Water Resistant, Equivalent To IPX4
The water resistant construction provides reliable operation in wet conditions, so it is safe to take this radio outdoors in any season.

Alphanumeric Display The large, easy-to-see display clearly shows channel name, operating frequency, memory number and so on. An signal-meter icon shows the signal strength of the receiving frequency and output power level while transmitting.

A Total of 107 Memory Channels
The IC-V85 has a total of 107 memory channels, including 100 regular channels, 6 scan edges and 1 call channel. The channel name is programmable with 5 characters for easy recognition.

Dynamic Memory Scan (DMS) System
The Dynamic Memory Scan (DMS) system divides regular memory channels into 10 groups, A to J, and provides easy channel selection. DMS allows you to scan all the selected banks you want to scan by simply adding/deleting bank links with Icom’s exclusive Bank Link system.

CTCSS & DTCS Tone Squelch
The CTCSS and DTCS tones are built-in for quiet stand-by and repeater access. Pocket beep and tone scan are also possible. The tone scan allows the operator to detect the subaudible tone that is used for repeater access.

DTMF & Pager Operation
The IC-V85 has 16 DTMF memory channels for remote controlling a repeater, telephone interconnect etc. Each DTMF memory channel stores up to a 24-digit code. The optional DTMF decoder unit, UT-108 provides pager and code squelch functions.
