Icom M73 Handheld VHF Radio

The M73’s ergonomic design fits easily in the user’s hand and is a rugged, durable radio. The large screen and high intensity LCD offers bright, easy to read characters. Yacht customers benefit from the optional VOX headset and adapter option that allows someone handling dock lines to use both hands, while docking the boat, simultaneously communicating with the captain.

Stylish & Rugged

The IC-M73 has a stylish, ergonomic design. A durable and rugged body provides for user-friendly operation and long life. A wide viewing angle, high intensity LCD offers bright, easy to read characters. The IC-M73 continues to offer Icom's best waterproof protection. The radio has been tested to survive after being submersed in 1.5m (4.9ft) depth of water for 30 minutes.

Loud Audio

The IC-M73 uses a BTL (bridge-tied load) amplifier that doubles the audio output. Its internal speaker delivers a loud 700mW audio output with clear sound. The IC-M73's 6 Watts of transmit power will provide extended communication range for the user. A large capacity Lithium-Ion battery allows for 16 hours of operation, under normal conditions.
