VHF and UHF FM Repeaters

Icom IC-FR3000 Series

Bridging the gap between bands




50 Watt continuous full duty cycle operation

This repeater looks as good as it performs. A rugged heatsink, large cooling fans and a high performance power module provide the repeater with a stable 50W at full duty cycle operation.


Automatic battery backup system

A built-in backup system supports automatic switching to an external power supply (13.6V DC) if the AC power supply fails.


Multiple CTCSS & DTCS tone memories with multiple memory channels

Up to 16 CTCSS/DTCS tones (TX/RX tones respectively) can be programmed in a channel. This feature allows you to share a channel with multiple user groups. You can also give priority/exclusive use to a specified group simply by programming different tones to another memory channel. Ideal for many different applications.


Built-in 2-Tone, 5-Tone, DTMF encoder & decoder

Multiple signaling systems are equipped as standard. These systems are fully compatible with Icom F-series radios.


Internal space for duplexer and isolator

The repeater has an internal space to install a duplexer and isolator*. The controls of the duplexer are accessible from the front of the repeater without disassembly. Faster and easier maintenance and adjustment is possible.

* Ask about details about available duplexers and isolators.


Telephone interconnect capability


DTMF remote control capability

You can control the repeater from a remote location over the air or over a phone line with DTMF.


Additional Features

Master/Slave backup operation by connecting two repeaters

Self check function checks for internal errors and alerts with a beep sound or with a phone call

Accessory connector (D-sub 25-pin) on the rear panel for trunking controller including LTR™ and PassPort®

Compatible with VEGA tone remote control system

5-Tone relay function

Optional Voice Scrambler UT-109 or UT-110

CW ID transmitter (DTMF or 5-Tone also selectable)

Password and kill/stun function for security
