Icom’s IC-SAT100 is a satellite PTT radio that allows users around the world to communicate with a group of PTT radios at the push of a button. To do this, the IC-SAT100 utilizes Iridium® satellite network covering the earth including both poles providing wide area global communication anywhere on the planet.
SATELLITE PTT (Push-To-Talk) is a two-way radio system that uses the Iridium® satellite network. It can be used as a communication tool in remote, isolated areas where there are no mobile phones or landline network infrastructure. Even if terrestrial network infrastructure is rendered unusable by human or natural disasters, SATELLITE PTT can provide a stable back-up, independent from other networks.
Unlike satellite phones, IC-SAT100 users can immediately start talking to all the radios in the same talkgroup, with just a push of the transmit (PTT) button.
Stay alert and informed with the convenient emergency key function. By holding down the orange key on the top of the radio, an emergency call will be sent to other preprogrammed radios. Users can also use the priority interrupt function to relay important messages.
With an IP67 rating that means this radio is waterproof up to 1m depth of water for 30 minutes and dustproof. With the AquaQuake function, stay assured that the radio stays internally dry. When usoing the AquaQuake function, the radio vibrates and pushes the water out of the grill of the speaker.
Communicate confidently with short data messaging or PTT on the secure AES 256-bit encryption key.
