Connecting radios all over the world

Icom IC-F5400-Series

The Icom IC-F5400-Series radios can be remote controlled with audio and PTT. Also the channel and the zone of the radio can be changed remotely from the Virtual Control Head in Mimer SoftRadio.

If you run the radio in IDAS mode, the ID number of the transmitting radio will be shown on the display. (Only ID number, no alias)

More functions will most likely be implemented at a later stage.

Suitable Network Interface is 3009/48.
Cable Kit is 3243.

There is also a smaller version that only remote controls the audio and the PTT, no channel change. Then you use the Network Interface LE, 3130.

Examples of use:

  • Local use when several dispatchers want to share one radio
  • Remote use where a dispatcher at one location want to talk to radio users at a different location
  • CrossPatch between IDAS radio channels and other two way radios, like analogue, Airband, DMR, Tetra or MPT.

Channel name Setup

The radio does not report the channel names, only a technical number, to external devices. For this reason it is important to make a list of channel names and zones and save it in the interface.

The list needs to be an exact copy of the list in the radio. If the programming of a channel is changed in the radio, it also needs to be changed in the interface.

When all is correct the Virtual Control Head will show the name of the channel.
