Icom IC-F8101

Communication can be a difficult challenge when working in a remote area, and the more isolated you are, the tougher it can be. With the Icom IC-F8101 HF Mobile Transceiver, over-the-horizon contacts are a whole lot easier!

The IC-F8101 is designed specifically for long distance radio communications. It operates on HF frequencies from 500kHz to 29.9999MHz and transmits with up to 125W PEP (Peak envelope Power). The ICF8101 supports SSB, AM, CW and Data operating modes and has the latest Digital Signal Processor (DSP) technology for improvement in both transmitter and receiver performance. The Clear Talk function utilizes DSP to separate the noise from signals for clearer audio.


The Icom IC-F8101 has 500 programmable channels, 500 Selcall (Selective Calling and 500 ALE (Automatic Link Establishment) memories. BITE (Built-in Test Equipment Function) allows you to check the condition of the transceiver. It also includes three types of mute functions, TX Power Protection, three programmable keys, a backlit display and multiple display modes. Other features include a PreAmp, Automatic Gain Control (AGC), timeout timer, noise blanker and a built-in self test. It has connections for a GPS receiver so you can send current position data to other stations, a USB port for connecting the radio to a PC, antenna connector and audio accessory connector. The IC-F8101 is FCC Part 90 complaint.

Compact and durable, the IC-F8101 is sealed securely from potentially harmful elements and has been tested to MIL-STD-810-G standards and IP54 ratings for ruggedness. The connection cables and connectors are also IP54 water resistant.

The Icom IC-F8101 comes with an HM-193 microphone, mic hanger kit, mounting bracket, SP-35L external speaker, DC power cable, spare fuses and an owner’s manual.
