ICOM M25 VHF - Floating Radio
ICOM M25 Buoyant VHF Marine Handheld Transceiver
Icoms new IC-M25 buoyant marine VHF radio, which floats and flashes when dropped into the water, has the lightest body in the market for a floating VHF radio at just 220g. New for an Icom, this new radio has a tidy USB connector for convenient charging from a variety of electronic devices.
Its 30.5mm slim body is extremely comfortable to handle. Large LCD display and laser cut, curved shape buttons are well laid out and provide simple and straightforward operation. In fact, the IC-M25 LCD screen is 30% larger than its predecessor, the IC-M23, allowing you to clearly see the channel number and status icons.
The IC-M25 floats when dropped in water. Not only does the LCD and key backlight on the front panel flash, but also the red LED light blinks through the rear panel showing the place of the radio so that it can be easily retrieved.
The built-in 1500mAh lithium-ion battery provides 5 Watts of transmit power and allows 11 hours (approximate) of operation. The IC-M25 has a Micro-B USB connector and can be charged with the supplied AC adaptor, BC-217 in 3 hours (approx.).
The IC-M25 provides a powerful 550mW (12 Ohm load) audio output and received voice can be heard loud and clear. The Volume loud and mute functions offer quick adjustment of the volume level by holding the VOL/SQL button and pushing the up or down button. The optional HM-213 waterproof speaker microphone provides extra convenience for leisure users.
