IC-M33 Buoyant VHF Marine Transceiver (Discontinued)

The IC-M33 is the world's first marine VHF transceiver that floats in water. This revolutionary new radio has been designed to be easy to use and is supplied as standard with a 980mAh Li-Ion battery pack provides 9 hours of operating time. The ergonomic design of the case means it's easy to hold and use, even with gloved hands and as with all Icom handhelds, it features a large, easy to read backlit LCD which clearly shows all necessary information. Another innovative feature is the "AquaQuake" draining function - a vibrating sound from the loudspeaker clears water away from the speaker grille.

This product is no longer available. If you are looking for a replacement, please visit the IC-M35 Buoyant VHF Marine Transceiver product page.

Buoyant Waterproof VHF Marine Transceiver
If you drop the IC-M33 into water, the radio comes up to the surface so that you can easily retrieve it from out of the water. As the radio has a rugged waterproof body*, it will keep on working even after it has been submerged.
*1m depth for 30 minutes, equivalent to IPX7. Please note that the IC-M33 is not designed to be used under the water

Easy to See LCD with Large Channel Indication
The IC-M33 has an easy to see LCD (32x16 mm) with a clear 2-digit channel number indication. The Volume and SQL levels are shown in the display. LCD and key backlighting are standard features, ideal for night time operation.

Easy to Use, Easy to Hold
Weighing only 305g, the stylish IC-M33 has an easy-to-hold-rounded body that fits comfortably in your hand. 9 large buttons on the front panel provide simple straightforward operation.
