ID-31E 70cm D-Star/FM Handheld Radio with GPS


With the ID-31E Icom introduces a very compact and lightweight handheld radio for operation on 70cm with D-Star and FM. To ease the operation with D-Star Icom has enhanced the handling of most used functions. The large LC display is very easy to read, the menu system is held very simple and clear. The often used functions are quickly accessible via special buttons, making D-Star operations a childs play. The ID-31E is splash water protected according to IPX7, which makes it an ideal companion for hikes and other outdoor activities.

The ID-31E has a GPS antenna directly built in. This offers the D-PRS positional informations to the network, letting you see the distance and direction to other stations as well. Further the radio can act as a GPS logger as well, for example to record the track of a mountain hike. If the repeater lists are up to date the ID-31E automatically shows the closest D-Star repeaters.

To offer enough memory space for functions like the GPS logger, Icom has provided a slot for a Micro-SD memory card (max. 32GB, not included). This memory card record GPS logger data, entire QSOs (Rx and Tx audio) as well as repeater lists and entire personalized radio setups.

The ID-31E offers more than 1250 memories for frequencies like repeaters etc., which can be organized in several banks. This allows to arrange the memories for example depending on the location. Icom offers a free software for memory management (CS-31). This software is used directly with the Micro-SD memory card or with an optional programming cable.

The transmitter of the ID-31E has up to 5 W output power, which can be reduced to 2.5, 0.5 or 0.1 W. Included in shipment is a LiIon rechargeable battery with 110mAh capacity. A larger LiIon battery with 1880mAh and a battery box (3x AA) are available as an option.
