Aimed as a high tier counterpart to the IC-M71, which has become the choice of many maritime professionals across the globe, the IC-M73EURO contains many of the features that made the IC-M71 popular and also incorporates two new important features; a new voice recording function and Icom’s active Noise Cancelling Technology.
At first glance you can see that the IC-M73EURO has a similar stylish design. It retains the same durable and rugged body and advanced waterproof protection (1.5m depth for 30 minutes, equivalent to IPX8 rating). This is a radio you can use in the rain, snow or in any other severe weather conditions!
However a lot more has been packed into this new model. A “last call” voice recording function automatically saves the last incoming call for 1 minute, very important in reclarifying important transmissions that may have been missed.
The IC-M73EURO features Icom’s Active Noise Cancelling Technology reducing background noise by up to 90%, making sure you are heard when you really need to, such as when weather conditions are poor or if engines are running. The IC-M73EURO also features “Bass Boost” signal processing technology that emphasizes low pitched sound to provide a rich bass sound for both transmit and receive signals. …another enhancement to improved audio quality.
The IC-M73EURO features excellent audio performance. Its internal speaker delivers a loud 600mW output with clear sound even in noisy environments. In addition, a water draining support function ejects water from the speaker grille with low frequency sound.
The IC-M73EURO comes as standard with a high capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack (1900mAh) which provides up to 18 hours operating time.
This multi featured stylish VHF portable is an ideal transceiver for any leisure boat owner. The advanced features will also appeal to a range of commercial operators, Marinas and Port Authorities. This durable VHF will stand up well for Search and Rescue organisations such as HM Coastguard, RNLI and National Coastwatch stations.
Offering excellent value for money, this radio will appeal to a range of leisure craft users from kayakers to ocean going yachtsmen. Preview products will be shown on the Icom UK stand (B172) at the London Boat Show 2013. The IC-M73EURO will be available by the start of the season with a target retail price of £225.00 (ex.VAT)
Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager at Icom UK said, ‘As the true specialists in radio communications, Icom’s Research and Development Team has sought improved battery performance and greater clarity of audio. Icom have once again engineered a product that is extremely desirable on a number of fronts including style, functionality, usability and top performance.’
