ICOM IC-M93D HAND­HELD VHF RA­DIO

Sea Angler (UK) - - Tackle -

One of the most strik­ing things about this new ra­dio is its size and el­e­gant de­sign. It mea­sures 145mm tall and weighs 310g.

The IC-M93D fea­tures an im­pres­sive 2.4in high-con­trast dot ma­trix, back­lit LCD dis­play. Add Icom’s menu-driven func­tion­al­ity and you have a ra­dio that is easy to see and use. The IC-M93D in­cludes fea­tures in­cor­po­rated on other Icom ra­dios, in­clud­ing ac­tive noise to en­sure your call is clearly heard.

Like many other Icom ra­dios, the IC-M93D is buoy­ant; the LCD, back­lit key­pad and dis­tress but­ton flash mak­ing it eas­ier to re­trieve. There is a use­ful Man Over Board func­tion.

These fea­tures could pro­vide a cen­tral or back-up nav­i­ga­tion tool.

The IC-M93D has other use­ful fea­tures like Dual-Watch/Tri-Watch and the Aquaquake drain­ing func­tion that emits a vi­brat­ing tone and clears water away from the speaker grill. It is also wa­ter­proof to IPX-7.
