With its innovative flashing red LED light, an overboard IC-M23 is easy to find, day or night. The light flashes even if the radio is turned off.
* US patent pending.Smallest and lightest in the world. As a buoyant VHF marine transceiver, theIC-M23 has the smallest and lightest body in the world.* * As of February, 2011, researched by Icom. Energy-saving 3.7V circuitry* The IC-M23 is powered by the 3.7V Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-266, to reduce the capacity and weight of the radio. A newly developed PA circuit provides 5W (approx.) RF output and powerful 600mW (typ.) audio even at this low voltage, while saving battery consumption for 10 hours of operating time.** Typical operation with Tx (Hi): Rx: standby=5:5:90. The large, easy to see LCD (32×16 mm) offers a clear 2 - digital channel number indication.Built-in regulated charger circuitry Recharge the IC-M23 by plugging the wall charger directly in to the radio.By eliminating exposed metal charging points, the IC-M23 is even more protected from water damage. The volume loud/mute functions temporarily change the volume to the maximum/minimum level with two touches of a button. Depending on the background noise level, you can easily change the volume level to capture the received message.
