Icom M506 VHF Radio
The Icom M506 series gives customers the option of a full featured VHF fixed mount, radio with an integrated AIS receiver or radio with AIS plus NMEA 2000® connectivity (all optional add-ons). The M506 is packed full of features including ‘Last Call’ voice recording function, ‘Active Noise Cancelling’ technology plus Icom’s new intuitive menu-driven user interface and large dot matrix display making it really easy to use.
The Icom M506 sets the standard for marine communications. With the large 3.4" LCD, reading GPS, AIS, DSC and radio menus are easier than ever. The bottom line of the display shows the software key functions and the functions can be toggled with the left and right buttons. The built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling reduces background noise to up to 90% and improves both your transmitted voice and incoming call.
Hailer Horn and Other Options
When connected to an external hailer horn, you can talk to people on the deck or shore from the radio’s microphone and can hear people’s reply via the hailer horn. Foghorn and RX speaker functions are also available.
The optional COMMANDMIC, HM-195B/SW provides 2nd station capability for using the IC-M506 from a separate cabin or tower. Most functions including DSC and AIS functions can be controlled from the COMMANDMIC and can be used as an intercom between the IC-M506 and the COMMANDMIC.
The last call voice recording function automatically saves the last two minutes of the last incoming call. You can also start recording manually. Also, the unit is IPX8 submersible and can be fitted with an optional voice scrambler.
