7 W Output Power and 1500 mW Audio

2M with Powerful Audio
The IC-V86 gives you more audio, more RF power, more coverage, and more battery capacity in a compact, MIL-STD portable. With 1.5W of receive audio power and a new chassis design, the IC-V86 enables users to hear incoming signals in loud, noisy environments. The IC-V86 expands users' radios coverage with 7W of RF output power, and the new 2250mAh Li-Ion battery pack provides longer operational capabilities.





* Wide open space

7 W Output Power and 1500 mW Audio

* Wide open space. Approximate, comparing the IC-V86 with the IC-V80. Communication range may differ depending on operating environment or weather conditions, etc. 7 W output power is only for theIC-V86.

1500 mW powerful audio

1500 mW Powerful Audio and 1.5 Times* Higher Sound Pressure

* Approximate, comparing the IC-V86 with the IC-V80.

Optional 1500 mW Speaker-Microphone, HM-222HLWP

The combination of the optional HM-222HLWP and the IC-V86/U86* also provides 1500 mW (typ.)  loud audio from the attached speaker-microphone.

* For the transceiver  with a "U" mark on the serial number label.

Dust-Protection, Water Resistance and a Tough Body
