IDAS digital mode operation

The IC-F3101D series provides basic operation in NXDN CAI-based IDAS digital mode. It is also compatible with IDAS multi-site conventional and IDAS single-site trunking. The following IDAS features are programmable.

  • PTT ID (TX)
  • Block decode
  • Radio check (RX)
  • Call alert (RX)
  • Emergency (TX)
  • GPS (TX only with HM-171GP)
  • Individual/Group call (TX)
  • RAN (Radio Access Number)
  • Stun/kill/revive (RX)
  • Remote monitor (RX)
  • Digital voice scrambler

Built-in 2-tone and 5-tone (analog mode)

2-Tone and 5-tone signalings give you selective calling, quiet stand-by and other convenient functions. The radio stun and kill functions disable a radio over the air and the revive function restores the stunned radio.

Scan features

The priority scan allows you to monitor one or two priority channels while scanning other non-priority channels. The transmit channel and talk back functions allow you to make a quick response while scanning.

The IC-F3101D: a multitude of advantages because it’s IDAS

Advantage 1: Individual/group call

This is a simple and basic setting for those who use the radio mainly for individual and group call. Use the 16-position rotary channel knob to select the appropriate individual or group call. This setting also can be used with analog 2-tone or 5-tone signaling.

Advantage 2: Digital/analog mixed mode

The IC-F3101D series can receive both analog and digital mode signals on a single channel and automatically selects the received mode to reply to the received call, while the talk back timer remains. It\’s a smart way to grow into digital radio at your won pace, as your budget and comfort allow.

Advantage 3: Perfect group communication tool, large or small

Mix the basic IC-F3101D series with the advanced IC-F3161D series for efficient group managed systems. Commands like radio stun, kill and revive as well as the caller ID of the IC-F3101D displayed on the administrator\’s radio provide efficient communication within the group.

Advantage 4: Multi-site conventional mode

When using the IC-F3101D series in IDAS multi-site conventional mode, the IC-F3101D can communicate with other IDAS radio users working with other repeater sites and/or virtual radio/PC dispatch stations on the IDAS network.

Advantage 5: GPS capability

When used with the optional GPS speaker-microphone, HM-171GP, GPS position data can be sent to other advanced IDAS radios (PC and software required) and/or virtual radio/PC dispatch stations.

IDAS single-site trunking

The IC-F301D series can be used in an IDAS single-site trunking system. The IDAS trunking system is a distributed system (similar to the analog LTR trunking) with no control channel, so more voice traffic channels are available for increased system capacity.

*All advantages shown represent possible system configurations. Ask your Icom dealer to configure an IDAS system that works best for you. Note: Private IP Network or VPN Tunnels through the Internet with static endpoints.
