The IC-F16/S series shows Icom’s new direction in LMR radio design. Simple operation for everyone but a powerful and reliable tool for your daily business. Its very durable construction is resistant to shock and vibration. The dual rail guide design securely locks the battery pack to the radio. Wide range frequency coverage, Li-Ion battery pack, loud and clear audio, built-in signaling and option unit connector combined with Icom grade electrical performance, the IC-F16/S series will easily exceed your expectations.
Tough and reliable construction
The IC-F16/S series is built around an aluminum die-cast chassis and covered with tough polycarbonate casing. This radio is built to last. Its dual slide rail securely locks the battery to the radio. The battery terminal is covered with a noncorrosive rubber packing. The belt clip is clamped between the radio and the battery, making it nearly impossible to knock loose.
Having only 3 buttons, volume and channel knobs, the IC-F16/S series does not require special training to use. Positive button action for sure operation even when wearing gloves, allows you to get down to the business of communicating without fuss.
Wide frequency coverage
The IC-F16/S series covers a wide frequency range with one version (136–174, 400–470MHz). Wide and narrow channel spacing (25, 12.5kHz) is programmable per channel.
Long use even in extreme cold
Supplied 2300mAh (typ.) Li-Ion battery pack, BP-232H has superior electrochemical characteristics even in extremely cold areas (0˚C to –30˚C). It provides stable output for longer while having less voltage reduction at low temperatures.
The IC-F16/S series has an expansion socket for adding an optional board. Voice scrambler, man down and DTMF decoder features are available, depending on the installed board.
