With a PLUS version and a basic model, the M73 Series successfully builds upon the existing M72 radio platform. Both M73 radios feature six watts of high transmit power and waterproof IPX8 submersible construction. They feature loud 700mW audio output and approximately 18 hours of operating time. With a new interface design with large directional buttons, you gain fast access to menu items and radio functions. Compact, slim and ergonomic design allows easy one-handed operation. Rigorously tested for durability, they meet MIL-STD 810 specifications. The M73PLUS version adds enhanced audio performance. Active noise canceling cuts through the noisiest of marine environments. “Bass Boost” emphasizes lower frequency for better audio. “Last Call” features allow voice recording and playback functions.
