IC-M330GE Compact VHF/DSC Marine Mounted Radio.

The Icom have excelled again and produced one of the smallest fixed VHF/DSC radios in the world.  The IC-M330GE’s front face is so compact that it matches the size of a modern smartphone.  However, despite its small size, the IC-M330GE has all the hallmarks of Icom’s stylish design, ease of use and performance.

Ultra Compact Body, Flexible Installation

The compact IC-M330GE measures only 156.5 (W) × 66.5 (H) ×110.1 (D) mm, making it 35% smaller than previous IC-M323G/423G models (see comparison on the right.) This makes it ideal for a cockpit where space is limited.

Intuitive User Interface

A combination of the directional keypad and soft keys provides simple, smooth operation. Most used functions are assigned to soft keys for quick one push function access.

New Speaker Delivers Dynamic, Clear Audio

A newly designed speaker delivers distortion-free clear audio even at full volume. It provides dynamic and clear audio over a wide bass and treble range.

Class-Leading Receiver Performance

The IC-M330GE’s receiver provides reliable communication in RF busy environment like a marina. (Selectivity and IMD: more than 70 dB)

Built-in Class D DSC

The radio monitors CH 70 continuously, even while you are receiving another channel. DSC functions include distress, individual, group, all ships, urgency, safety, position request/report, polling request and DSC test calls.

Built in GPS Receiver and External GPS Antenna

The GPS receiver provides your location, bearing and speed by using information from GPS, GLONASS and SBAS. The acquired position information can be used for DSC calls. An external GPS antenna is supplied to maximise coverage.

IC-M330GE is the first Icom fixed marine VHF radio that complies with the latest maritime ITU standard “ITU-R M493-14” this standard, in essence, requires an external GPS antenna. ITU-R M493-14 will be compulsory from November 2018. All maritime class D fixed radios from all manufacturers will need to comply after this date.
