IC-F70 / F70

The Smart Migration to an APCO P25 Digital Radio System


Icom provides an intelligent solution for digital migration to an APCO P25 digital radio system from an existing analog system in the IC-F70D/F80D series. Programmable conventional P25 digital and/or FM analog mode per channel, Flash ROM CPU for future upgrades allows you to tailor the system you connect. Moreover, advanced mechanical and analog features such as rugged waterproof construction, built-in multiple signalings and a large capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack satisfy the needs of current analog users. Icom is the smart choice for current – and future – public safety communication needs.

IPX7 waterproof protection

The water removal design from the speaker grill keeps the communication clear, no matter what the elements are. The ICF70/F80 series has waterproof construction that is sealed with waterproof gaskets.
* According to the International Standard IEC60529 (2001). 1m depth for 30 minutes.

Built-in multiple signaling

Use the built-in CTCSS, DTCS, 2-Tone, 5-Tone and BIIS capability to set up your own talk groups and quiet stand-by when others are talking. You can also set up selective calls to individuals or control a repeater.

Multiple 2-Tone, Multiple 5-Tone

Up to 10 2-Tone and 8 5-Tone codes can be decoded on a single memory channel. This is perfect for professionals who require multiple district paging on one channel. When a matched tone is received, the following items are programmable for each code.

  • Bell icon
  • Answer back 
  • Stun
  • Beep sound
  • Auto transmit 
  • Scan

Project 25 (P25) Digital Features

Upgrade to digital option

The IC-F70/F80 series offers you three choices to P25 digital compatibility. Choice one is P25 compliant from the factory. Choice two is a digital hardware radio and you can install the P25 activation software (EX-2785 J01) later. Choice three is analog only radio and you can install the DSP unit, UT-120 and P25 activation software (EX-2785 J01) later.


AES/DES digital encryption activation software

AES and DES are encryption standards required by public safety agencies. The IC-F70D, F80D series provide secure encryption with DES and AES accordingly when activatied with EX-2785 J02 (for DES) and EX-2785 J03 (for AES) activation software.


The IC-F70D, F80D series is APCO Project 25 (P25) compliant. It ensures interoperability with other manufacturer’s P25 digital radios in conventional mode. Program digital and/or analog FM modes per channel. The mixed mode scan allows you to detect and receive both analog FM and P25 digital modes and to transmit either mode depending on programming.

Li-Ion battery pack

The large capacity 1600mAh Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery pack, BP-235 provides a practical 8 hours* of operating time. Li-Ion batteries allow flexible charging and have almost no memory effect.
* Typical operation Tx:Rx: Stand-by=5:5:90

Alphanumeric display

The large high contrast LCD clearly shows a variety of information with a full dot-matrix display. Program the display to show either 1 line with 12 characters or 2 lines with 24 characters. Status icons are displayed at the top and the functions assigned to the P buttons (P0–P3) are shown at the bottom of the display.
The bottom of the LCD shows the assigned functions (see right)

Tactical group function

The tactical group function allows you to copy memory channels to the tactical zone (zone 32) and dynamically regroup memory channels. Using the optional zone copy cable, memory channels in the tactical zone can be transferred from a master radio to other radios.

Built-in voice scrambler

The IC-F70/F80 series includes a built-in inversion type voice scrambler. When a more secure system is required, the optional voice scrambler unit UT-109 or UT-110 is available.
* These voice scrambler functions are not available in digital mode.

Wide range coverage and large channel capacity

The IC-F70/F80 series covers a wide frequency range in one version. The large capacity of 256 memory channels with 32 memory zones allow you to divide and store a variety of channels from local to wide area network channels.

Radio stun/kill and Power-on password function

The radio stun/kill functions disable a lost or stolen radio over the air, eliminating security threats from undesired listeners. The power-on password prevents unauthorized people turning on the radio.
