, 5 programmable buttons, 32 memory channels, and internal speaker enable you to use the repeater as a simple base station, or to check repeater activity. The LCD shows a variety of text and code information.

IP Remote Maintenance
When the IC-FR5300 series is connected to an IP network through the optional UC-FR5300 network/controller board, PC programming and IP address setting can be made from a remote location. The SNMP traps and Syslog can be sent to your manager for remote monitoring.
