ICOM IC-SAT100 PTT Iridium Satellite Radio
PRE-ORDER NOW - EXPECTED RESTOCK DATE IS MARCH 1ST, 2022
At the touch of a button, the ICOM IC-SAT100 PTT Iridium Satellite Radio allows users all over the world to connect with a group of PTT radios. The IC-SAT100 accomplishes this by utilizing the Iridium® satellite network, which covers the whole globe, including both poles, and allows for wide-area global communication from anywhere on the planet.
What is Satellite PTT?
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.
With a single push of the transmit (PTT) button, IC-SAT100 users can immediately begin chatting to all radios in the same talkgroup, unlike satellite phones.
Wide Area Global Communications
The Iridium satellite network covers the whole globe, including both poles, and can deliver global communications over long distances anywhere on the globe*.
*Carrying and/or using the IC-SAT100 may be illegal in some countries or regions.
Waterproof, Dust-tight, and Durable Body
The IC-SAT100 is dust-tight and waterproof to IP67 (1 m depth of water for 30 minutes), making it perfect for usage in tough outdoor conditions. The radio also complies with MIL-STD 810G requirements. The temperature range for operation is –30°C to +60°C (–22°F to 140°F).
