Folks, this thread is about the Icom ID-5100 radio.

If you want to debate various amateur radio digital formats, please go to this thread where I have moved some of your posts:

Which digi mode will win out in the end????

Yes, my IC-2820H also needs an upgrade. Like the ID-51 and am sure will like the new ICOM.
Digital radio is what keeps me going in this hobby after 52 years. Love the new technology.

Nothing on the FCC Web Site yet as of today, but that doesn't mean that it has or has not been submitted.

I'm about to grab a 2820, anyone know if the 5100D does crossband repeat? I see it has dual DV receive but no mention of crossband repeat either in digital or analog mode. If it does, I'm gonna hold off for this model.

Looks like a nice radio, easy to read remote display head, the specs it would be nice if it would do IDAS is well. Thinking of putting an IDAS repeater on the air so the commercial offerings would also work.

I bet it will be closer to Dayton before this radio is even offered for sale.

might be a dumb question but since this radio will support D-PRS does that mean it will also be able to use APRS? I am looking for a dualbander with APRS support for the truck to replace the 880h that is in there now.

Not without an external TNC.

DPRS is not the same as APRS. While DPRS position reports show up on Internet-based APRS maps, like APRS.fi, DPRS position reports do not go out over RF so that other RF-based APRS users can see them.

You could probably add a TNC or APRS tracker to the ID-5100 and do D-Star on one side of the radio and APRS on the other side.

Icom ID-5100A FCC AFJ348400 as of 03/27/2014. No Owner's Manual available on the FCC Site, but is is available on the Icom America Web Site. The "CD (in depth) manual" is not yet available on the Icom America Site, but could be available elsewhere.

Yes, all GPS enabled D-Star radios will support D-PRS; heck, even the Raspberry Pi DVAP's pass the data through from ID31/51 portables with a properly configured image. I just wish all the repeater owners would get on board and update their software to support that and ircddb functions; should be pretty standard at this point in the game!

The "Full Instruction Manual" for the ID-5100A/E is now available on the IcomAmerica Web Site. Also the "Cloning Software" CS-5100 is available on the Icom (Japan) download site.

Default Cross band repeater supported for FM / FMn only

The unit supports cross band repeat for FM and FM narrow only and it is limited to the US version according to the Icom America manual.

No DV cross band is listed.

What's this, a menu selection ??? No secret, multiple simultaneous button pressing sequence? What is the world coming to?

My only complaint: according to both manuals, not only does the radio not come with a mounting bracket for the main unit, but there is no mention of an optional one. However, the width (and height) of the main body is the same as that of the IC-2820h and the ID-880h, so certainly there shouldn't an issue of availability.

There's no diversity reception. I tried the diversity extensively in the IC-2820h, and it was hard to detect any difference. When I had a diversity cell phone (800MHz) in my car in the 1980s, it made a BIG difference.

HRO has the 5100 on their site for $799.95. Seems like a good price to me.

Too bad they didn't set it up to do the narrowband splinters. It seemed a natural progression. The cheapo chinese stuff that's come out even does true narrowband. Hey ICOM, What the....?

According to the manual, it will do 6.25 and 12.5 kHz steps. No mention of 7.5 kHz steps which would be necessary for VHF land mobile frequencies. Are there any amateur radio repeaters using 7.5 kHz steps?
