Unlock the Data in your Radio

Home: Welcome

Radio Discovery Tool (RDT) is now available as RDT Live and RDT Pro.

RDT Live is a new product in the series that allows for real-time tracking of IP501H/IP501M and SAT100/SAT100M assets.

RDT Pro is an advanced tool for Icom radios to troubleshoot problems with radio communications and incident analysis based on information imported after the event from the SD card located in select Icom radios, and also includes the capabilities of RDT Live.

Why RDT Pro

RDT Pro is helpful tool in the following scenarios:

  • Determining actual coverage of systems 

  • Investigating interference issues

  • Determining locations of users during reception, transmission and at select intervals for troubleshooting analysis

  • Listening to quality of actual transmissions 

  • Listening to see if transmissions are being interfered with

  • Determining actual channel selected upon transmission or reception

  • Whether voice quality meets requirements (DAQ analysis)

  • Easy creation of custom channel announcements

  • The ability to analyze recorded data from select Icom radios with SD cards for Icom F3400/F5400 Series, F7000/F7500 Series, R8600 and R30 receivers

  • Includes all the capabilities of RDT Live

How RDT Pro Works
  • Icom’s F3400D, F5400D, F7010 & F7510 Series along with the R30 can store received and transmitted voice when provisioned with SD cards. Each voice recording also records the date, time, position, RSSI information and much more.

  • RDT Pro converts the metadata stored in each voice recording the radio performs and displays it in both a table and map format for analysis and review. 

  • Includes all RDT Live Features – refer to that section for more detail

Why RDT Live

RDT Live is for:

  • Determining the location of IP501H/IP501M users

  • Determining the location of SAT100/SAT100M Users

  • Looking at historical tracks of where the users have been

  • Send Messages (SAT100/SAT100M)

  • Emergency status

How RDT Live Works
  • Icom's IP501H and IP501M LTE-CONNECT radios are capable of broadcasting their position in intervals as small as 30 seconds (application depending).

  • This position is relayed through a VE-PG4 or fixed IP501M to RDT Live

  • RDT Live then displays their position and track on Google Earth 

  • SAT100 and SAT100M radios can send their positions when the user transmits

  • This position is relayed through another SAT100 or SAT100M to RDT Live
