Simple operation for instant communication
The IC-F4001 series is so easy to use there’s no special training required. The few knobs and buttons are generously sized for easy operation and are designed to provide non-slip, positive action — even while wearing gloves.
Easy to hear in noisy areas
The built-in bridge-tied load (BTL) amplifier offers powerful 800mW* audio output from the large 45mm speaker. The radio delivers loud and intelligible audio even in noisy environments.
Typical with internal speaker
Longer operating time
A new high efficiency FET of the IC-F4001 series reduces consumption current and provides 20 hours* of operating time with the BP-265, 2000mAh battery pack. Even when used with the BP-264, the radio offers 14* hours of operating time.
* Tx:Rx:Standbye=5:5:90. Power save function ON.
Weather resistant, dust protection, military rugged
While the radio is a compact unit with a height of only 111mm (43⁄8 inch), the radio is tested to dust protection and water resistant equivalent to IP54 and 11 categories of MIL-STD-810 environmental test. In short, the IC-F4001 series is built rugged!
Internal VOX capability for hands-free operation
The radio has the internal VOX capability for hands-free operation. Optional compatible headset with plug adapter cable OPC-2004 can be used with the radio. Also, the VOX gain and VOX delay time are adjustable.
Selective calling, quiet stand-by and more
2-Tone and 5-Tone signalings give you selective calling, quiet stand-by and other convenient functions with programming. The radio “stun” function disables a radio over the air and the “revive” function restores the stunned radio.
The priority scan allows you to monitor one or two priority channels while scanning other non-priority channels. The Tx channel and talk back functions allow you to make a quick response while scanning.
