Direct Replacement Radios
Icom was forward thinking here and have directly replaced these radios with a new model that has exactly the same form factor. The only difference is the antenna connetor.
|Old Model||Replacement Model|
Of course the new radios will need programming to work work with your old radios. Programming requires the same programming cable for all radios. But the software is different.
The programming cable for all the following radios is: Icom OPC-1122U
|Radio Model||Software Required|
Want To Go Digital
If you want to move to digital, then the replacement are IC-F5122D (VHF) and IC-F6122D respectively. These radios both work in analogue and digtial mode. So if you’re looking to move to digital in future, but want to stay on analogue for now, IC-F5122D (VHF) and IC-F6122D are worth considering.
