P25 Conventional and Trunking Features
Get ready for P25 conventional, P25 trunking and analog
conventional all in one radio with the IC-9511 series!
P25 UHF and VHF conventional and trunking
The IC-F9511 series has P25 VHF and UHF conventional and trunking
capabilities as standard. You can configure the radio into P25
conventional and trunking systems as well as an analog
The IC-F9511 series conforms to the standard specifications
for TIA/EIA TSB-102, CAAB, Digital C4FM Transceiver Performance
Recommendations and provides interoperability with other brand
P25 equipment for public safety applications.
Digital/Analog mixed mode operations
The mixed mode operation allows you to detect and receive both
analog FM and P25 digital modes and to transmit either mode
depending on programming.
Individual ID and talkgroup ID
The IC-F9511 series has 100 individual ID and
250 talkgroup ID memories. Use the display to
visually select the person or group you're going
Optional AES/DES encryption
The IC-F9511 provides AES and/or DES encryption
for secure conversation with the optional UT-125
AES/DES encryption unit or UT-128 DES encryption
unit. Versions certified to FIPS 140-2 Level 1
for AES encryption are planned for future
The IC-9511 series supports P25 OTAR for changing encryption keys over the air.
Enhanced Vocoder ready
Using the DVSI's AMBE+2™ vocoder, the IC-F9511
series is enhanced vocoder ready.
Detachable controller (front panel)
With the optional remote control kit, RMK-2 and separation
cable, the front panel controller of the readio can be detached
from the main unit. It allows flexible installation in limited
vehicle space. Separation cable length is selectable from 1.9m
(6.2ft), 3m (9.8ft) and 8m (26ft).
Dot matrix, multi-function LCD
With a high contrast dot matrix display, upper and lower case
characters can be easily distinguished. The display shows 12
characters by 2 lines. LCD backlight is standard.
IP54 dust-protection and splash resistance (controller only)
The rugged front controller panel is resistant to shock and
vibration. When used with the optional separation kit, RMK-2,
the controller head has dust-protection and splash resistance,
equivalent to IP54
Built-in CTCSS and DTCS signaling
Use the built-in CTCSS and DTCS encoder and decoder capabilities*
to set up your own talk groups, and have your radio stand-by
quietly when other groups are talking. You can also set up
selective calls to individuals or control a repeater.
*Analog mode only.
512 memory channels, 128 zones
Up to 512 memory channels can be divided into 128
memory zones, allowing you flexible channel and
communication group management.
Tactical group function
The tactical group function allows you to copy
memory channels to the tactical zone and temporarily
regroup memory channels. Using the optional zone
copy cable, memory channels in the tactical zone can
be transferred from a master radio to other radios.
Abundant scanning functions
The dual priority scan monitors two primary
channels alternately, while scanning other channels.
The mode dependent scan function automatically
changes the scan list according to the operating
channel setting. The talk back function with timer
beep, TX channel and cancel channel settings allow
you to preset the transmission channel when you push
the PTT button during a scanning operation or cancel
22W amp for public address(PA) and RX speaker function
The IC-F9511T/S has a built-in 22W BTL audio
amplifier. When an external loud speaker is
connected to the radio, you can speak through the
radio's microphone. The RX speaker function allows
you to relay the received audio over the loud
Programmable accessory connector
The IC-F9511T/S has a D-SUB 25-pin ACC connector
for connecting external devices. It has reserved
pins for programming to input operating channels,
turn on/off functions and output received audio or
honk a horn, etc. In addition, an ignition sensing
line allows you to control the radio power from the
engine ignition switch.
Radio stun/kill and power-on password function
The radio stun/kill function* disables a lost or
stolen radio over the are, eliminating security
threats from undesired listeners. The power-on
password prevents unauthorized people from turning
on the radio.
*P25 digital mode only.
