PANEL DESCRIPTION 2

Programmable function keys

The following functions can be assigned to [Upper] and[Lower] 2 programmable function keys.

Consult your Icom dealer or system operator for details concerning your transceivers programming.

If the programmable function names are bracketed in the following explanations, the specific key used to activate the function depends on programming.

SCAN A KEY

This key’s operation depends on the Power ON Scan setting.

When the power ON scan function is turned OFF;

Push to start and cancel scanning operation. In case of transmission during scan, cancels scanning.

When the power ON scan function is turned ON;

Push to pause scanning. Scanning resumes after passing a specified time period. In case of transmission during scan, pauses scanning. Scanning resumes after passing a specified time period.

SCAN B KEY

Push to start and cancel scanning operation. In case of transmission during scan, pauses scanning. Scanning resumes after passing a specified time period.

PRIORITY CHANNEL KEYS

Push to select the Priority A or Priority B channel.

Push and hold [Prio A (Rewrite)] to rewrite the Prio A channel.

MR-CH1/2/3/4 KEYS

Push to select a memory channels 1 to 4 directly.

NOTE: The memory channels 3 and 4 are available for IC-F15S/F25S when[MR-CH 3] and[MR-CH 4] keys are assigned.

2 PANEL DESCRIPTION

MONITOR KEY

Mute and release the CTCSS (DTCS) or 2-tonesquelch mute. Open any squelch/deactivate any mute while pushing this key. (LMR operation only)

Activates one of (or two of) the following functions on each channel independently: (PMR operation only)

Push and hold to un-mutethe channel (audio is emitted; ‘Audible’ condition).

Push to mute the channel (sets to ‘Inaudible’ only).

Push to un-mutethe channel (sets to ‘Audible’ only).

Push after the communication is finished to send a ‘reset code’.

NOTE: Theun-mutecondition (‘Audible’ condition) may auto-

matically return to the mute condition (‘Inaudible‘ condition)

after a specified period.

LOCK KEY

Push and hold to electronically lock all programmable keys except the following:

[Call] (incl. Call A and Call B),[Moni(Audi)] and[Emergency] keys.

OUTPUT POWER SELECTION KEY

Select the transmit output power temporarily or permanently, depending on the pre-setting.

• Ask your dealer for the output power level for each selection.

TALK AROUND KEY

Push to turn the talk around function OFF.

Push and hold to turn the talk around function ON.

The talk around function equalizes the transmit frequency to the receive frequency for transceiver-to-transceivercommunication.

WIDE/NARROW KEY

Push to select the IF bandwidth to wide.

The wide passband width can be selected from 25.0 or 20.0 kHz using the CS-F14CLONING SOFTWARE (PMR operation only.) Ask your dealer for details.

Push and hold to select the IF bandwidth to narrow.

10

PANEL DESCRIPTION 2

DTMF AUTODIAL KEY

Push to transmit the programmed DTMF code.

CALL KEYS

2

 

Push to transmit a 2/5-tonecode.

 

Call transmission is necessary before you call another station depending on your signalling system.

[Call A] and/or[Call B] keys may be available when your system employs selective ‘Individual/Group’ calls. Ask your dealer which call is assigned to each key.

EMERGENCY KEYS

Push and hold to transmit an emergency call.

When [Emergency Single (Silent)]or [Emergency Repeat (Silent)]is pushed, an emergency call is transmitted without a beep emission.

If you want to cancel the emergency call, push (or push and hold) the key again before transmitting the call.

The emergency call is transmitted one time only or repeatedly until receiving a control code depending on the pre-setting.

VOICE SCRAMBLER FUNCTION KEYS

Push to turn the voice scrambler function OFF.

Push and hold to turn the voice scrambler function ON.

OPT OUT KEYS

Push to inactivate the connected output signal level.

Push and hold to activate the connected output signal level.

SIREN KEY

Push to emit a siren. This function can be used for situations other than an emergency alert such as a security alarm for example.

3 CONVENTIONAL OPERATION

Turning power ON

Rotate [VOL] to turn power ON.

[VOL]

Channel selection

IC-F15S/F25S:

Toggle [CHANNEL SWITCH] to select the channel 1 or 2, or, push one of[MRCH 1] to[MR-CH 4] key to select a channel directly.

The memory channels 3 and 4 are available when [MR-CH 3] and[MR-CH 4] keys are assigned.

IC-F15/F25:

Rotate [CHANNEL SELECTOR] to select the desired operating channel, in sequence; or, push one of[MR-CH 1] to[MR-CH 4] key to select a channel directly.

AUTOMATIC SCAN TYPE:

[CHANNEL SWITCH]

[CHANNEL

SELECTOR]

Channel setting is not necessary for this type. When turning the power ON, the transceiver automatically starts scanning. Scanning stops when receiving a call.

CONVENTIONAL OPERATION 3

Call procedure

When your system employs tone signalling (excluding CTCSS and DTCS), the call procedure may be necessary prior to voice trans- 3 mission. The tone signalling employed may be a selective calling system which allows you to call specific station(s) only and prevent unwanted stations from contacting you.

qSelect the desired TX code channel or 2/5-tonecode according to your System Operator’s instructions.

This may not be necessary depending on programming.

wPush the call key (assigned to one of the dealer programmable keys.) (p. 11)

eAfter transmitting a 2/5-tonecode, the remainder of your communication can be carried out in the normal fashion.

3 CONVENTIONAL OPERATION

Receiving and transmitting

NOTE: Transmitting without an antenna may damage the transceiver. See p. 2 for antenna attachment.

Receiving:

q Rotate [VOL] to turn power ON.

wToggle [CHANNEL SWITCH] (IC-F15S/F25S),rotate[CHANNEL SELECTOR] (IC-F15/F25)or push one of[MR-CH 1] to[MR-CH 4] key to select a channel.

ForIC-F15S/F25S:

The memory channels 3 and 4 are available when[MR-CH 3] and[MR-CH 4] keys are assigned.

eWhen receiving a call, adjust the audio output level to a comfortable listening level.

Transmitting:

Wait for the channel to become clear to avoid interference.

qWhile pushing and holding [PTT], speak into the microphone at a normal voice level.

When a tone signalling system is used, the call procedure described on p. 13 may be necessary.

w Release [PTT] to return to receive.

IMPORTANT!: To maximize the readability of your signal;

1. Pause briefly after pushing [PTT].

2. Hold the microphone 5 to 10 cm from your mouth, then speakinto the microphone at a normal voice level.

D Transmitting notes

 

• Transmit inhibit function

3

The transceiver has several inhibit functions which restrict transmission under the following conditions:

-The channel is in mute condition.

-Channel is busy.

-Un-matched(or matched) CTCSS is received.

-The selected channel is a ‘receive only’ channel.

Time-outtimer

After continuous transmission for the pre-programmedtime period, thetime-outtimer activates, and causes the transceiver to stop transmitting.

• Penalty timer

Once the time-outtimer activates, transmission is further inhibited for a period determined by the penalty timer.

D DTMF transmission

If the transceiver has [DTMF Autodial] assigned to it, the automatic DTMF transmission function is available.

Push [DTMF Autodial] to transmit the DTMF code.

15

3 CONVENTIONAL OPERATION

Scrambler function

The optional voice scrambler units UT-109(#01) andUT-110(#01) provide high performance private communication between stations with the same scrambler codes.

Push and hold [Scrambler] to turn the scrambler function ON.

Push [Scrambler] to turn the scrambler function OFF.

Setting the squelch level

The squelch circuit mutes the received audio signal depending on the signal strength.

qWhile pushing [PTT] and[Lower], rotate[VOL] to turn the power ON to enter the squelch level adjust-

ment mode.

wPush [Upper] to increase the squelch level (tight squelch) or

[Lower] to decrease the squelch level (loose squelch).

eRotate [VOL] to turn the power OFF to fix the squelch level.
