Compact size, but every inch an Icom. Great features like AquaQuake™, which automatically clears the speaker of water. Favorite channel memory, for faster access to where you want to be. Class D DSC, so the radio constantly monitors DSC Channel 70, even if you are making another call. Force 5 Audio™ offers loud, crisp reception from the front-facing speaker that is easy to hear, even over engine or wind noise. Compatible with Icom’s new MA-500TR AIS transponder, so you can make an individual DSC call without having to input an MMSI number.
