Feb 5, 2013

BELLEVUE, WAIcom America, an award-winning manufacturer of marine-band radios and communication systems, is attending the 2013 Progressive® Insurance Miami International Boat Show & Strictly Sail. From February 14-18, Icom will be at Booth #1687 debuting two new VHF handheld radios and a new compact VHF black box fixed mount unit.

"The Miami Boat Show is a great event to announce new radio products," says Icom America National Marine Sales Manager David McLain. "Icom looks forward to showcasing the M73 Series handhelds and the M400BB fixed mount-two new radios that offer boaters great design and robust feature sets."

Icom's M73 Series comprises two handheld models including a "PLUS" version that features "Last Call" voice recording and playback, "Bass Boost" audio function, and active noise cancelling technology. Both handheld versions feature 6-watts of transmit power, 700mW of loud audio output and an ergonomic hourglass shape for comfortable, one-handed operation.

Icom's M400BB fixed mount transceiver is a space-saving black box option with Class D DSC. The M400BB consists of a small main body unit and a supplied COMMANDMICIV™, which is available in Black or Super White colors. The black box option possesses a small physical footprint, flexible installation and an intuitive user interface.
