Icom’s new IC-M31 handheld - incredible features  - exceptional value!

Affordable quality is the inspiration behind the NEW Marine VHF waterproof handheld transceiver from radio communications specialist, Icom. The IC-M31 is a simple-to-use, value-for-money package that is sure to make waves in the marine market!

The compact NEW IC-M31 is designed for reliable, simple and safe operation. Featuring a one-piece, die-cast aluminium chassis and an ultra-durable polycarbonate case the IC-M31 has a long-lasting, rechargeable Ni-Cd battery that fits inside the radio case and locks firmly into place, offering a waterproof seal. For increased flexibility, the IC-M31 also includes an empty battery case, which can be used with any standard AA battery cells, providing a convenient back-up and great reassurance in an emergency.

Despite its competitive price, the IC-M31 still carries many of the features that users have come to expect from Icom. These include one-touch channel selection TAG scanning; one-touch channel 16 selection; normal/priority scan selections; and dual/tri watch. There’s even a self-check diagnostic feature.

The clear LCD on the IC-M31 is one of the biggest on the market, and with the backlighting turned on, channel numbers and other display indications (like the 4-level remaining power indicator) are easy to see, day or night. The generously-sized keypad is also backlit, and settings may be locked by the radio user to prevent accidental channel changing.

All U.S., International and Marina channels are built-in. A sturdy belt clip comes as standard, or the user may upgrade to the optional swing-type, quick-remove belt clip.

“Icom is extremely pleased to introduce IC-M31 into the UK marine market”, said Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager for Icom UK Ltd. “Not only does this model strengthen our successful range of marine handheld radios but, at such a good price, it also makes them more accessible than ever before. The launch of the IC-M31 firmly underlines our position as the number one supplier of marine radio communication products”.

The IC-M31 will be available at the London International Boat Show 2004 at Excel with a price of £159.00 inc. VAT.
