Icom America, an industry-leading manufacturer of two-way radio communications, announces the new waterproof F3261D series VHF/UHF portable radio with a built-in global positioning system (GPS), emergency functions, and durable construction. Utilizing 6.25 kHz IDAS™ technology, the F3261D digital portable complies with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) narrowband mandate that takes effect in less than four months on January 1, 2013.

All versions of the F3261D series are IP67 dustproof and waterproof, and come standard with surveillance and emergency features. The lone worker and man down functions both activate emergency signals if the transceiver is not used or left in a horizontal position for a set duration. Select F3261D versions have built-in GPS and a position reporting function that sends current position data to other radios or dispatch stations at regular intervals or a preprogrammed time. Similar to other IDAS™ portables, the F3261D series VHF/UHF portable accepts an optional GPS microphone accessory.

The F3261D meets MIL-STD 810 specifications and protects against powder dust, sand, and other debris. Icom’s new 5W portable can withstand submersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Other features include 800mW loud audio, built-in voice scrambler, 2-Tone/5-Tone and MDC 1200 signalings available.
