IMPORTANT NOTES
D When using the GPS receiver
D Spurious signals
• The GPS receiver is installed under the transceiver’s top
panel. Therefore, when the GPS receiver is activated, do
not cover the top with anything that will block the satellite
signals.
• GPS signals cannot pass through metal objects. When
using the transceiver inside a vehicle, you may not receive
GPS signals. We recommend you use it near a window.
• The GPS receiver may not work if used in the following
locations:
When operating in the DV mode, you may hear some noises
around 430.080 MHz. These may be caused by spurious
signals generated in the transceiver’s circuit but they do not
indicate a transceiver malfunction.
1. Tunnels or high-rise buildings
2. Underground parking lots
3. Under a bridge or viaduct
4. In remote forested areas
5. Under bad weather conditions (rainy or cloudy day)
The GPS receiver is
installed here.
• The GPS receiver may not work if the transceiver operates
near the 440.205 MHz. This is due to signals made in
the internal circuit and does not indicate a transceiver
malfunction.
• The Global Positioning System (GPS) is built and operated
by the U.S. Department of Defense. The Department is
responsible for accuracy and maintenance of the system.
Any changes by the Department may affect the accuracy
and function of the GPS system.

RRDANGER! NEVER short the terminals of the battery
pack. Shorting may occur if the terminals touch metal
objects such as a key, so be careful when placing the
battery packs (or the transceiver) in bags, and so on. Carry
them so that shorting cannot occur with metal objects.
Shorting may damage not only the battery pack, but also the
transceiver.
RRDANGER! NEVER operate the transceiver near
unshielded electrical blasting caps or in an explosive
atmosphere. This could cause an explosion and death.
RRDANGER! NEVER use or charge Icom battery packs
with non-Icom transceivers or non-Icom chargers. Only Icom
battery packs are tested and approved for use with Icom
transceivers or charged with Icom chargers. Using thirdparty or counterfeit battery packs or chargers may cause
smoke, fire, or cause the battery to burst.
RRWARNING RF EXPOSURE! This transceiver emits
Radio Frequency (RF) energy. Extreme caution should be
observed when operating this transceiver. If you have any
questions regarding RF exposure and safety standards
please refer to the Federal Communications Commission
Office of Engineering and Technology’s report on Evaluating

body, especially the face or eyes, while transmitting.
RRWARNING! NEVER operate or touch the transceiver with
wet hands. This could cause an electric shock or damage
the transceiver.
RRWARNING! NEVER operate with earphone, headphones
or other audio accessories at high volume levels. If you
experience a ringing in your ears, reduce the volume level
or discontinue use.
RRWARNING! NEVER connect the transceiver to a power
source of more than 16 V DC or use reverse polarity. This
could cause a fire or damage the transceiver.
CAUTION: DO NOT operate the transceiver unless the
flexible antenna, battery pack, and jack cover are securely
attached to the transceiver, and that the antenna and battery
pack are dry before attachment. Exposing the inside of the
transceiver to dust or water will result in serious damage
to the transceiver. After exposure to water, clean the
battery contacts thoroughly with fresh water and dry them
completely to remove any water or salt residue.
CAUTION: DO NOT operate the transceiver while driving a
vehicle. Safe driving requires your full attention—anything
less may result in an accident.
NOTE: When the BP-273 is connected to the transceiver, it
meets IPX4 requirements for splash resistance. When it is
connected, the transceiver corresponds to IPX4.
CAUTION: DO NOT use harsh solvents such as benzine or
alcohol when cleaning. This could damage the equipment
surfaces. If the surface becomes dusty or dirty, wipe it clean
with a soft, dry cloth.
Even when the transceiver power is OFF, a slight current
still flows in the circuits. Remove the battery pack or
batteries from the transceiver when not using it for a long
time. Otherwise, the installed battery pack or batteries
will become exhausted, and will need to be recharged or
replaced.
CAUTION: DO NOT place or leave the transceiver in direct
sunlight or in areas with temperatures below –20°C (–4˚F)
or above +60°C (+140˚F).
CAUTION: DO NOT operate the transceiver if it becomes
hot after continuously transmitting for long periods of time.
This may damage the transceiver.
DO NOT push PTT unless you actually intend to transmit.
BE CAREFUL! The transceiver meets IPX7* requirements
for waterproof protection. However, once the transceiver has
been dropped, waterproof protection cannot be guaranteed
because of possible damage to the transceiver’s case or
waterproof seal.
*O
nly when the BP-271 or BP-272 (option), flexible antenna,
[MIC/SP] cap, [DATA/DC IN] cap, and [micro SD] slot cap are
attached.

BATTERY CAUTIONS
DDBattery caution
Misuse of Li-ion batteries may result in the following
hazards: smoke, fire, or the battery may rupture. Misuse
can also cause damage to the battery or degradation of
batteryʼs performance.
RRDANGER! NEVER strike or otherwise impact the battery
pack. Do not use the battery pack if it has been severely
impacted or dropped, or if the pack has been subjected to
heavy pressure. Battery pack damage may not be visible
on the outside of the case. Even if the surface of the battery
does not show cracks or any other damage, the cells inside
the battery may rupture or catch fire.
RRDANGER! NEVER leave the battery pack in places with
temperatures above 60˚C (140˚F). High temperature buildup
in the battery cells, such as could occur near fires or stoves,
inside a sun-heated vehicle, or in direct sunlight for long
periods of time may cause the battery cells to rupture or
catch fire. Excessive temperatures may also degrade pack’s
performance or shorten the battery cell’s life.
RRDANGER! NEVER expose the battery pack to rain, snow,
seawater, or any other liquids. Do not charge or use a wet
pack. If the pack gets wet, be sure to wipe it dry before using.
xi
RRDANGER! NEVER place or leave battery packs near fire.
Fire or heat may cause them to rupture or explode. Dispose
of used battery packs in accordance with local regulations.
BASIC MANUAL
RRDANGER! NEVER solder the battery terminals, or NEVER
modify the battery pack. This may cause heat generation, and
the battery may burst, emit smoke or catch fire.
RRDANGER! NEVER let fluid from inside the battery get in
your eyes. This can cause blindness. Rinse your eyes with clean
water, without rubbing them, and immediately go to a doctor.
RRWARNING! NEVER use the battery if it emits an abnormal
odor, heats up, or is discolored or deformed. If any of these
conditions occur, contact your Icom dealer or distributor.
RRWARNING! NEVER let fluid from inside the battery cells
come in contact with your body. If it does, immediately wash
with clean water.
RRWARNING! NEVER put the battery pack in a microwave
oven, high-pressure container, or in an induction heating
cooker. This could cause a fire, overheating, or cause the
battery cells to rupture.
RRCAUTION: DO NOT use the battery pack out of the
specified temperature range –20˚C ~ +60˚C (–4˚F ~
+140˚F). Using the pack out of this range will reduce the
pack’s performance and battery cell life.
CAUTION: DO NOT leave the pack fully charged,
completely discharged, or in an excessive temperature
environment (above 50˚C, 122˚F) for an extended period of
time. Otherwise a shorter battery pack life could occur. If the
battery pack must be left unused for a long time, it must be
detached from the transceiver after discharging. You may
use the pack until the remaining capacity is about half, then
keep it safely in a cool dry place in the following temperature
range:
–20˚C (–4˚F) ~ +50˚C (+122˚F) (within a month).
–20˚C (–4˚F) ~ +35˚C (+95˚F) (within three months).
–20˚C (–4˚F) ~ +20˚C (+68˚F) (within a year).
BE SURE to replace the battery pack with a new one
approximately five years after manufacturing, even if it still
holds a charge. The material inside the battery cells will
become weak after a period of time, even with little use.
The estimated number of times you can charge the pack
is between 300 and 500. Even when the pack appears to
be fully charged, the operating time of the transceiver may
become short when:
• Approximately five years have passed since the pack was
manufactured.
• The pack has been repeatedly charged.
DDCharging caution
RRDANGER! NEVER charge the battery pack in areas with
extremely high temperatures, such as near fires or stoves,
inside a sun-heated vehicle, or in direct sunlight. In such
environments, the safety/protection circuit in the pack will
activate and stop the charging.
RRDANGER! NEVER charge the transceiver during a
lightning storm. It may result in an electric shock, cause a
fire or damage the transceiver. Always disconnect the power
adapter before a storm.
RRWARNING! NEVER charge or leave the battery in the
battery charger beyond the specified time for charging. If the
pack is not completely charged by the specified time, stop
charging and remove it from the battery charger. Continuing
to charge the pack beyond the specified time limit may
cause a fire, overheating, or the battery may rupture.
RRWARNING! NEVER insert the transceiver with the battery
pack attached into the charger if it is wet or soiled. This
could corrode the battery charger terminals or damage the
charger. The charger is not waterproof.
CAUTION: DO NOT charge the battery pack outside of the
specified temperature range: 0˚C ~ 40˚C (32˚F ~ 104˚F).
Icom recommends charging the pack at 25˚C (77˚F). The
pack may heat up or rupture if charged out of the specified
temperature range. Additionally, battery performance or
battery life may be reduced.

BASIC MANUAL
RRWARNING! NEVER transmit for long periods of time.
During prolonged transmissions at high power or mid
power, the transceiver radiates heat to protect itself from
overheating. The transceiver’s chassis will become hot
and may cause a burn.
To prevent the transceiver’s overheating, the default
setting of the time-out timer function is set to 5 minutes.
Be careful when the time-out timer function is turned OFF
or set to a long time period, and you transmit for long
periods.
CAUTION: DO NOT operate the transceiver where heat
dissipation will be obstructed if the transceiver is also
being charged with an external power supply. Poor heat
dissipation may cause a burn, warp the casing or damage
the transceiver.
CAUTION: DO NOT transmit without an antenna. This
may damage the transceiver.
NOTE: When the transceiver becomes hot, the
transceiver’s heat protection function gradually reduces
the output power to approximately 2.5 watts, then it
stops transmission after that. This is done to protect the
transceiver itself until it can cool down.
NOTE: You can transmit on only the amateur band
frequencies.
BASIC OPERATION
IMPORTANT: Before transmitting, monitor the operating
frequency to make sure transmitting won’t cause
interference to other stations on the same frequency.
1. Select the operating mode. (p. 14)
2. Rotate [DIAL] to set the operating frequency. (p. 15)

INTRODUCTION
■■What is D-STAR?
••D-STAR supports the DV mode at 4.8 kbps. Your call sign
data, and either a short message, or GPS data can be
transmitted simultaneously with your voice signal.
••D-STAR is a digital protocol standard developed by
the Japan Amateur Radio League (JARL). The system
includes the DV mode for Digital Voice and the DD mode
for Digital Data communications.
••D-STAR supports a comprehensive repeater system linked
through the Internet, enabling you to make QSOs with
stations near or far from your location.
Advanced Amateur radio technology of D-STAR
The DV mode has a bandwidth of only
6 kHz, compared to 16 kHz for the
analog FM mode, with 5 kHz deviation.
D-STAR utilizes the well-know GMSK
modulation method that makes very
efficient use of occupied bandwidth.

■■Ways to Communicate with
the DR function
With the DR function, the transceiver has 3 ways to
communicate.
Local Area call:To call through your local area (access)
repeater.
Gateway call:To call through your local area (access)
repeater, repeater gateway, and the
Internet to your destination repeater or
individual station’s last used repeater,
using Call Sign Routing.
Simplex call*:To call another station not using a
repeater.
* You can make a simplex call in the VFO mode. (p. 51)
introduction
NOTE:
••Using the repeater list is required to use
the DR function. (p. 57)
••Before operating in the Duplex mode,
BE SURE to check whether the repeater
is busy, or not. If the repeater is busy,
wait until it is clear, or ask for a ‛break’
using a method acceptable to your local
procedures.
••The transceiver has the Time-Out
Timer function for the DV Repeater
operation. The timer limits a continuous
transmission. Warning beeps will sound
approximately 30 seconds before timeout and then again immediately before
the time-out.

■■About reflectors
DDWhat is a reflector?
DDUnlinking a reflector
A reflector is a special server connected to the Internet
and running a version of the D-Plus software. If the D-Plus
software is installed on your access repeater, it provides
various functions including gateway and reflector linking
capabilities (It is known as the D-STAR reflector system).
The D-STAR reflector system enables a number of D-STAR
repeaters anywhere to link to a reflector. This means that
when you transmit through a D-STAR repeater linked to a
reflector, your voice can be heard on other repeaters linked
to the reflector, and you can hear other stations that are
connected to the reflector.
Before trying to link to another reflector, BE SURE to unlink
the current connected reflector.
NOTE: If a reflector is already connected, ask on the
air whether or not you can change reflectors and wait
for responses. BE SURE to reconnect back to the same
reflector when you finish your conversation.
1. Push [RX→CS] to select “TO,” then push [ENT].
••Displays the TO SELECT screen.
