Icom IC-F5023 VHF Two-way Radio


The IC-F5023/H series is ideal for small-to-mid sized systems for public safety, large industry to light commercial users. The IC-F5023/H series offers multiple signalling, advanced scanning, improved external channel control capability and wide frequency coverage packed in a compact body. This rugged mobile easily exceeds your expectations with its reliable performance and communication quality.

128 memory channels

  • 128 channels (Max.) separated into 8 memory zones. Memory channels can be identified with the 8-character channel name and selected easily with the up/down buttons.

Front mounted speaker

  • 4 watts (typ.) front mounted speaker delivers clear and loud audio. With the speaker facing the operator, audio can be clearly heard without impediment during operation.

6 programmable buttons

  • A pair of up/down and P0–P3 function assignable buttons allow you to customize functions to meet specific needs. An independent volume knob offers simple, convenient operation.

MIL grade rugged construction

  • The tough aluminium die-cast chassis and polycarbonate front panel have been tested to the MIL standard 810F. With this heavy-duty construction, the IC-F5023/H series provides reliable operation over the long term in all manners of rugged environments.

Most popular signalling built-in

  • Use the built-in 2-Tone, 5-Tone, CTCSS and DTCS capabilities as standard to set up your own talk groups, PTT ID and quiet stand-by when others are talking. The IC-F5023/H series has added CTCSS/ DTCS high speed decode and 2-Tone decode accuracy.

MDC 1200 compatible

  • The following MDC features are available with the built-in MDC signalling:
    • PTT ID (TX/RX)              Radio check (RX)
    • Radio stun (RX) Radio revive (RX)
    • Emergency TX/RX (No ACK)
    • 5 alias table (Max.)

Multiple 2-Tone, Multiple 5-Tone

  • Up to ten 2-Tone and eight 5-Tone codes can be decoded on a channel. When a matched tone is received, the following items are programmable for each code:
    • Beep sound Answer back                 • Scan
    • Bell icon Radio stun/kill/revive

Radio kill, stun and revive

  • The radio kill/stun functions disable a lost or stolen radio over the air, eliminating security threats from undesired listeners. When the stun command is received, all functions will be temporary locked out until the revive command is received or the unlock password is entered.

Lone worker function

  • When the radio is not operated for a pre-set period, the radio sounds a beep and requires you to push any button. If the radio is still not operated for a specified wait period, an emergency signal automatically transmits and informs co-workers that something may have happened to the individual worker.

Mode dependent scan

  • In the mode dependent setting, the scanning setting is dependent on the operating channel. When you change the operating channel, the scanning list automatically changes to the list set for that channel. It is convenient when you move to a different operating area and change operating channel, you don’t have to change the scanning setting.

Tx channel setting and Talk back function

  • The Tx channel setting allows you to program a transmission channel while scanning. Start channel, last detected channel, priority and pre-programmed channel are selectable. Prior to the Tx channel setting, the talk back function allows you to talk on the last detected channel, while scanning resumes after a pre-set time. The user can easily make a quick response with this function.

Wide frequency coverage

  • The IC-F5023/H series covers a wide frequency range in one version (VHF 136–174MHz, UHF 400–470, 450–520MHz).

Optional internal units

  • The IC-F5023/H series has a 40-pin option slot for adding an optional internal unit. Optional voice scrambler units, UT-109R or UT-110R provide secure private conversation. Optional DTMF decoder unit, UT108R offers DTMF decode capability.

External memory channel control with optional ACC cable

  • With the optional OPC-1939 D-SUB 15-pin ACC cable, the IC-F5023/H series can be programmed to control an operating channel from an external device (up to 16 pre-programmed channels). The ACC connector also provides an ignition sensing function, external PTT, PC command, horn honk, audio output and modulated signal input depending on programming.

Other features

  • Wide and narrow channel spacing (25/12.5kHz) is programmable per channel
  • Embedded ESN
  • ±2.5ppm frequency stability
  • Microphone hanger action programmable
  • Optional DTMF microphone (HM-152T)
  • 8 DTMF autodial memories
  • BIIS 1200 PTT ID transmission
  • Power-on password function
  • Nuisance delete function
  • Time-out-timer, Lock-out penalty timer and more
