ICOM Offers New
VHF Marine Radio
ICOM America intends to offer its new IC-M402 marine VHF pending
FCC approval. The new unit incorpo- rates the latest in user-convenient digital technology, and is rated JIS-7 sub- mersible. The IC-M402 includes a built- in, emergency response feature called
DSC watch function, a feature usually found only on high-end radios. The fea- ture allows the IC-M402 to continuous- ly and automatically alternate monitor- ing between emergency DSC channel 70 and another tuned channel. The new radio can be integrated with ICOM's
Commandmic (HM-127), effectively allowing for full, remote control of the radio. It can also connect with the GPS and act as a position repeater.
The IC-M402's large, new-design
LCD and speaker are designed to make the radio easy to sea and hear in all con- ditions. List price for the radio is $360.50.
