ICOM IC-M93D HANDHELD VHF RADIO
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.
