IC-F61M Onboard Handheld Radio, New!

IC-F61M Onboard Handheld Radio, New!

Designed for the commercial maritime market place, the Icom F61M UHF handheld transceiver is the first purpose designed onboard UHF radio which satisfies all the legal requirements of the onboard UHF specification, ETS 300 720-1. Normal PMR radios are not compliant with this strict protocol.

Some of this models key functions are as follows:

Waterproof to IPX-7
The IC-F61M meets the same waterproofing standards as many Icom marine VHF handhelds, and brings a new durability to tough working environments. This makes it ideal for anyone whose communication needs place them both below or above deck.

Vibration alert function
Especially useful in noisy environments such as an engine room.

Built-in voice recorder
Records incoming calls. Up to a maximum of 8 minutes can be recorded meaning you can receive messages even when you are temporarily away from the radio. Alternatively, you can manually start recording incoming calls or when transmitting your message.

Lone worker function
this works in a very simple way. When the radio is not operated for a preset period (1 to 255 minutes), the radio sounds a beep and requires the user to push the emergency button. If the emergency button is not pushed for a preset time, an emergency signal is automatically transmitted and informs co-workers or a controller that the radio is currently unused. This feature is integrated into the radio requiring no additional cost for the operator.

The IC-F61M features a compact body that is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. It is extra-durable and shockproof, whilst weighing less than most professional radios on the market. Because of the waterproof construction of this radio, this radio is highly corrosion resistant and dust proof, making it ideal for the harsh maritime environment.

The IC-F61M is supplied with a rechargeable 1700mAh Lithium-Ion battery providing a practical 10 hours of operating time. An 8 character 14-segment alphanumeric LCD offers easily recognisable status and performance information and ease of operation in low-light environments. Built-in signalling capabilities and a built-in inversion type voice scrambler enable secure group communication without compromising the waterproof integrity of the radio.
