With its innovative flashing red LED light, an
overboard IC-M23 is easy to find, day or night.
The light flashes even if the radio is turned off.
* US patent pending.
Smallest and lightest in the world
As a buoyant VHF marine transceiver, the
IC-M23 has the smallest and lightest body in
the world.* * As of February, 2011, researched by Icom.
Energy-saving 3.7V circuitry*
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.
US patent pending.
Easy to see large LCD
The large, easy to see LCD (32×16
mm) offers a clear 2-digit channel
Built-in regular charger circuitry
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.
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
