The IC-E92D is a waterproof dual band transceiver. The IC-E92D is ideal for D-STAR enthusiasts, active hams who are fans of outdoor pursuits or organisations that are looking for a simple GPS position reporting system.
The IC-E92D also provides waterproof protection, equivalent to IPX7. If used with the optional HM-175GPS, the IC-E92D provides GPS position reporting functions in DV mode; GPS functions are fully compatible with the IC-E2820 series.
Optional GPS speaker-microphone, HM-175GPS
Used with the newly designed GPS speaker-microphone, HM-175GPS, the IC-E92D shows your position data on the e display and offers a position reporting function in DV mode. The IC-E92D shows the direction to a memory position or to a received D-STAR station with a compass like display needle. In addition, the GPS-A mode assists in easy D-PRS mode operation
IPX7 submersible construction
The IC-E92D and HM-175GPS provide superior waterproof protection equivalent to IPX7 (1m depth of water for 30 minutes). It can be used in harsh outdoor environments, when hiking, mountain biking, touring and alpine sports.
4-step RF power selection
The IC-E92D provides 5W (typ.) output power both in VHF/UHF bands. The supplied BP-256 provides up to 6/5.5 hours* of operating time. When you don't need full power operation, you can reduce output power to 2.5/0.5/0.1W (typ.) for saving battery consumption.
*VHF/UHF single mode, Tx high: Rx: Stand-by duty ratio= 1: 1: 8
RETAINED FEATURES (From IC-E91)
Wide band receiver with dual watch capability
The IC-E92D has dual watch receiver capability, allowing you to receive two bands simultaneously (V/V, U/U, V/U possible). By pushing and holding the [Main/Dual] button, you can easily turn on/off the dual watch mode, while a press of the button allows you to toggle the active VFO channels. When in the dual watch mode, the operating frequency and mode are restricted to 495kHz–999.990MHz in FM/WFM/AM mode (VFO A) and 118–174MHz or 350–470MHz in FM/FM-N/AM/DV mode (VFO B)*.
* See specifications page for receive range coverage.
Large dot-matrix LCD
Using a large full dot-matrix LCD (37.8 × 20 mm), the IC-E92D clearly shows two line frequency settings, alphanumeric channel name, bandscope, received short data message and GPS coordination, etc. You can change the display setting to show frequency or memory name in the centre of the display. In addition automatic LCD and keypad backlight provides bright illumination for night time operation.
Total 1304 memory channels
The IC-E92D has a total 1304 memory channels with 26 memory banks. The VFO A has 800 regular channels, 50 scan edges and 2 call channels, while the VFO B has 400 regular, 50 scan edges and 2 call channels. All memory channels, memory banks and even scan edges can be named with 8-character channel comments
Spectrum activity is visually shown on the screen and AF output is emitted while sweeping the range. It is useful for findingor interfering signals.
The 4-direction cursor buttons on the keypad gives you quick and intuitive access to many settings. The twin volume/channel knob provides convenient channel/volume setting.
External DC power jack
An external DC power jack allows for operation with an external DC power supply (10–16V DC). When used with the CP-19, CP-12L or OPC-254L, simultaneous operation during charging is possible.
Built-in CTCSS/DTCS encoder and decoder
CTCSS and DTCS tones are used for accessing a closed repeater or tone squelch operation. The pocket beep alerts you with a beep sound when the transceiver receives a preset tone.
Multiple scan functions
The IC-92AD/E92D supports various scan types for maximum reception and ease of use.
- Full scan
- Selected band scan
- Programmed scan
- Memory scan
- Memory mode scan
- All bank scan
- Selected bank scan
- Tone scan
- Bank link scan (DMS)
- Program scan link
- Skip scan
- Priority scan
- Squelch release function to monitor a weak signal.
- Auto power save, power off and power on 10 channel DTMF memory (16-digit)
- 10dB (approx) built-in attenuator
D-STAR DV mode available (Digital Voice + data)
The IC-92AD/E92D provides DV mode operation with an AMBE codec. 950 bps data can be sent simultaneously with the digital voice transmission. The IC-E92D is compatible with the JARL D-STAR format*.
In addition, when you receive an FM mode (or other mode) signal while operating in DV mode, the automatic DV detection function automatically changes the operating mode to the detected mode.
* The Digital features of the IC-E92D are compatible with IC-91 series (With UT-121), IC-2820 series (with UT-123), ID-800H, IC-V82/U82 (with UT-118) and IC-2200H (with UT-118).
GPS position reporting function
When connected to HM-175GPS own and other station’s position information can be sent and received*. The IC-E92D sends the position data either by holding the PTT switch, or at a preset interval (5 seconds–30 minutes), depending on the setting.
* GPS data receive only is possible when no external GPS receiver or GPS speaker-microphone is attached.
Plotting position information on mapping software
When connected to a PC* via the optional RS-232C cable, OPC-1799, the position information can be plotted on mapping software* on a PC.
* Serial port and position mapping software (NMEA 0183 format) are required.
The GPS alarm sounds when your own position is close to the specified point or area.
One touch reply button
The IC-E92D has a one-touch reply function. It uses the received callsign (including repeater callsign) and allows you to call back to the calling station without hassle. In addition, up to 20 received callsigns are stored as the received call record.
Built-in voice recorder and auto reply
The IC-E92D has a built-in voice recorder*. It records an incoming call in DV mode for up to 30 seconds (approx.), or can be partitioned into 3 tracks (10 seconds each). The 10-second transmit memory allows you to record your callsign, CQ and automatically answers when you receive a message.
Optional PC remote control capability (Also available in analog mode)
When the IC-E92D is connected to a PC via a RS-232C cable, most functions of the IC-E92D can be controlled from the PC. In DV mode operation, you can send and receive short messages of 20 characters (Max.) on the PC.
DX communication over the D-STAR system
The 144, 440MHz D-STAR repeater is now available. It allows you cross band (144 /440/1200MHz) operation and long distance communication over the D-STAR system.
