VHF MARINE TRANSCEIVER with DSC

IC-M93D

World’s Slimmest Floating DSC Radio

360°View

2.3” Large High Visibility LCD

2.3” large, high contrast and full dot-matrix LCD ensures good readability under direct sunlight. Large compass screens and large character size provide at-a-glance information.

Slimmest* Floating DSC Radio

By adopting a flat sheet keypad, at 38.5 mm (1.52 in) the IC-M93D is the slimmest floating DSC handheld radio in the world. Fits comfortably in your palm for ease of use.
* As of June 2016, researched by Icom.

Intuitive User Interface

For an operator not familiar with DSC radio operation, the combination of the four directional keypad and soft keys provides straight-forward operation of all functions.

Built-in Class H DSC with a CH70 Receiver

A dedicated DSC receiver continuously monitors CH70. Distress calls can be made with the rear panel button.

Float’n Flash and MOB Auto Set Function

The IC-M93D floats and flashes on the water. Pressing the distress button while Float’n Flash is working will transmit the MOB distress signal, rather than the plain undesignated one for better protection of sailors.

Integrated GNSS Receiver

The integrated GNSS receiver provides your location, bearing and speed with fast-setup time and pinpoint accuracy by using information from GPS, GLONASS, QZSS and SBAS.

Active Noise Cancelling

Active Noise Cancelling digitally removes background noise from both transmit and receive audio and provides clear communication in a noisy maritime environment.

Comes with Rapid Charger, BC-220

The supplied rapid charger, BC-220, charges the BP-285 in 3 hours (approx). The cigarette lighter cable, CP-25H, is also supplied.
