Icom introduces the new IC-2300H, 144MHz mobile transceiver.
The IC-2300H is the update model of the popular IC-2200H.
The IC-2300H retains the same basic features from the IC-2200H; powerful 65W output power, simple-to-use user interface, built-in CTCSS and DTCS encoder/decoder, etc. While keeping those basic features, the IC-2300H is packed in to a smaller body (in depth) than the IC-2200H.
So Many Features
*Stable 65W of output
*Similar user interface retained from the IC-2200H
*Proven durability – Tested to the latest MIL-STD-810 G Specifications
*207 Alpha-Numeric memory channels
*Built-in CTCSS and DTCS encoder/decoder
Stable 65W of output power
The IC-2300H can generate 65W of output power. The rugged aluminum diecast chassis provides effective heat dissipation and keeps RF output even during high duty cycle continuous transmission. Output power is selectable in 4-steps (65/25/10/5W).
Simple operation retained from the 2200H
The IC-2300H retains the basic panel layout and its user interface from the IC-2200H. Current IC-2200H users will be comfortably familiar with the IC-2300H operation. The bottom of the display indicates the available functions of the front panel buttons directly below the display.
Selectable LCD backlight color
The IC-2300H has a 70.6×20 mm LCD display with 6 large alphanumeric characters offering a good viewing angle suitable for mobile operation.
The backlight color of the display is selectable from amber and green for your visual enjoyment.
A total of 207 memory channels
The IC-2300H has a total of 207 memory channels, including 200 regular channels, 6 scan edges and 1 call channel. The channel name is programmable with 6 characters for easy recognition.
Built-in CTCSS and DTCS encoder/decoder
The CTCSS and DTCS tones are built-in for quiet stand-by and repeater access. The tone scan function detects the sub-audible tone that is used for repeater access. The pocket beep function gives you an audible and visual indicator of an incoming call.
Tested to the MIL-STD 810 G specifications
The IC-2300H is built tough to protect from a rough road. It has been tested to and has passed the latest MIL-STD 810 G specifications including shock, vibration and temperature tests.
Multiple scan functions
*Bank link scan (DMS)
*Power supply voltage display
*4.5W (typical) loud audio
*Reduced depth dimensions
*Automatic power off
*Wide/narrow channel setting
*Volume up/down function added to the remote control microphone, HM-133V
*Weather channel receive and weather alert function
*Automatic repeater function
*Selectable squelch delay from short and long
*Squelch attenuator reduces suppression from string signals
*PC to transceiver cloning and transceiver to transceiver cloning capability
