MDC 1200 system operation

The MDC 1200 signaling system enhances your transceiver’s capabilities. It allows PTTID*, Emergency signaling, and receiving a Radio Check. Also, the dispatcher can stun and revive transceivers on the system.

An additional feature of the MDC 1200 system in Icom transceivers is called aliasing. Each transceiver on the system has a unique ID number. Aliasing allows substituting an alphanumeric name for the ID number. When transmitting, you can use this alias to select a transceiver to call. When a call is received, the alias of the calling station is displayed instead of the ID.

* When [PTT] is pushed or released, the transceiver transmits your station ID.

NOTE: During MDC 1200 system operation, IDAS operation capability is disabled.

MDC 1200 OPERATION

MDC 1200 OPERATION

Transmitting a call

D PTTID Calls

The transceiver can send an MDC 1200 system signal that includes PTTID when [PTT] is pushed (begin transmitting) and released (stop transmitting). If a PTTID call is received, the transceiver will display the calling station’s ID (or alias) and sound a beep.* (

*Depending on the preprogramming.)

D Transmitting an Emergency Call

When [Emergency] (described in the instruction manual) is held down for a specified time period,* the emergency signal is once or repeatedly transmitted on the specified emergency channel.

When no emergency channel is specified, the call is transmitted on the operating channel.

The repeat emergency signal is automatically transmitted until you turn OFF the power.

Depending on the preprogramming, receiving an acknowledgement may cancel the transmission.

If you want to cancel the Emergency function, hold down

[Emergency] for the preprogrammed time period again before transmitting the call.

If your transceiver is programmed for Silent operation, you can transmit emergency calls without the beep sounding and the LCD display changing.

IMPORTANT: Setting an individual emergency channel is recommended for dependable emergency call operation.

* Depending on the preprogramming, the following functions can be automatically activated. Ask your dealer for details.

D NOTES

• Auto TX function

After an emergency call transmission, audio from the microphone is automatically transmitted for a specified time period.

• The HM-148G or HM-152 hand microphone

is required.

• Auto RX function

After an emergency call transmission, the transceiver stands by in the audible mode for a specified time period.

IDAS operation

The IC-F5120D and IC-F6120D series use the Icom Digital

Advanced System (IDAS) that meets the 6.25 kHz emission mask requirements for narrow banding. IDAS increases efficiency of channel allocation and use of the RF spectrum.

NOTE: During IDAS operation, MDC 1200 system operation capability is disabled.

IDAS Trunk operation

The IDAS Trunk system enables further effective channel management by sharing a minimum of channels with a large number of users.

Push [Zone], then push [CH Up] or [CH Down]* to select the

IDAS Trunk zone.

* The method to select the desired zones may differ, depending on your system set up.

NOTE: During IDAS Trunk operation, you can receive and transmit digital calls in the same way as IDAS operation, as described in ‘■ Receiving a call,’ ‘■ Transmitting a call.’
