Compact body
While the ICOM IC-V85 provides a full 7 watts of output power, its 110mm* body
height is compact enough to allow for easy carrying.
* 411⁄32 in (projections are not included)

7W of high output power
Let the power of 7 watts extend your communications range. With its large
capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-227, the IC-V85/E provides a practical
7 hours* of operating time. Reduced power (4W/0.5W) settings are also
available for even longer operating time.
* Typical operation with Tx: Rx: standby=1:1:8.

External DC power jack
An external DC power jack allows for operation when
used with the external DC power supply (11.0V DC). Your
IC-V85/E receives and transmits as it charges.

Water resistant construction
The water resistant construction, equivalent to IPX4 rating, provides reliable
operation in wet conditions for practical outdoor usage.

107 memory channels and 10 memory banks
Up to 107 memory channels can be stored. Use the 5-character display
capabilities to assign your own individual channel names, then store those
channels in any of the 10 memory banks. The DMS (Dynamic Memory
Scan) system allows you to scan selected memory banks by simply adding
and deleting bank links.

Built-in CTCSS/DTCS tone codes provide quiet stand-by and allows you to
use tone-access repeaters. The pocket beep alerts you when a matching
tone frequency is received. The tone scan detects the tone frequency used
in the received signal.

DTMF memory and optional DTMF decoder
16 DTMF memory channels with up to 24 DTMF codes enable you to
perform remote control operation. The optional DTMF decoder unit, UT-108,
provides code squelch operation and pager function.
