The IC-V80 / IC-V80E it's a military rugged rig offers water resistance and superior protection against dust and dirt (IP54). Compact, rugged and with plenty of power, this ICOM is ideal for basic, on-the-go ham operations. Other available versions: IC-V80-HD with Li-ion battery and rapid charger, IC-V80-Sport with alkaline battery case. The transceiver has a total of 207 memory channels, including regular channels, scan edges and 1 call channel. The channel name is programmable with 5 characters for easy recognition. Built-in CTCSS/DTCS codes provide quiet stand-by and allow you to use tone-access repeaters. The pocket beep alerts you when a matching tone frequency is received. The tone scan detects the subaudible tone that is used for repeater access.
