ICOM M93D VHF/DSC Buoyant Radio
The IC-M93D is a Buoyant VHF Marine Transceiver with DSC capability.
Stylish and slim, this new Icom handheld contains an abundance of features including a dedicated built-in DSC receiver (meets ITU-R M.493-13 Class D DSC), internal GPS and active noise cancelling technology. In addition, an intuitive interface coupled with 2.3 inch full dot matrix high-contrast display and soft keypad makes this a comfortable and easy handportable to operate.
The IC-M93D EURO has the slimmest* body for a floating VHF/DSC marine handheld transceiver. Body depth has been reduced from 43.2mm (IC-M91D) to 38.5mm (IC-M93DEURO) by implementing a flat sheet keypad. This feature allows the radio to be firmly yet comfortably gripped in the palm of your hand. (* As of July 2016, researched by Icom Inc)
The IC-M93D EURO has a dedicated DSC receiver which continuously monitors CH70 and is independent of the main receiver and other operation. The distress button is located on the rear panel and protected against accidental operation with a spring cover.
If the IC-M93D EURO falls into the water, the radio floats and an emergency LED light is automatically activated, even when the unit is turned OFF. In addition, the MOB auto set function automatically sets the nature of distress to Man Overboard allowing for an immediate distress call to be made by the operator (by pushing the Distress button). The position and time* of the radio/person in the water is transmitted. (* If the GNSS position data has not been fixed when the Distress button is pushed, another distress call will be automatically sent after the position data is received.)
The IC-M93D EURO includes the BC-220 rapid charger which charges the standard Li-ion battery pack in just 2.5 hours. The IC-M93D EURO allows 9 hours* of battery life while continuously monitoring CH70. (* Typical operation with Tx: Rx: standby = 5: 5: 90 (Power save: ON))
Active noise cancelling technology removes background noise from both transmitted and received audio. This function makes communication clearer in noisy maritime environments.
The integrated GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receiver provides your location, bearing and speed with fast-setup time and pinpoint accuracy by using information from GPS, GLONASS, QZSS and SBAS (WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS). Using GNSS memory data, the IC-M93D EURO can fix positioning within 812 seconds after the radio is powered ON. Acquired position information can be used for DSC calls and navigation to waypoints.
