ICOM ID-4100A – Terminal Mode and Access Point Mode

QRZ Now - 57 min 31 sec ago

During his visit to DX Engineering in Tallmadge, Ohio on August 25, 2017, Will Jourdain, AA4WJ from ICOM America talked about the Icom ID-4100A and the Terminal Mode and Access Point Mode for D-Star.

Since the introduction of D-STAR in 2001, Icom has been committed to improving and advancing the D-STAR experience. The ID-4100A and it’s advance technology does just that! The upgraded user interface and new enhancements provide a product other digital voice modes cannot match!

Output power   50W, 15W, 5W (Hi, Mid, Low) RX frequencies:   118-174, 230-550MHz Receiver type:   Dual conversion superhetrodyne User friendly

The ID-4100A’s full dot-matrix display gives the user the ability to see a lot of information on the screen. For example, Repeater list or GPS position information are clearly arranged and easy to read.

The DV/FM near repeater search function assists you in accessing nearby repeaters, even in areas you visit for the first time. The function searches for nearby repeaters using the repeater memories with the GPS position information. To use the near repeater search function, the position data of the repeater is required. The ID-4100A will ship with the D-STAR repeater memories preprogrammed, but the position data of some D-STAR repeaters may not be entered or exact.

Built-in GPS

The integrated GPS receiver shows your own position, course, speed and altitude on the display and can be used for exchanging position reports, D-PRS and searching for nearby repeaters.

Voice & data storage

Add a microSD* card to store various information including voice memory, TX voice message, QSO log, RX history log, and GPS log data. Memory channels and other settings can be saved and loaded into the transceiver. 
* MicroSD card is sold separately.

Android™ and iOS™ apps available

Install the UT-137 Bluetooth® board and download the RS-MS1I (for iOS™ devices) or RS-MS1A (for Android™ devices) to enable you to wirelessly connect to the ID-4100A and remotely set the DR functions, link with a map application, and send/receive messages over the DV mode. In addition, pictures taken by a smart device can be transmitted via the DV Fast Data mode or DV mode.

Additional features
  • Data place in voice frames transfer data 3.5 times faster (3480 bps) than in the conventional DV mode (with voice).
  • Terminal mode and access point mode
  • The QUICK key allows instant access to menus listing dedicated functions depending on mode
  • Multiple scan functions for Memory/Bank scan, Full scan, Band scan, Program scan, Program link scan, Duplex scan Tone scan, and DR scan
  • 16 channels of DTMF memory (24-digit)
  • CTCSS/DTCS signaling with the split tone functions (analog mode)
  • 8.33 kHz air band channel reception
  • Auto repeater function
