ICOM's newest IC-M1V marine VHF hand held tranceiver is not just an upgraded version of the company's IC-M1. It also offers major breakthroughs that are new to the marine communications industry
. Known as the first marine VHF hand held to provide Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery as standard equipment, the IC-M1V also offers five watts of talk power, enabling users (through Li-Ion) 12-14 hours of normal operation without having to recharge.
The IC-M1V is also equipped with a submersible speaker-microphone option that plugs into the waterproof jack located on top of the product. A 30 percent larger backlit LCD display reveals alphanumeric channel descriptions for easy channel identification, and an easy to reach, adjustable squelch.
