This is not just another marine radio! iCOM’s IC-M88 VHF marine transceiver features a compact and durable body that has been tested to the military specifications (MIL-STD). Even if it is dropped into water, its complete waterproofing (1m depth for 30 minutes) will protect it.
Operation is simple with 6 clearly labeled buttons on the front panel and the volume/power knob. Even when wearing gloves, the large buttons are easy to operate. A large, clear LCD with backlighting and backlit buttons make night time operation simple.
A Li-Ion battery gives extra-long battery life. With the standard 1700mAh Li-Ion battery pack, the BP-227, you can get up to 15 hours of talk time* without worrying about ‘memory effect’ on batteries. An optional AA alkaline battery case, BP-226, provides a convenient back up and great reassurance in an emergency.
The IC-M88 has 22 programmable channels reserved for land use (146-174MHz). Wide/narrow channel spacing is programmable for each channel, and CTCSS and DTCS signaling is built-in. Appropriate license will be required.
