Built-in CTCSS/DTCS encoder and decoder
Built-in CTCSS and DTCS tones are used for accessing a closed repeater or tone squelch operation. The pocket beep alerts you with a beep sound when the transceiver receives a preset tone. 1750Hz tone is also available.
Optional GPS speaker-microphone, HM-189GPS
When used with the new GPS speaker-microphone, HM-189GPS, the IC-80AD shows your position data on the display and offers a position reporting function in DV mode. The IC-80AD shows the direction to a memory position or to a received D-STAR station.
5 Watts (typical) output
The IC-80AD provides 5W (typical) output power both in VHF/UHF bands. The supplied BP-217 provides up to 6 hours* of operating time. When you don't need full power operation, you can reduce output power to 2.5/0.5/0.1W (typ.) for saving battery consumption
*Tx high: Rx: Stand-by duty ratio= 1 min.: 1min.: 8 min. Power save on.
External DC power jack
An external DC power jack allows for operation with an external DC power supply (10-16VA DC). When used with the DC power cable simultaneously operation during charging is possible.
The 4-direction cursor buttons on the keypad give you quick and intuitive access to many settings.
