M88 VHF Marine Transceiver

  • Not Just Another Marine Radio

    The M88 is compact and built tough to withstand hazardous and inhospitable environments at sea and on land. The JIS7 waterproof rating protects the radio, even if dropped in the water. Yacht customers prefer the M88 because of the 22 programmable land mobile channels, the optional swivel belt clip and the headset options. A push of a button changes the operating band between marine and land mobile channels.

    Nonincendive classification

    Nonincendive radios are incapable of generating thermal or electrical energy sufficient to ignite a volatile atmosphere under normal operating conditions-although sufficient energy for ignition could be generated under fault conditions. The M88 NI version can be used in hazardous locations stipulated under Class 1, Division 2 conditions of use approved by UL. Click here for information on differences between intrinsically safe and nonincendive radios.
