If you are looking for the next generation VHF/DSC then the Icom IC-M432 could be perfect for your needs. Alongside the optional HM-195 COMMANDMIC, the IC-M423 benefits from a new and much improved user interface which makes driving this Icom fixed wall mount incredibly simple. This VHF/DSC is incredibly compact and will easily fit into any console. Its smaller size does in no way mean a loss of performance and it certainly packs a proverbial punch. Not only that, the Icom M423 is able to withstand submersion in up to meter of water for up to 30 minutes, therefore it is equivalent to the IPX7 standard.
The IC-M423’s loud speaker boasts an audio output of 10W and it ensures that you will clearly hear your calls in the wildest of conditions. There is also a Public Address and Fog Horn function, that when attached to a hailer horn will expand the usefulness of the Icom M423.
Now, let’s take a look at some of the other features of the Icom M423 to demonstrate exactly what sets it apart from the competition. To make it that extra little bit easier, we have broken these features down into different sections for your convenience.
Background Nose is Reduced by up to 90%
One of the most innovative features of this VHF/DSC is its built-in bidirectional active noise canceller, which reduces background noise by up to 90% and offers a vast improvement in your transmitted voice and incoming calls. This is ideal for those times when the weather conditions are particularly harsh or when your engine is running.
New Marine Family Common User Interface
As you can see in the video below, the IC-M423 boasts an easy to use interface that will be incorporated into future Icom radio devices. Simple operation and navigation of the menu is ensured through the Marine Family User Interface, which provides simple operation for you.
10W Audio Output
There is a built-in 10W amplifier which enhances and increases the audio from an additional external speaker. The IC-M423 featurees a public address function that enables you to make an announcement from microphone just like a loud speaker, and the fog horn can also be emitted from the additional external speaker as well.
Built-in Class D DSC
There is a built-in DSC watch function which monitors Ch.70 (DSC channel) activity, even when you are receiving another channel. There are a variety of DSC functions including: distress, individual, group, all ships, urgency, safety, position request/report, polling request and DSC test calls.
Common GPS/NAV Interface
Your current position and time are displayed on the Icom M423’s display when it is connected to an external GPS receiver. NMEA 0183 connectivity enables you to transfer positional information from another vessel.
Compatible with Icom MA-500TR Class B AIS Transponder
It is possible to integrate the IC-M423 with Icom’s MA-500TR Class B AIS Transponder enabling you to transmit individual DSC calls to a selected vessel immediately without manual MMSI entry. This is essential if you are waiting to contact vessels on the AIS screen, which is, of course, an essential safety feature in an emergency.
