Icom pioneered the floating VHF marine radio and others followed. Setting a new trend with the IC-M24 and now the IC-M25. The IC-M25 has a flashing light feature that activates when the radio hits water, even if the power is off! If you drop this floating radio overboard, it's easier to find than ever, day or night.
Note: The radio in this video is an IC-M24. The IC-M25 features the same Float'n FlashTM technology.
Available colors are Metallic Gray, Pearl White and Marine Blue.
The 7.76-ounce (220g) lightweight and 1.2 inch (30.5mm) slim body is the new benchmark for floating marine transceivers.
The IC-M25’s LCD is 30% larger than the IC-M24’s and clearly shows large channel number and status icons. The buttons on the front panel are well laid out and provide simple and straightforward operation.
The IC-M25 provides a powerful 550mW audio output and received voice can be heard loud and clear. By holding the VOL/SQL button with ▲ (up) button, the volume is instantly turned up to the maximum level.
The optional waterproof speaker microphone, HM-213, provides commercial grade convenience while mounting the radio around the waist.
