High Powered Floating Handheld

The IC-M37E provides a powerful 6 W of transmit output power making it well-suited for long-distance communication.  The powerful 700 mW audio output provides clear communication even in noisy environments.

Large Keys and Easy to Grip Design

The IC-M37E is a perfect size offering large keys and easy-to-grip design.  Mariners will appreciate the big LCD that quickly shows channel numbers and status icons.  This radio is rugged enough for commercial use yet is suited to leisure users too, making it an ideal choice for clubs, individuals and commercial users alike.

Channel History Function

The IC-M37E features a useful Channel History Function.  This feature stores the last five channels used for easy recall at the press of a single key which is very handy for any voyage.

Buoyant with flashing red LED

The radio will float if accidently dropped into the water and can be located by its flashing red LED light and LCD/key backlight.

AquaQuake water draining function

The IC-M37E is built to IP57 dust and waterproof protection rating (1 metre for 30 minutes).  The radio also features an AquaQuake draining function to clear water away from the speaker grill preventing the speaker from becoming waterlogged.

Flexible Charging Options

The supplied li-ion battery can provide more than 12 hours of operating time.  The radio is supplied with a drop-in charger with a neat little clip to keep the radio in place in moving environments.  The drop-in charger can be powered by a mains PSU (supplied) as well as 12V on board via a USB adapter socket making charging very versatile.

BP-297 Battery Case Supplied as Standard*
