On the water, reliable communications is of critical importance; a life-line to the outside world. Your boat may be seaworthy, but is your VHF handheld transceiver? The IC-M15's rugged construction can weather all the demands of the marine environment with the important distinction of being waterproof!* Add simple operation with advanced features and you have marine communications that won't let you down.
*Up to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes.
Waterproof with rugged construction
Waterproof protection over a die-cast aluminum frame provides the durability and dependability you need in all situations.
All marine and weather channels + 24 memory channels and 1 call channel
You can operate on all marine and weather channels and store often-used channels in 24 memories for easy recall and convenient scanning. In addition, a programmable call channel is provided for instant recall of your most-used-channel (eg. CH 9, the non-commercial calling channel).
A variety of scans
Four different scan functions are available: regular channel scan and memory channel scan with both of these having a selectable priority scan function. Choose your scan and find out what's going on around you.
Selectable dual watch/tri-watch
Dual watch monitors the distress channel (CH 16) while operating on another channel; tri-watch monitors both channel 16 and the call channel while operating on another channel. You can be sure of receiving important calls using either of these watch systems.
Optional voice scrambler unit
For private communications, an optional UT-79 VOICE SCRAMBLER UNIT is available. Both easy-to-install and easy-to-use; 128 scramble codes provide privacy in communicating secret fishing spots, etc.
