2. TOUGHNESS, QUALITY , SIMPLICITY are the few words to describe the all new ICOM V8 VHF hand held 2-way radio system with over 100 channels, including Marine channels.
The green polycarbonate front panel and aluminum die-cast chassis provide high reliability in the toughest conditions. The 54(W)×132(H)×35(D)mm* compact ergonomic body is easy for carrying anywhere.
* 21⁄8 (W) × 53⁄16 (H) × 13⁄8 (D) in.
16 Button Keypad for Easy-to-access Functions:
The function guidance is labeled on the 16 buttons. It’s easy to manage all of the functions equipped on the IC-V8 by pushing the Function key and shortcut keys. In addition, a channel number or an operating frequency can be entered from the keypad directly.
Powerful 5.5W of Output Power:
The V8 Sport comes with a battery pack. It also comes with a case for AA Alkaline batteries.
Reversible Up/Down Switches and Rotary Selector:
Channel selection, volume and squelch functions can be assigned to either the up/down switches or to the rotary selector.
5-character alphanumeric display
Letters and numeral character names provide easy recognition of each channel. S-meter, output power, power save, keylock, tone and duplex setting icons show various operating status at glance.
100 Memory Channels and One Call Channel
Up to 100 of your favorite frequency settings (including channel name, tone, output power and repeater offset) can be stored in the memory. Furthermore, one call channel provides one touch channel access for a frequently used frequency.
CTCSS and DTCS Operation Standard
50 CTCSS and 104×2 DTCS tone squelch operation codes (encode and decode) provide quiet standby and allow you repeater access. A pocket beep alerts you of a call and a tone scan can detect the sub-audible tone in use in the receiving signals.
Standard DTMF Encoder and Optional DTMF Decoder
5 DTMF memory channels with up to 24 DTMF codes allow remote operation. The optional UT-108 DTMF decoder unit provides code squelch operation as well as a pager function.
Set mode and initial set mode menu ensures easy operation
