Icom America, manufacturer of marine radio products, introduced the IC-M400BB VHF fixed mount with Class D DSC.

Comprising only a black box main body and a supplied COMMANDMICIV remote control microphone accessory, the two-piece radio set affords flexible installation and a small physical footprint.

"The M400BB is a black box solution that's space saving and fully functional," said David McLain, Icom America National Marine and Avionics Sales Manager. "The new fixed mount makes for a cleaner helm while incorporating great radio features like Class D DSC, active noise cancelling and Icom’s new intuitive soft-key user interface."

Icom's latest marine transceiver is suited for owners of small boats and shipbuilders searching for a space saving black box solution. The M400BB radio can be firmly screwed down to ship structure and hidden behind a console or wall. Complete access to all communications and Class D DSC functions are controlled remotely from Icom's COMMANDMICIV.

Although compact in size, the M400BB possesses the same robust functionality found in Icom's M424 VHF fixed mount released in Spring 2012. Class D DSC such as position and polling requests/reporting, and distress and test calls. Active noise cancelling, a 10W loudspeaker and public address (PA) are built in for optimal audio performance. The supplied COMMANDMICIV utilizes an intuitive soft-key user interface and is available in Black (Model No. HM-195B) or Super White (Model No. HM-195SW). For additional safety at sea, the IC-M400MB is compatible with Icom's MA-500TR AIS transponder.

The suggested retail price for the IC-M400BB fixed mount and COMMANDMICIV bundle is $549.99 and will be available in April 2013 with a 3-year waterproof warranty.
