Icom bring IC-M423G and IC-M400BB fixed marine VHF radios back

The IC-M423GE (formerly the IC-M423G) and the IC-M400BBE (formerly the IC-M400BB) have been slotted back into Icom’s fixed marine VHF line up. Both models are almost identical to their predecessors except that they now feature an integrated GPS and an external GPS antenna, to meet the latest ITU-R M493-14 regulations.

Both radios are said to be firm favourites with commercial and leisure marine users. Their reintroduction means Icom’s HM-195CMI Multi-Station Commandmic Interface is also back allowing owners and users the option of controlling the IC-M423GE and IC-M400BBE with a pair of remote Commandmics.

The IC-M423GE VHF/DSC marine radio is said to be ideal for customers who are looking for a compact radio for their boat with advanced functions and dual station control. The radio features built-in active noise-cancelling technology that provides superb audio performance. The optional COMMANDMIC allows people to control all the functions of the IC-M423GE as well as being able to be used as an intercom with the radio.  The IC-M423GE has a suggested retail price of £329.99 (including VAT).

The IC-M400BBE ‘black box’ marine radio solution can be installed out of sight, which is important where space is at a premium. Controlled by the Icom HM-195GB COMMANDMIC, this allows operation of all radio functions including DSC, radio, foghorn, and hailer horn from the cockpit or fly bridge. The HM-195GB COMMANDMIC utilises the same user soft key interface used on Icom’s latest range of marine radios making control of the radio very straight forward. The IC-M400BBE has suggested retail price of £479.99 SRP (including VAT).

The HM-195CMI compact black box interface transforms the IC-M400BBE Black box VHF/DSC from a single station to a dual station system, and the IC-M423GE fixed VHF/DSC from a dual station to tri-station system. It comes with a suggested retail price of £240.00 SRP (including VAT).

All these products are now available from Icom marine radio dealers nationwide.
