Programming issues with Icom F21

I recently purchased 2 2-ch Icom F21 portable 2-way radio's. I was hoping that they would communicate with 2 other 16-ch I-com F21's my husband had. We went through all the channel combinations and the radios will not communicate with one another. I am assuming this is a programming issue, but I was wondering if there was anything else I can do with out sending them all back to the dealer.

What you have is a programming issue. The radios need to be "cloned" so they will all work together. You can buy the software on line for about $65.00 then you can change frequencies when ever you want.

How to add frequencies/channels to ICOM IC-F21 two-way radios?


Sorry, but your radio is limited to 16 channels in the 400-430 and 440-470 MHz ranges. The number of channels cannot be expanded, nor can the frequency coverage.

My IC-F21 portable radio wont communicate with each other. is there a reset?


You will need the programming software to check all settings of the two radios. If both radios are programmed the same then you need to run tests on why they wont communicate to each other. Unfortunatly there is no "reset" for the radios. Carl
