Float 'n flash*
With its innovate flashing red LED light, an overboard IC-M24 is easy to find, day or night. The light flashes even if the radio is turned off.
* US patent pending.
AquaQuake draining function
The vibrating "buzz" sound clears water away from the speaker grill.
Smallest and lightest in the world
As a 5W VHF marine transceiver, the IC-M24 has the smallest and lightest body in the world.*
* As of December, 2010, researched by Icom.
Energy-saving 3.7V circuitry
The IC-M24 is powered by the 3.7V Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-266, to reduce the volume and weight of the radio. A newly developed PA circuit produces 5W (approx.) RF output and powerful 600mW (typ.) audio even at this low voltage, while saving battery consumption for 10 hours of operating time. *
Typical operation with Tx (Hi): Rx: standby=5:5:90.
Easy to see large LCD
The large, easy to see LCD (32 × 16 mm) offers a clear 2-digit channel number indication.
Built-in regular charger circuitry
Recharge the IC-M24 by plugging the wall charger directly in to the radio. By eliminating exposed metal charging points, the IC-M24 is even more protected from water damage.
Volume loud and mute functions
The volume loud/mute functions temporarily change the volume to the maximum/minimum level with two touches of a button. Depending on the background noise level, you can easily change the volume level to capture the received message.
