Product Overview

The M85 is a small, light and tough radio! 

Icom's new commercial grade marine radio, the M85, is the smallest, lightest and toughest 5 watt radio on the market today that operates on the full spectrum of commercial frequencies of 136-174MHz. The M85 is built to MIL-STD 810, has an IP67 waterproof rating and can handle tough conditions on sea and land. The programmable multi-function button allows you to easily switch between marine and land mobile channel groups. 100 programmable land mobile channels and the built-in voice scrambler for private communications make the M85 popular among yacht and commercial customers. The M85 also features man down, man overboard and lone worker automatic alarms that can be enabled or disabled by the user. The man down alarm can be set to trigger if the transceiver leans past 45, 65 or 70 degrees from upright for a preset period of time. The man overboard alarm will sound when the transceiver is in water and the lone worker alarm sounds if the transceiver is not operated for a preset period of time. For more details, see the IC-M85 Instruction Manual.
