Floating Handheld VHF Radio - 6W: Clear voice + voice boost: In marine environments there are many sources of noise that can affect the quality of your communications, such as engine noise, breaking surf and more. The IC-M36 automatically adjusts the outgoing voice and the incoming audio to compensate for the ambient noise level: whether you are in a loud environment or in a quiet area, the IC-M36 ensures your radio conversation is sent and received as clearly as possible.
And YES, It FLOATS: Continuing the legacy of the IC-M34, the fully submersible IC-M36 floats back up to the surface if dropped overboard, even if the optional speaker microphone, HM-165, is attached. AquaQuake draining function: The vibrating "buzz" sound clears water away from the speaker grill. LOUD button: When you need an instant "boost" in the volume, a simple push of the "LOUD" button gives you full volume immediately. In addition, holding the "LOUD" button mutes the audio output.
Noise cancelling microphone: The sub-microphone on the rear panel inverts phase and cancels out ambient noise from the main microphone. As a result, the IC-M36 reduces the effect of background noise (particularly trebly noise) from the transmitted signal and makes it easier to catch voice communication. Automatic volume adjustment: When in an engine room or high noise environment, the sub-microphone detects the ambient noise and the IC-M36 automatically increases the volume output to suit the surrounding environment.
Low power consumption: Although the IC-M36 delivers a high 6W RF output and 700mW audio output, its current saving circuit offers a practical 8 hours1 of operating time with the supplied 980mAh Lithium-Ion battery pack.1Typical operation with Tx (Hi): Rx: standby=5:5:90 Large buttons and slim dimensions: Thanks to the large, easy-to-operate buttons, the IC-M36 provides intuitive operation. A pinched-waist slender body makes it easy to hold and carry the radio, and is surprisingly compact for a floating radio.
