IDAS™ Digital Mode Operation

The IC-F3230D series provides NXDN™ CAI-based IDAS digital mode operation. It is compatible with IDAS multi-site and single-site trunking and IDAS multi-site conventional.

IP67 Waterproof and Dust-Tight Protection

The IC-F3230D series provides outstanding protection against water and dust equivalent to IP67. The IC-F3230D series can withstand 1m depth of water for 30 minutes and its dust-tight construction prevents the ingress of powder dust, sand, mud and other objects.

Easy to Hear in Noisy Areas

The built-in bridge-tied load (BTL) amplifier delivers a powerful 1000mW* audio output from the large speaker. In addition, the digital modulation provides distinct clarity even at the fringes of the communication range.
* Typical with internal speaker

Channel Announcement

When you change the operating channel, the radio announces the channel number. Convenient for making radio adjustments without having to look at the radio.

8-character LCD

An 8-character alphanumeric LCD with user-friendly icons shows a variety of information and operating status such as caller's name, received message, etc.

Roaming Scan

In the multi-site trunking mode, if the signal condition worsens as the radio user moves, the roaming scan automatically finds a new site to retain the communication link and quality.

Programming - Radios are programmable and will require programming to work with an existing system. Software and programming cables are not included with the radio and must be purchased separately.

Do I need an FCC License - FCC licenses are required for many business radio frequencies. The biggest advantage to licensing your frequencies is exclusivity. Using common or default frequencies often means dealing with interference from others nearby who are using the same frequencies.  We can help with the FCC application process.
