The Icom M73 Handheld VHF Radio is a sturdy, durable radio with an ergonomic design that fits nicely in the user's hand. Bright, easy-to-read characters are provided by the huge screen and high-intensity LCD. The optional VOX headset and adapter, which allows someone managing dock lines to use both hands while docking the boat and talking with the skipper, is available to yacht clients.
Stylish & Rugged
The Icom M73 Handheld VHF Radio is elegant and comfortable to use. User-friendly operation and long life are provided by a sturdy and tough body. A high-intensity LCD with a broad viewing angle provides bright, easy-to-read characters. Icom's finest waterproof protection remains to be the IC-M73. The radio was tested to see if it could survive 30 minutes submerged in 1.5m (4.9ft) of water.
The audio output of the IC-M73 is doubled thanks to a BTL (bridge-tied load) amplifier. Its internal speaker produces a powerful, clear 700mW audio output. The 6 Watt transmit power of the IC-M73 will give the user a longer communication range. Under typical conditions, a big capacity Lithium-Ion battery can run for 16 hours.
