Icom’s latest generation of D-STAR handportable is now available.
The ID-51E PLUS2 allows you to make digital voice and data calls through the worldwide D-STAR network.
This new model incorporates popular features found in previous versions including integrated GPS, an independent AM/FM receiver and V/V, U/U, V/U Dualwatch. It also now includes new ‘Terminal Mode’* and ‘Access Point Modes’* enabling an operator to make D-STAR Callsign routed calls through the internet, even from areas where no D-STAR repeater is accessible.
This new ID-51E PLUS2 gives users even more flexibility allowing you to connect the ID-51E PLUS2 through a PC or Android device, and send your voice and/or data through the internet gateway to a destination repeater. In addition, the ID-51E PLUS2 will allow you to use it as a D-STAR Hotspot so other D-STAR enabled radios can use it as a gateway to the D-STAR network.
The ID-51E PLUS2 dualband D-STAR digital transceiver is now available from authorised Icom Amateur Radio dealers, initially in grey, with a suggested retail price of £449.99 inc.VAT. Each radio comes supplied with the OPC-2350LU PC/Android data cable for use with the
