Enhanced Functions and Great Digital Features
Lightweight & Compact Body
The ID-51E has a compact 58×105.4×26.4 mm body, and weighs only 255g (approx.) with battery pack and antenna. In this slim body, the ID-51E contains 5W output power, VHF/UHF dual band, D-STAR and integrated GPS receiver.
V/V, U/U, V/U Dualwatch
V/V, U/U Dualwatch example The dualwatch function monitors VHF/VHF, UHF/UHF and VHF/UHF bands simultaneously.* The audio and squelch levels can be set separately for the main and sub-bands.
D-STAR DV Mode (Digital Voice + Data)
The D-STAR (Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio) DV mode is the leading amateur radio digital format.
DR (D-STAR Repeater) Mode Operation
DR Mode example The DR (D-STAR repeater) mode operation allows you to connect to D-STAR repeaters and users more effortlessly. In this mode, just two simple steps are needed.
DV and FM Repeater Search Function
Near repeater exampleThe repeater search function searches for nearby analogue FM repeaters as well as DV repeaters using the repeater memories and the integrated GPS*.
Independent AM/FM Receiver
Broadcast radio example FM and AM broadcast stations can be listened to while using the dualwatch function for monitoring ham bands. When a ham band signal is received, the broadcast station is automatically muted.
Voice Memory Function*
Voice recorder example The QSO recorder function records incoming and outgoing calls. The voice recorder function can record an off-line conversation. The recorded voice message can be transmitted repeatedly. (Up to 60 seconds × 1 channel)
microSD Card Slot
When used with a microSD card (Up to 32GB), the microSD card can store various contents including voice memory, DV auto reply message, TX voice message, QSO log, RX history log and GPS log data. Memory channels, D-STAR repeater memories and other personal settings can be saved to the microSD card and can be loaded to the ID-51E transceiver.
The SPEECH function announces the received call sign (DV Mode), operating frequency, and/or mode. (Depends on users settings.)
Integrated GPS Receiver
GPS receiver transparent image The integrated GPS receiver provides fast start-up time and accurate position. Your current position and altitude are shown on the display and offers a position reporting function in DV mode. The GPS-A mode assists in easy D-PRS operation.
Automatic Reply Function (DV Mode)
When receiving a call addressed to your call sign, the ID-51E can automatically reply your current position information*. Between ID-51E's communication, replied position information can pop up on the caller's display.
GPS Log Function*
The GPS log function logs your position information at regular intervals (1 second–60 seconds, depending on the setting) and memorizes this in the microSD card to export to your PC. The GPS logger only mode turns on the GPS logger function with the radio in sleep mode.
IPX7 Waterproof Construction
The ID-51E has superior IPX7 waterproof protection(1m depth of water for 30 minutes). It can be used in harsh outdoor environments, when hiking, mountain biking, touring and mountain sports.
Menu-Driven User Interface
The directional keypad and quick menu button help you with quick and intuitive access to many settings and speeds up the operation. The large full dot-matrix display with easy-to-read characters increases the amount of information.
RS-MS1A, Free Download Android™ Application
The RS-MS1A allows you to connect your Android™ device to the ID-51E*. You can see the location of repeater sites on a map application and set them to the ID-51E. Text messages and pictures can be sent and received with your Android™ device.

DV Fast Data Mode*
By using data in place of voice frames, the ID-51E transfers data 3.5 times faster (3480 bps) than in the conventional DV mode (with voice). Pictures taken by an Android™ device can be quickly transmitted in the DV Fast Data mode.
Additional Dplus Reflector Link Commands
Dplus reflector link commands are added to the DR function to allow easy multiple
repeater connection through the reflector.
5W Output Power
Using a highly-effcient PA amplifier, the ID-51E generates 5W of RF output power from this compact body.
Long Lasting Battery Pack
The supplied BP-271 provides up to 4.5 hours* of operating time, and the optional large capacity battery pack, BP-272 provides up to 7.5 hours*.
Direct Rapid Charging
Recharge the ID-51E by plugging the supplied wall charger directly in the radio. The BP-271 can be charged in 3 hours (approx.) when the power is OFF.
