Icom M72 HANDHELD VHF
Mfg Part No.
Highlights for Icom M72 HANDHELD VHF
Compact Body, Great “Form Factor”
A compact design, hourglass body-shape and comfortable side grips give the IC-M72 an outstanding “form factor” – it’s easy to use with just one hand!
The M72’s impressive audio output (600mW typ.) is loud enough to hear in most any marine environment – even over loud engine noise.
Submersible PLUS (IPX8)
The IC-M72 offers Icom’s best-ever protection against water intrusion. This radio has been tested to survive after being submersed in 1.5m (4.9ft) depth of water for 30 minutes.
Wide Viewing Angle LCD
A wide viewing angle, high intensity LCD is used in the IC-M72, offering bright, easy to read characters. The bright LCD backlighting and backlit keypad is great for night time operation.
30% Shorter Antenna
The IC-M72’s antenna is engineered to perform with typical Icom efficiency even though it is nearly 30% shorter than previous Icom marine antenna.
