ICOM IC-M88

Price IDR 3,800,000

Tough construction, superior waterproofing

The IC-M88 is built tough to withstand hazardous and inhospitable environments at sea and on land. Even if the IC-M88 is dropped into water, complete waterproofing* will protect it from harm. The compact and durable body has been tested to the military specifications (MIL-STD).
* Equivalent to JIS waterproof grade 7. (1m depth for 30 minutes)

Simple operation

6 clearly labelled buttons on the front panel and the volume/power knob maximize simplicity of operation. Even when wearing gloves, the large buttons are easy to operate. A large, clear LCD with backlighting and backlit buttons make night time operation simple.

Li-Ion battery for extra long battery life

With the standard 1700mAh Li-Ion battery pack, the BP-227, you can get up to 15 hours of talk time* without worrying about ‘memory effect’ on batteries. An optional AA alkaline battery case, BP-226, provides a convenient back up and great reassurance in an emergency.
* Typical operation; Tx:Rx:Stand-by duty ratio = 5:5:90

Waterproof speaker-microphone, HM-138

An optional waterproof speaker-microphone, the HM-138, provides reliable operation, even with the IC-M88 securely on your belt.

22 programmable channels for land use

The IC-M88 has 22 programmable channels reserved for Land use (146–174MHz). Wide/narrow channel spacing is programmable for each channel, and CTCSS and DTCS signaling is built-in.
*Appropriate license will be required.

Additional features

  • Auto WX scan and WX Alert function (U.S.A. version only)
  • Simple Up/Down switches for operating channel selection
  • Instant access to Ch. 16 and Ch. 9 (or call channel)
  • Simple add/delete TAG scanning operation
  • Powerful 5W output
  • 2 step power saver
  • 4 level battery indicator
  • The self check function checks internal temperature, connected battery voltage (over voltage detection), and water intrusion
