The IC-M73EURO maintains our highest level of waterproof protection, delivering unparalleled durability. This radio has undergone rigorous testing and has proven its ability to survive being submerged in water up to a depth of 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) for 30 minutes.

Slim, Hourglass Body Wide Viewing Angle LCD

The IC-M73EURO features a sleek and ergonomic design that combines style with functionality. Its durable and rugged body ensures user-friendly operation and a long lifespan. The high-intensity LCD with a wide viewing angle provides bright and easily readable characters, enhancing the overall user experience.

700 mW Loud Audio

The IC-M73EURO utilizes a BTL (bridge-tied load) amplifier, effectively doubling the audio output for enhanced performance. Its internal speaker produces a powerful 700mW audio output, ensuring clear and loud sound quality.

AquaQuake™ Water Draining Function

The AquaQuake™ prevents audio degradation from a water-logged speaker. This function removes water from the speaker grill by vibrating the speaker cone. You can hear clear audio with this function.

6 W RF Output Power

The IC-M73's 6 Watts*1 of transmit power provides extended communication range for the user. A large capacity Lithium-Ion battery, BP-245H allows for 17 hours of operation, under normal conditions*2.

*1 1W for FRG version, 5 W for AUS version.
*2 Typical operation with 5:5:90 duty ratio. 20 hours for basic version.

Dualwatch and Tri-watch function

The Dualwatch and Tri-watch functions allow for periodic checking of Channel 16 while operating on another channel. This feature proves convenient when communicating with your friends' vessels or during sailing regattas, enabling you to make important announcements about the race.
