HF Export Land Mobile Transceiver (Discontinued)

The IC-F8100 HF export land mobile transceiver is designed for long distance communication needs for people working in remote sparsely populated areas, or developing countries/areas where telephone communication is inadequate.

The IC-F8100 has a rugged, enclosed structure to protect it from the intrusion by sand, dust and water. The IC-F8100’s controller can be selectable from three versions to suit multi-way use/installation; controller attached to the RF unit, detached remote controller and remote-controller microphone. The IC-F8100 also provides ALE and Selcall capabilities and an improved user interface allows the operator to make these calls much easier. A new optional Junction Box, AD-119 provides various interfaces with PC, GPS and antenna tuner and has an internal space to install an HF data modem.

Three Different Controller Configurations
Three different controller configurations are available to suit almost any way of use/installation that may be required. For detached controller version (#02) or remote-controller microphone version (#03), a separation cable is required separately. The separation cable length is selectable from 1.9m (6.2ft) to 8m (26.2ft).

(#01) Controller Attached Configuration
Ideal for standard desktop use or quick set-up in a field station.

(#02) Detached Controller Configuration
Stow the RF unit in a place of convenience during in-vehicle installation or where space is at a premium.

(#03) Remote-Controller Microphone Configuration
Increases the user’s ability to operate more features of the radio safely, especially during mobile operation.

ALE (Automatic Link Establishment) Capability
ALE is a system which automatically selects the most suitable channel and establishes a communication link. ALE provides interoperability with other manufactures compliant with MIL-STD-188-141-B (Appendix A) ALE. ALE individual call, net call, sounding and AMD (Automatic message display) are available.

Selcall (Selective Calling) Capability
The IC-F8100 offers CCIR493 based 4-digit/6-digit open selcall and 4-digit/6-digit Icom selcall (F7000 compatible) system. 6-digit open selcall system provides interoperability with other manufactures. Selcall allows you to make selective calling, phone call, message call, position call, status call, emergency call and channel test call.

Fanless, Sealed Compact Body
The IC-F8100 has a fanless, securely sealed body and has been tested to MIL-STD-810-G and IP54 ratings. Also, most of connection cables and connectors employ IP54 sealing.

125W of Powerful RF Output
A full 125W output power at full duty cycle voice mode operation is possible with the fanless design. 25% duty cycle operation (Max. 5 minutes continuous transmission) is possible for data mode. When used with an optional external cooling fan unit, CFU-F8100, the IC-F8100 ensures full duty cycle data and voice mode operations for absolute reliability during long continuous transmit cycles or for operation in hot climates where the radio may be installed in enclosed areas.

Data Communications
When used with an optional Junction Box, AD-119, the AD-119 has an installation space to fit a high speed data modem unit* and allows the operator to connect a PC via RS-232C cable (9-pin). In ideal propagation conditions, data speeds of up to 9600bps are possible for reliable and fast HF e-mail operation.
* Recommended partner option, model name to be announced.

GPS Receiver Connection
When connected an external GPS receiver via the optional Junction Box, the IC-F8100 can send your accurate position information to another station and shows position information, time, altitude and heading of movement with a GPS icon on the display.

USB Remote Control
The IC-F8100 can be controlled by a PC through a USB connection via the AD-119. This function uses the CI-V command to control the IC-F8100.

Clear Talk Function
The clear talk function automatically reduces noise and eliminates the need to be an expert operator at the touch of a button.

User Friendly Operation
Despite the multitude of features, the IC-F8100 is designed for simple, straight forward operation. According to the operating status, the function (P1–P3) buttons change the assigned functions and show the assigned functions at the bottom line of the display.

Mute Functions
The IC-F8100 has 3 types of mute functions, call squelch, S-meter squelch and voice squelch. The call squelch function opens the squelch on when received a selcall or ALE call intended to the station and provides quiet standby while other stations are talking.

Numerous Operating Modes
Multiple operating modes – SSB, AM, CW and DATA* are available to allow the maximum communication potential of the IC-F8100 to be realized.
* HF data modem required.
