Icoms RP5000 repeater is compact and meets rugged MIL-STD 810 military specifications.

The repeaters utilize a 2U low profile design in a 19-inch industry standard rack arrangement. This allows ample space to install duplexers and other repeater components. Each repeater includes a front firing speaker and microphone jack for repeater or local control radio use ideal for portable Emergency Communications use.

The new RP5000/RP6000 features superior receiver performance. The repeaters also employ a 0.5ppm oscillator and power amplifier for stable RF power output. Reliable 100% duty cycle is achieved at 25W output. At full 50W power output, the repeater operates at solid 50% duty cycle. Other repeater features include a DTMF encoder/decoder, DTMF remote control capability and D-SUB 25-pin ACC port. Covers 144-148 MHz.


Programming is available only through authorized Icom dealers as the programming software is not available to the consumer.
