Go Farther Away
Get Louder Audio

The IC-V3500 contains powerful communications with its compact body and simple interface. This radio's large heatsink helps ensure stable output during continuous transmissions. This radio is a must for those looking for a long-range mobile with a fresh look.

65 W Powerful RF Output Power

The IC-V3500 is a rugged 2 m mobile transceiver providing powerful 65 W* of output power. The output power level is selectable in four steps and the selected power is displayed.
* Output power differs depending on version and specific regulatory requirements.

Modern White Display and Simple Operation

While the IC-V3500 retains a simple user interface despite additional function updates for an easy to use radio. The white LCD backlight offers a better readability suitable for mobile operation. The bottom of the display indicates the available functions of the front panel buttons directly below the display.

4.5 W Loud and Clear Audio Output

The IC-V3500 provides class-leading 4.5 W loud audio from the built-in speaker. By improving the frequency response of the speaker and increasing opening slit, the voice is clearly audible and easy to hear.

Instant Volume Loud and Mute Functions

You can temporarily change the volume to a preset level with a simple operation. It can be used as a One-touch mute function by preset volume to zero.

Emergency Call and Alert Functions

In the case of an emergency, the emergency call function alternatively sends an emergency beep and hot microphone audio to let the receiver to know that an emergency has occurred. At the same time, an emergency alarm sounds from the IC-V3500 speaker to notify the people around you of your existence and situation.
