DISCONTINUED ICOM ID-51A Anniversary Edition VHF/UHF Handheld Transceiver

Transceiver, HT, 2m/70cm, D-STAR, Analog/Digital, Waterproof, 5W, Li-Ion Batt, 13.8 Vdc,

ICOM ID-51A VHF/UHF Transceivers offer global D-STAR connectivity and so much more! The ICOM ID-51A dual band transceivers have a super-compact body and weigh about 9 ounces with a battery pack and antenna. Carry one with you all the time! Waterproof to one meter for thirty minutes, these ICOM ID-51A VHF/UHF Transceivers are rugged and carry an IPX7 rating!

Multiple scan functions and 1,304 memory channels allow for maximum listening convenience. The ICOM ID-51A transceiver's extended-range receiver lets you listen from 108-174 MHz and 380 MHz to 479 MHz. Dual Watch capability lets you listen to two bands at once, or listen to two frequencies in the same band! The wide range receiver even covers the AM/FM broadcast bands, as well as aircraft and weather bands!

The built-in GPS receiver shows your current position and altitude on the radio's larger 128×104 dot-matrix display and features a position-reporting function in DV (Digital Voice) mode. The GPS will even locate the 20 nearest D-STAR repeaters for you! The GPS log function can also log your position information at regular intervals and stores this information in the onboard micro-SD card for export to your PC.

The D-STAR DV mode has lots of advantages over the analog FM mode: Digitally modulated clear voice; 950 bps data transfer; D-STAR individual calling using your call sign; and access to the world-wide D-STAR repeater network linked via the Internet, just to name a few.

When connected to a PC, most functions of the ID-51A can be remotely controlled from the PC! This is made possible with the exclusive ICOM CS-51 Software supplied with the transceiver. With the ICOM CS-51 software, you can also share radio settings and memory channel information by cloning two ID-51As! Experience the fun of D-STAR communications and the CS-51 Software with ICOM ID-51A VHF/UHF Transceivers!

The ICOM ID-51A VHF/UHF Transceivers are truly the most advanced VHF/UHF handhelds available today! We can't possibly list their entire functionality here, but just look at some of their additional features!
