IP67 Rating

Waterproof & dust-tight protection

Outstanding audio

Even in extremely noisy environments


Compact, Digital Licence Free Business Radio

The IC-F29DR is available with 16 digital channels and utilises 6.25 kHz narrow channel spacing. Even in urban areas where analogue PMR446 users often experience channel congestion, digital channels offer less interference. The IC-F29DR is ideal for organisations and businesses where the workplace is constantly changing such as construction sites and events.

Digital and Analogue Dual Mode Operation

The IC-F29DR can be used in both digital and analogue mode. This mixed mode operation means that organisations looking to replace older PMR446 radios can do this smoothly over time.

IP67 Waterproofing and Dust-tight Protection

The IC-F29DR can withstand 1m depth of water for 30 minutes. This rugged construction provides dust-tight protection making it suitable for outdoor use or places prone to getting wet.

Outstanding Audio Quality

800mW audio output is provided from the large 36mm speaker meaning the IC-F29DR can deliver loud and intelligible audio, even in extremely noisy environments.

Easy to Use

There are just three main controls…transmit, volume and channel selector. This simple to use radio is ideal for high turnover environments and shift work that require no fuss communications.

CTCSS, DTCS and Common ID for Group Call

Similar to analogue CTCSS and DTCS codes, the digital Common ID also can be used for a group call. These codes and ID can be programmed to the 16 position rotary selector for instant call capability.

Voice Announcement Function

When you rotate the rotary selector, the radio announces selected the channel number and Common ID.

12 types of Ringtone
The Call-Ring function allows you to call your group members with 12 types of ring tone. When you prearrange any ring tone for an emergency, the ring tone can be used for an emergency alert.
