In simple terms Icom radios come in four types:
Vehicle mounted mobile.
Desktop base station.
Repeater base station.
Icom handheld radios are the walkie talkie type of radios you see people carrying around. They are used in constructions sites, security personnel, Schools, Universities and Retail environment. Waterproof ones are very popular. Many have IP67 rating, not just marine radios.
Icom mounted mobile two way radios mount in a vehicle and they use the vehicle’s battery for power. You will notice these radios in taxis, tractors and construction site cranes. They achieve a better range by using an externally mounted antenna on the vehicle.
Desktop base station radios use mains power. They connect to a cable that leads to an externally mounted antenna. The higher the antenna, the better the range. The vehicle mounted mobile radios are often used as a desktop radio in a control centre, such as a security hub in a University or Shopping Centre.
Icom digital repeaters cover areas in your business where a two way radio will not transmit or receive. A repeater receives the transmission of a two way radio and rebroadcasts it further. Think of them as signal boosters. They come in both UHF and VHF frequencies and compliment handheld and mobile radios to improve coverage. They can be used in digital or analogue mode.
