Icom pioneered the floating VHF marine radio, and others followed. Setting a
new trend yet again, the IC-M23 floats and lets you know where it is with the
flashing feature. The radio flashes in the water, even when the power is off!
It is smaller and lighter than any other buoyant marine handheld too.

The IC-M23 is powered by the 3.7V Lithium-Ion
battery pack, BP-266, to reduce the capacity
and weight of the radio. A newly developed PA
circuit provides 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.

The large, easy to see LCD (32×16mm) offers a clear
2 - d i g i t channel number indication.

Recharge the IC-M23 by plugging the wall
charger directly in to the radio. By eliminating
exposed metal charging points, the IC-M23 is
even more protected from water damage.

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.
