Product Overview

Slim, light floating handheld VHF radio delivers uncompromising performance.

The M25 Handheld VHF Radio is light and compact, with a large, backlit LCD display, up to 11 hours battery life, AquaQuake™ draining function, 550mW audio output and USB charging. Float 'n Flash feature emits a bright red, flashing LED light when dropped in water.

Key Features

  • USB charging: A standard USB connector (Micro-B type) is used for charging the M25. Cigarette lighter cables or mobile batteries for charging smartphones or other devices can be used with the IC-M25.
  • Slim body and lightweight: The 7.76-ounce lightweight and 1 3/16" slim body is the new benchmark for floating marine transceivers.
  • AquaQuake™ draining function: When water is in the speaker grill, ICOM's unique AquaQuake™ emits a buzzing sound and sheds water from the speaker. This function assures clear sharp sound at all times.
  • Large LCD, simple user interface: The M25's LCD is 30% larger than the IC-M24's and clearly shows large channel number and status icons. The buttons on the front panel are well laid out and provide simple and straightforward operation.
  • Float 'n Flash: The M25 floats and lets you know where it is with the flashing red LED light and LCD/key backlight.
  • 550mW audio output: The M25 provides a powerful 550mW audio output and received voice can be heard loud and clear. By holding the VOL/SQL button with ▲ (up) button, the volume is instantly turned up to the maximum level.
  • Battery life: The built-in 1500mAh lithium-ion battery allows 11 hours (approx.) of long operation.
