VHF/UHF FM TRANSCEIVER
High Power Dual Bander
with Wideband Receiver
Powerful 55W/50W output power
Improved Dynamic Memory Scan (DMS) system
Individual MOS-FET power amplifier modules supply the power for
Icom’s most powerful dual band mobile with 55W/50W (VHF/UHF).
Stable power for long distance communications plus reduced power settings (15/5W) for local communications.
The improved DMS system allows you to scan all the selected
banks you want to scan by simply adding/deleting bank links with
Icom’s exclusive Bank Link system. Yet another convenient feature
to make the IC-208H more practical radio.
Wideband receiver
User friendly design
See why Icom has a world renowned reputation for superb wideband receivers with the IC-208H. The IC-208H wideband receiver
covers 118–173, 230–549 and 810–999MHz* as standard. Listen
to your Amateur VHF/UHF bands, as well as aviation, marine,
weather and other utility communications in a compact mobile package. Extends your mobile radio enjoyment! * Excluding Cellular range.
The large multi-function tuning knob provides intuitive channel tuning or band hopping. The multicolor display lighting and backlit buttons adds a new ‘fun’ dimension to operating the IC-208H.
Detachable front panel
Limited installation space is no problem with the IC-208H. The separation cable, OPC-600/R, is supplied with the radio allowing the
compact remote control head* to be installed almost anywhere.
* 111 (W) × 40 (H) × 26.3 (D) mm;
43⁄8 × 19⁄16 × 11⁄32 in.
500 alphanumeric memory channels
With this much memory, you can fill your IC-208H with your favorite
frequencies and operation settings such as output power, tone, and
more! Then name each memory channel with up to 6 characters
for quick channel identification.
HM-133, remote control microphone
The supplied HM-133 remote control microphone
allows you to control almost every function of the
IC-208H from the mic.
