Non-slip, large PTT
The large PTT button is designed to provide non-slip, confident-click, even wearing gloves.
800mW loud audio
The large 45mm speaker delivers up to 800mW* of loud audio! Digital modulation adds distinct clarity to received voices.
*Typical with internal speaker.
When you rotate the channel knob, the radio announces the channel number. Convenient for making radio adjustments without having to look at the radio.
Bright 3-color LED
The bright LED shows the operating status: red for transmit, green for listening, or orange for low battery, etc.
Optional headset with plug adapter cable OPC-2004 provides hands-free operation.
Built military rugged!
Okay to use in the rain! Tested to IP54 and 11 categories of MIL STD-810F environmental tests.
Compact and light weight

IDAS™ digital mode operation
The IC-F3101D series provides basic operation in NXDN™ CAI-based IDAS digital mode. It is also compatible with IDAS multi-site conventional and IDAS single-site trunking. The following IDAS features are programmable.
- PTT ID (TX)
- Block decode
- Radio check (RX)
- Call alert (RX)
- Emergency (TX)
- GPS (TX only with HM-171GP)
- Individual/Group call (TX)
- RAN (Radio Access Number)
- Stun/kill/revive (RX)
- Remote monitor (RX)
- Digital voice scrambler
Built-in 2-tone and 5-tone (analog mode)
2-Tone and 5-tone signalings give you selective calling, quiet stand-by and other convenient functions. The radio stun and kill functions disable a radio over the air and the revive function restores the stunned radio.
The priority scan allows you to monitor one or two priority channels while scanning other non-priority channels. The transmit channel and talk back functions allow you to make a quick response while scanning.
The IC-F3101D: a multitude of advantages because it's IDAS
Advantage 1: Individual/group call
This is a simple and basic setting for those who use the radio mainly for individual and group call. Use the 16-position rotary channel knob to select the appropriate individual or group call. This setting also can be used with analog 2-tone or 5-tone signaling.
Advantage 2: Digital/analog mixed mode
The IC-F3101D series can receive both analog and digital mode signals on a single channel and automatically selects the received mode to reply to the received call, while the talk back timer remains. It's a smart way to grow into digital radio – at your won pace, as your budget and comfort allow.
Advantage 3: Perfect group communication tool, large or small
Mix the basic IC-F3101D series with the advanced IC-F3161D series for efficient group managed systems. Commands like radio stun, kill and revive as well as the caller ID of the IC-F3101D displayed on the administrator's radio provide efficient communication within the group.
Advantage 4: Multi-site conventional mode
When using the IC-F3101D series in IDAS multi-site conventional mode, the IC-F3101D can communicate with other IDAS radio users working with other repeater sites and/or virtual radio/PC dispatch stations on the IDAS network.
Advantage 5: GPS capability
When used with the optional GPS speaker-microphone, HM-171GP, GPS position data can be sent to other advanced IDAS radios (PC and software required) and/or virtual radio/PC dispatch stations.
IDAS single-site trunking
The IC-F3101D series can be used in an IDAS single-site trunking system. The IDAS trunking system is a distributed system (similar to the analog LTR™ trunking) with no control channel, so more voice traffic channels are available for increased system capacity.
*All advantages shown represent possible system configurations. Ask your Icom dealer to configure an IDAS system that works best for you. Note: Private IP Network or VPN Tunnels through the Internet with static endpoints.
