Icom RC-FS10


  • Description

Virtual Radio/Dispatch Software for an IDAS™ Conventional IP Network System

Control your radio system from a remote office with the RC-FS10 remote communicator. It creates a virtual radio/dispatcher on a Windows® PC. The PC software provides a minimum set of programmable dispatcher console-like functions, like simple repeater control.

Virtually Link up to 16 IDAS Repeaters
The communicator allows for scalable capacity. One remote communicator can connect up to 8 repeaters, or 8 remote communicators can connect to one repeater.

Coordinate your In-The-Field Staff Remotely
The PC software will provide a set of programmable dispatcher console-like functions, as well as simple repeater control such as channel changing capability.

The software is easy to use with a flexible button layout on the PC monitor. Users can program capabilities found in subscriber units on their PC like stun, revive, emergency, status, etc. Users can also log calls and text messages to other users (up to 10 characters). There are also three levels of password security.

Radio over IP (RoIP) is an expanded version of VoIP, transmitting the radio control signals such as PTT and COR in digital format in addition to the digital voice packets. With RoIP it is possible to offer end to end digital signaling from a handset to any other communications device in the world. RoIP technology eliminates the leased lines previously used to remotely control base stations by tones and, in a RoIP digital implementation there are no conversions from E&M to IP limiting the controls signals available or delaying the speed of signaling. Of course true end to end digital signaling and communications also facilitates end to end encryption for secure communications.

Application Sample 1: Single Site System

For dispatch desks in large, multi-storied or remote buildings where non-IP radio connections from the base radio to the main antenna would be inefficient, overly expensive or not possible.

Use the RC-FS10 on a laptop and reach back to the repeater while away from the office. Also applicable for companies with the dispatch locations far distant from the rest of the radio system.

Designed for:

  • Delivery companies
  • Waste management
  • School districts
  • Hospitals
  • Utilities
  • Security companies
  • Large casinos
  • Correctional facilities

Application Sample 2: Multi-site System

One company with multiple branch sites and multiple repeaters who want to control everything remotely, whether across town or from around the globe. Up to 16 IDAS repeaters (sites) can work on one network.

One RC controls up to 8 IDAS repeaters. One IDAS repeater can be connected to up to 8 RCs. Connect up to 128 RC units within an IDAS network.

Designed for:

  • Large companies or agencies of all types

Application Sample 3: Monitoring Different User Groups

Connecting different radio systems, even those using different frequency bands, via IP to achieve seamless voice and data communications.

Designed for:

  • Public safety agencies looking for affordable interoperability
  • Recently merged companies who need to reconcile incompatible radio system
  • Large companies or agencies operating different radio systems who want to bring their communications under one umbrella


Digital Voice Converter

USB device which converts microphone audio to an IDAS NXDN compatible digital signal. The remote communicator software will not work if the CT-24 is not connected.



Audio Cable

onnects HM-152 or SM-26 microphone audio (RJ-45 jack) and PTT/Monitor signals to the 3.5mm stereo jack for connection with a PC. A stereo jack cable is supplied with the CT-23.
